It’s perhaps the biggest mystery of our time: What happened between Bachelor in Paradise‘s Jake Ellis and Florence Moerenhout before they both turned up in Osher’s commune?
From the moment they arrived in Fiji, all we’ve been told is some really vague details about how they hooked up (did you kiss? Or did you have sex? This is important) and then it fizzled out. But did it fizzle? Or did Jake a lil bit ghost Florence? Because that would explain her uncontrollable anger and also her flippant use of the word ‘sociopath’.
Speaking to Jake on Wednesday morning, I asked for a play-by-play of what went down between he and Florence before they entered the show. While he laughed at the term ‘play-by-play,’ I remained straight-faced, because Jake, pls, this is no laughing matter. You see, I’m a real journalist, and it’s my job to ask the real questions.
“Look, Florence and I, we started chatting, um, I guess through social media just after her season, just a bit of back and forth, you know banter and laughs,” he said.
“She’s got a good sense of humour so that’s why we got along.
“Then we met up in Perth once after we did a charity Family Feud, and then, yeah, we continued to talk for a bit after that, but it just got to the point where, you know, we just weren’t right for each other.”
