Last night on The Bachelorette, Jarrod's actions with dating Sophie Monk have seen fans label him as a "stage five clinger".
First, he painfully refused to stop changing a car tyre even though the challenged was over, and then he pulled a not-so-keen Sophie away from the group to help him plant seeds (yes, literally).
As it turns out, the intensity we're seeing on TV is nothing new with the 31-year-old revealing his last relationship ended because it became too full on for the woman he was dating.
"I was with my last girlfriend for a year," Jarrod told TV WEEK magazine. "It ended because I was getting too attached. She wasn’t ready to settle down as she was very work-driven."
However, one breakup wasn't enough to put Jarrod off love, in fact, and he's definitely liking what he sees with Sophie.
"The first moment when Sophie and I kissed, that was so cool," he said last week. "I was a kid in a candy store, like, I just thought, 'Oh my God – all your dreams just came true.'"
Though we're sure Jarrod has good intentions, the way he's going about wooing Soph, and his super competitive streak, has the nation a bit worried...
