With revelations that a few contestants a) had already hooked up, or b) were less-than-single, the very first season of Bachelor In Paradise Australia is shaping up to be dramatic in all the wrong ways.
But there was one question this week that had viewers on the edge of their seats (well, as much as one can be while watching hot people get day-drunk and very, very sunburnt): would Florence give her rose to Jake Ellis or Davey Lloyd?
After a last-minute decision to keep Jake – the guy she had definitely, maybe been ghosted by after a brief fling – Davey was sent packing. It was all very… sad.
But a few days on, it seems 29-year-old Florence – who appeared in Matty J’s season of The Bachelor – is regretting her decision.
In a long post shared on Instagram alongside a snap of her and Davey from the show, Florence says watching the episode back was “quite tough”.
@bachelorfeedau just uploaded this extremely cute photo and I couldn’t resist reposting. Watching this episode was quite tough for me, especially as I saw lots of things that I didn’t see in the moment when I was there. Things that were said, things that were done, things that Davey said, things that Jake said… all sorts of stuff that I missed. Please understand that when you’re in the middle of it all things are less obvious than when you’re watching us from the couch. Making decisions is SO HARD in an environment like that, especially under pressure and I can only hope that I was doing the right thing. Nevertheless I broke my own heart a little when I sent this absolutely amazing guy home and I’d like to say a big thank you to @davey_lloyd for the time we spent together and the memories that were made – like the plastic flowers in this photo from the bach in paradise art department that he stole and gave to me at the cocktail party (I had to put them back in the bushes after). Lol bless you. You make my heart smile. You’re the best and you have a heart of gold. Nothing but ♥️ for you you little whirlwind. ????
