This is, hands down, the best 'Bachelorette' goodbye speech in TV history.

Last week America’s Bachelorette JoJo Fletcher farewelled Daniel, the Canadian.

No seriously, that is his job. Being Canadian.


Daniel — whose biggest fear before going on the show was that his future potential life partner might embarrass him in a restaurant (that's actually what he said) — was pretty philosophical about his exit, delivering what might be the best goodbye speech in the show's 12-season history. And that's really saying something.

"I just wasn't the type of guy for her, and fair enough," he told the cameras on his final stroll down the driveway.

"She was obviously going for personality and obviously my personality is f*cked. If this was based solely on looks, there's a good chance I would still be here.

"I know I'm a great catch... but there's millions of people in the world and the chances of her falling for me are — I've got a better chance of getting struck by lightning while, you know, shaving my face."

For those who don't watch the show, Daniel made a memorable debut in episode one when he got completely pissed, stripped down to his undies and insisted on poking the other contestants' belly buttons.

"Everyone's like, 'Why did you keep Daniel?!' He was comedic relief for me that night," the Bachelorette told E! News at the time.

"I was like, this guy has to be different when he's not just hammered. I just wanted to give him the benefit of the doubt."

Well, JoJo got one thing right — he sure is different.
