Apparently everyone has a Jake Ellis story.
But no one has more of a Jake Ellis story than Florence Moerenhout.
You see, before Bachelor in Paradise even started filming Flo and Jake “hooked up”.
“It was not that big of a deal,” Florence explained to Mamamia. “We all meet at events and we started hanging out and hooking up. There was a little bit of thing there but it was never anything serious.”
Flo said their relationship just fizzled out because they were in different states.
Once the show started filming, however, the ex-bachie contestants kind of rekindled their very not serious hook up and, well, it was a lil’ bit heated.
Hurricane Flo is back. Post continues.
There was a whole bunch of chatin’, a lot of shoutin’, and at least one incident of glass throwin’.
Then at the next rose ceremony Jake decided to give his rose to Megan Marx rather than Florence. And Florence was sent home.
Now Florence has explained why she thinks Jake kept her around up until that point.
“It’s just a feeling I got, something didn’t add up and we’ve all seen that he was lying,” Florence told Mamamia.
“When he came in and he was trying so hard to take me on a date, I was like ‘Why didn’t it take off when we were in Australia?’
“Why are you now so keen whereas we were taking it so easy when we were outside of this.”
Florence believes there are two possible motivations behind Jake’s actions.
“Either he was like ‘Out of everyone here I know that I like you and I know we get along and I want to explore this further’, which is what he said.
If I had to describe my time in Paradise with one word, it would definitely be: “lol”. Time to get that crazy/hot matrix back in balance???????????? Wishing Ali & Grant, Keira & Jarrod, Jake & Megan, Simone & Apollo and Sammy & Tara all the love, luck and happiness in the world – you all deserve it.???????????? @bachelorinparadiseau #bachelorinparadiseau #wellthatwasabloodydisaster outfit via @theonlydress_hire, thanks for all the amazing dresses✨
