Does Channel Ten not understand what fragile beings we are?
Yes, Bachie favourite Brooke left the mansion tonight and we’re not quite ready to talk about it but we’ll do our best.
(Or you can go ahead and check out the recap here.)
The 23-year-old social worker decided to head home after suspecting her strong feelings weren’t reciprocated by the rugby star… seeing as, you know, he’d been dating, pashing and having half-naked swims with a bunch of other women at the same time for weeks and stuff.
Yeah, that’ll do it.
But as Brooke pulled the Honey Badger aside mid-rose ceremony to courageously lay her feelings on the line, he just… sat there.
While we’d been speculating for weeks that Brooke was going to take herself out of the equation, we didn’t expect it to be that… emotional.
(We know we weren’t the only ones yelling at the TV for Nick to beg her to stay.)
Alas, he let her walk, and where are the tissues because this is just too much for us.
As the dramatic rose ceremony unfolded, fans took to Twitter to applaud her for high-tailing it outta there before getting hurt.
Also just to make some hilarious observations about the episode, because the internet.
Here are our favourite tweets of the night:
#thebachelorau My favourite thing about Brooke is her unquestioning knowledge that a woman has agency, to choose what they do, for them, for their best reasons.
Shes going to walk and prove that she is a queen who deserves more than surface level platitudes.
