Not one, not two, but four of Georgia Love’s suitors on The Bachelorette were turned loose last night—including rivals and fan favourites Sam Johnston and Rhys Chilton. It was a stunning rebuke from the 29-year-old former newsreader, who used her two-on-one date with Sam and Rhys to suss out, once and for all, how they felt about her.
The answer? They… didn’t. “Rhys handed me a silver platter full of reasons he wasn’t there to find love,” Love tells WHO. “Then Sam brought up the fact he wanted to head back overseas and perhaps get into TV presenting. It became so clear that [they] weren’t there for me at all … They were both wasting my time.”
Love says she “absolutely felt betrayed,” adding that her decision to axe Matthew Dunne and Todd Jesson at the rose ceremony was because “we’re at top 10. There were a handful of guys I genuinely liked and could picture a future with. I wanted more time with them.”
While Love says she has no rose regrets, she hints at an emotionally explosive shocker to come. “One ceremony in particular was extremely hard for me. I made the call, probably earlier than I otherwise would have, for my own sanity and his peace of mind.”
