There was only one problem. (Apart from the whole “on live national television” part).
The people were unhappy about the ring Sam Wood gave Snezana Markoski on The Bachelor Finale.
Nay, the people were OUTRAGED about the ring Sam Wood gave Snezana Markoski on The Bachelor Finale.

Quickly dubbed “The Cheezel Ring”, Sam’s jewelry choice was torn apart on social media (although, in his defence, Snez seemed pretty happy with it).
Today, speaking to Nova 100’s Chrissie, Sam and Browny, Sam Wood has finally weighed in on Ringgate (and the $50,000 engagement ring he purchased as The Cheezel’s replacement).
“I copped a fair bit of flak for the ring that I gave her on the show,” he said.
Watch Sam and Snez talk to Dan and Maz about his decision to give her the ring on the show.
“It got called the Cheezel. There were a few comments on social media when I gave her the engagement ring saying, ‘Oh thank god, she now gets to take off the Cheezel.'”
“I think we’ve got it right,” he says of the new ring.
We tend to agree.
RIP, Cheezel Ring. Your reign was short-lived.
