You’d be forgiven for thinking The Bachelorette was mostly about two guys who sort of hate each other and make funny jokes behind the other’s back, while some girl talks to random guys in the background.
But despite the constant squabbling between Sam and Rhys, who were both sent packing in a dramatic double date last night, Sam says he’s actually “pretty good mates” with the 29-year-old model/entrepreneur.
Listen to the latest episode of Bach Chat:
“He slept in the bunk bed next to me. He was good, he never snored or anything,” Sam told Mamamia of his behind-the-scenes friendship with Rhys.
"He's just a bit different. He could handle a bit of a hard time. I don't think I said anything too malicious and I didn't upset him personally. We're still good mates and we talk all the time."
This...just changes everything.
Although he blamed editing for making their relationship look more hostile than it was in real life, Sam says everything we saw of him on the show was "definitely" his true self.
