But rarely do we think about the sacrifices contestants had to make in order to take such a gambled hiatus from real life.
Eliminated participants Janey and Tiffany have revealed to Women’s Day what they gave up in order to appear on the show.
Here’s who’s left… Post continues.
Training administrator Tiffany told the publication she had to pass up a promotion in order to appear on the show.
“When I first left the house I’d actually given up a promotion and my job. To go on the show, I couldn’t take the promotion,” she said.
The 29-year-old went on to reveal how being on the show cost her the job altogether.
“I went on [the show] and lost my job, which meant that for the sake of only being on there for a couple of weeks and not even getting the chance to really know him,” she said.
“When I first left, I felt like I’d been short-changed.”
Tiffany said she found happiness after taking a few months off to pursue travelling.
It’s one of the worst feelings but it passes… Post continues.
Children’s entertainer Janey similarly shared how difficult it was to accept the personal sacrifices made for one shot at love.
“That’s the part that’s disappointing, you put your whole life on hold, you start to think of all the possibilities, what could happen,” she said.
Janey went on to say getting swept up in it all was one of her favourite traits.
