Then he broke the bro code by swooping in for a chat with Bachelorette Angie Kent during a cocktail party after the boys agreed there'd be no swooping – for the sake of the team and all that.
WATCH: The rumour about Angie that we all hope isn't true.
Now, contestant Jamie Doran has put his foot in it again, attempting to insert himself into an intimate conversation Angie was having with Ryan 'Aussie Dog Guy' Anderson.
In possibly one of the most awkward scenes in this season so far, Jamie tried a new tactic at tonight's cocktail party.
Rather than the traditional, "Excuse me (tap-tap-tap on the shoulder), Angie, can we go for a chat?", the firefighter decided he would simply attempt to join the convo, making for The Bachelorette's first three-way... of sorts.
"Guys, this is going to sound likea bit of a curveball," he started as he sauntered up to the pair – who, btw, were looking pretty darn cosy as a twosome.
"I actually want to sit in withboth of you. If that's okay."
"It sounds a bit creepy..." the no-bullshit babe told him.
"Is that a little bit creepy?" he replied.
Yes, Jamie. Yes, it is a very little bit creepy and please stop.
But he didn't. Le sigh.
"I just want to kind of explore,like, some things about Yvie. Saying Ryan is the perfect guyfor you."
No. Stop. Abort, back away slowly.
"I didn't get time with Yvie," he complained of the group date earlier in the evening, when Angie's best Yvie Jones took some of the boys for the ultimate bachelorette party with their leading lady.
"But like, she is your soul mate.For me, I know whatshe thinks of youand what you think of herand it was really important for meto touch base with her. And I didn't get to do that. Like, I was quite upset."
Before things could get any more awkward (as if that was even possible), Ryan stepped in and (politely) cut him off.
"Jamie? I need this time too..."
And we were all just thankful that is was over almost as quickly as it started.
"Jamie is...He's genuinely hereto win Angie's heart,but he is his own worst enemy," Ryan later commented in a piece to camera.
Ryan, meanwhile, is carving himself out a place as a serious contender in the fight to win Angie's heart. Angie and Ryan — who boasts more than 35,000 followers on social media — first connected on Instagram after formerGogglebox Australiastar Ange stumbled upon his account,Aussiedogguy.
(If you are obsessed with dogs, you should definitely give him a follow.)
"It started as common interest in the rescue-dog scene," the island caretaker from Queensland toldTV Week. "We followed each other on Instagram and there was some banter."
