Amanda remembers the exact moment she fell for the beauty. She explained,

I knew I fell in love when there was a weekend I was supposed to be going home to see my family and I literally could not get myself to leave [Elena’s] house. I kept stalling and making up reasons to wait a little bit longer before I left. I had never felt that feeling of not wanting to leave someone so badly!
