As Apollo Jackson made his debut on Bachelor in Paradise on Sunday night’s episode, we watched on in wonder.
Because from the moment he entered Mango Bay resort in Fiji, the whole show began falling to pieces. Contestants Simone Ormesher and Elora Murger started fighting over him, revealing each other’s secrets to the nation in the process.
And he, likely unintentionally, found himself stepping on Jarrod Woodgate’s toes. (Simone got very cosy with Apollo in a one-on-one date. And Keira Maguire said she would “probably kiss” Apollo, because – let’s face it – who wouldn’t?)
“Well don’t the girls start frothing,” Jarrod told the camera in a moment of bitterness.
But in a light-hearted interview with Sunday night’s The Project that aired before the show, 25-year-old Apollo seemingly added insult to injury.
He kept quiet about Simone and Elora’s spat, but he did throw a thinly-veiled jab at 32-year-old Jarrod.
“He was looking like a bit of a Fijian lobster,” he said, to much laughter from the crowd.
Was it about Jarrod’s sunburn? His jealousy? Both? We must know.
