When Jessica Brody was left standing without a rose at the end of last night’s Bachelor rose ceremony, she put her head in her hands and her eyes welled up with tears.
She entered the show to find a connection, and that was exactly what she got – but it wasn’t with bachie Matt Agnew.

The 30-year-old make-up artist told Mamamia that throughout her week in the mansion, she made lots of close friends.
Yeah, even with some of the ‘old girls’.
The show seems intent on pushing the ‘old girls’ vs ‘new girls’ divide, but Jessica (a ‘new girl’) didn’t think it was as bad as it’s come across on screen.
“Obviously there’s hours and hours and hours that we’re being filmed over multiple days and it gets all montaged into an hour episode so you don’t see the ins and outs of everything, and it doesn’t seem quite as intense when it’s spread out over a few days compared to all crammed into one episode,” she said.
“[The ‘old girls’] had been in the house for a week when we came in, so they had already formed their friendships and even though they didn’t have much time with Matt before we came in, they had already formed their bonds.
“A week in the Bachie mansion is like a month in real time… It was actually more comfortable than I expected, to be honest. I thought going in that there would be more of a divide. I integrated in quite quickly, I really clicked with Abbie in the house and Vakoo. I want to be friends with everyone, I’m one of those kinds of people.”

I went on The Bachelor to find love and I did. I found love with 27 women who challenge the constructs of beauty both internally and externally. Although I didn’t receive a rose last night, I am so grateful for this experience and for the bonds I’ve made. I wouldn’t change a thing and I wish Matt all the luck on his journey to find the one. ???? thank you so much to everyone who has reached out with love and support. It doesn’t go unnoticed ❤️❤️
