Australia, we need to talk about Fireman Cam's final moments on The Bachelorette.


We are gathered here today to mourn the loss of our ridiculously attractive friend, Fireman Cam.

While our many tears have not yet dried, and the words “This is Nikki 2.0” are ringing loudly in our ears, I want to remind everyone of something:

In his most difficult moment, Fireman Cam did us proud. He did us all so very proud.

After his shocking rejection by one G. Love, our Bachie fave could've moon-walked out of there like he didn't have a care in the world. He could've gotten angry and accused Georgia of not spending enough solo time with him (*cough* like Rhys *cough*). He could've played the "I didn't like her either" card.

But he didn't do any of that.

Instead, he walked out with the Bachie Queen into the rain, wielding an umbrella fit for effing Mary Poppins. He cuddled her and reassured her. He proceeded to tell her, "thanks for the adventure, it's been an absolute pleasure getting to know you". THEN he explained how "great" the remaining guys were and - correct me if I'm wrong - I think he even teared up a bit.

Once he was done proving that he is the world's best dude, HE BLOODY WALKED HER BACK INSIDE UNDER THE UMBRELLA SO SHE WOULDN'T GET HER HAIR WET.

EXCUSE ME??!?!?!? I'M SORRY???? JUST... WOT?!?!?!?!


Okay, I've calmed down now. I'm borderline freaking out over that killer 'pivot then stroll off into the distance' manoeuvre Cam bloody nailed - but I'm still calm.

Bachie fans, it was from this moment we knew Fireman Cam is a stand-up guy. He is like a sugary donut. Or a nice hot bath. Or a pair of fluffy socks. Or anything else that makes you breathe deeply and go "ah, the world is good. Especially when it comes to stripping firemen with full heads of hair".

Because you actually see what a person is like when they're faced with rejection.

And Cam? He's a good one. He's a really good one.
