On Monday night’s episode of Bachelor in Paradise, Queen Lenora had the feminist moment we’ve all been waiting for. Holding her rose, she made the decision to keep American Jared (officially the most random person to ever appear on Australian television) in paradise, rather than Daniel, the Canadian we thought she’d been flirting with.
Did she make Daniel feel like a dirty street pie? A ‘lil bit.
As she pinned her rose to the shirt of a man she was yet to have a conversation with, her voiceover said, “Towards the end of the cocktail party, Daniel sits there and he looks at me, and he says the most slimy, chauvinistic, derogatory comment.”
“I realised that this guy’s not really having a healthy effect on the environment here. You give me the creeps, mate. American Jared seems like a really loving person and I think he’d be awesome to keep around in paradise.”
But we were all left with one very important question: WHAT WAS THE SLIMY COMMENT?!
After the episode, a rumour started circulating online that Daniel said, and I quote, “suck my Canadian bacon,” which, yeah, is pretty derogatory.
But speaking to Mamamia on Tuesday morning, Daniel said he doesn't "think" his comment to Laurina was about his Canadian bacon.
"I don't really talk about that sort of thing... that was season three [of US Bachelor in Paradise]."
"I have certain jokes for the season. But I don't think it was that."
So what did he say?
"I think I might have said something about, I think I said something along the lines of... she stood up and I said 'you have a nice bum' or something. Something about her bum I think."
Somehow, we think it was probably more X-rated than that, but fine.
There was another arguably derogatory comment made by Daniel, however, that was aired on Tuesday night's episode: "They call me Geppetto 'cause I make women my puppets."
