Ivan’s controlling behaviour has been the main point of controversy surrounding this season of Bachelor in Paradise.
It highlighted a level of perceived danger viewers hadn’t seen on the series before.
Watching Ivan resort to punching walls, threatening other men, and referring to Tenille as “his property”, rang alarm bells across Australia.
And that was just to the viewers at home.
Imagine being on the receiving end of such behaviour, and not even knowing the full extent of it.
Tenille – while aware Ivan was a little clingy, maybe even slightly obsessed with her – told Mamamia she had no idea just how bad it was during her time in Fiji, and describes watching these unseen moments as confronting.
Australia watched on uncomfortably as she tried to tell Ivan he needed to be less possessive and “pull back the reigns a little bit”.
But instead of listening to her, Ivan, 29, playfully tried to hold her hand and kiss her.
