After being accused of dating Ali just for “fame”, Grant has defended himself by saying if that was the case, he would never have chosen the one girl on the island who wasn’t famous. Charming.
“If I was trying to chase fame by dating someone, I wouldn’t have dated the girl who hasn’t been on TV for years,” he told Daily Mail.
Ali, 31, appeared on the first season of The Bachelor back in 2013, and has kept a relatively low profile ever since.
Meanwhile, Grant, 29, appeared on the 2016 season of the US Bachelorette.
“I’ve actually spoken to Ali since and she was like, ‘I should’ve listened to you. You warned me.’ And I was like, ‘Yup, Grant just wants to be famous,'” Leah said.
“I feel really sorry for her – I don’t think she deserved to have her heart broken.”
Initially it was Leah, 25, who took an interest in Grant, but the two went their separate ways after just one date, and then Grant moved onto Ali.
