He may have claimed to be the “Geppetto” of Bachelor In Paradise Australia and gone into the rose ceremony confident that one of three women would keep him on the island, but after just one day, Canadian Daniel Maguire has been sent packing from the show.
In a moment that has made her Australia’s latest feminist hero, Laurina chose to give her rose to a complete stranger named ‘American Jared’ instead of the man she described as one who “gives her the creeps”.
“Towards the end of the cocktail party, Daniel sits there and he looks at me and says the most slimy, chauvinistic, derogatory comment… I realised this guy isn’t having a healthy affect on the environment here,” she said.

But the complete annihilation of Daniel’s ego didn’t stop there: within hours of the show going to air, some of the remaining Bachelor In Paradise contestants began roasting the 32-year-old (who has appeared on a season of The Bachelorette and two seasons of Bachelor In Paradise in the US) on Instagram.
Tara – who has become one half of the most unlikely but equally adorable island couples – meme’d herself reacting to Daniel describing the Aussie women as “his puppets”.
Jake also joined in on the action, sharing an image of him and fellow contestant Sam Cochrane reacting to any and every word that escaped the cocky Canadian's mouth.
