After declaring he wanted to 'make love' to Mishel, and would need more time to woo her, it turns out Steve has zero physical attraction to her - and he told the single mother-of-two in the most brutal way.

Sitting on a Sydney beach after what Mishel had described as 'such a great day', a bikini-clad Mishel glowed as she rested her hand on Steve's knee.
She was so happy that she'd helped her husband overcome his fear of water after a childhood boating accident left him traumatised.
Still with a smile on his own face, he began, 'I think it’s about time we have a chinwag about where we are in the relationship. I think she deserves to know the truth about how I’ve been feeling.
'I want somebody in my life forever, but the situation is, the attraction side of it for me it’s just not there. I wanna be honest with you.'
Shame he wasn't honest all those weeks ago.
'I’m so confused,' Mishel said, perplexed. 'It is a slap in the face. I just literally helped him overcome his fear.'
But the worst was yet to come.
Just in case the beautiful Mishel didn't hear it the first time, Steve told her exactly what it is about his wife that makes her unattractive to him.
'Obviously there has to be attraction in our relationship going forward. I’m not attracted to you physically... Whether there’s a spark from my end or not… I can’t force something if it’s not there.'
Mishel, shaken, became emotional when talking to producers.
'We’ve been here for six weeks now. Any decent person would have told you by now that they’re not into you.'
