It was the confession that shocked a nation: Sam telling Georgia that he wasn’t on The Bachelorette to find love, but instead to find a life in the spotlight.
(We all know this is probably the case for most of the people that appear on the show, but geez Sam, you’re not supposed to SAY IT OUT LOUD.)
But before you jump to conclusions about how Sam probably shouldn’t have let his career dreams slip, there’s something he wants you to know.
Listen to the latest episode of Bach Chat:
“What you saw was a bit out of context,” he told Mamamia of his shock exit from the competition.
“They only showed a bit of that chat. I think everyone went in with the same mindset as me, we’re all open to love and if you go on the show and really like the girl, then of course you would pursue that.
"But I don't think [any of the guys] have gone in there thinking if they don'd fall in love, they're going to be absolutely heartbroken. That's not a realistic approach to the show."
Sam also revealed that he never thought he'd be able to "fall in love on a TV show" and that he had such limited time with Georgia it was nearly impossible to form a connection.
