Bachelor In Paradise star Shannon Baff and American intruder Connor Orochta shocked fans when they decided to leave the television series to work on their relationship in the real world. Now, Shannon has confirmed that she and Connor have split.
Speaking to The Courier-Mail, Shannon admitted that after leaving Fiji the sweet-talking Connor ghosted her and returned home to LA.
"A week and a half (after the show) he went to LA and I heard nothing else," the 26-year-old tells.
Connor had asked Shannon to leave Paradise early with him on Tuesday night to begin their relationship in the 'real world' beyond the cameras.
"I was really invested. I was 100 per cent in. And so I was pretty hurt watching [Tuesday’s] episode because I genuinely felt it with Connor," Shannon reflected.
"I was open to moving to the US but afterwards when we were planning to meet up in Hawaii I was the one organising everything and I didn’t feel like it was getting reciprocated," she added.
Connor spoke to Mamamia about the couple's split: “I don’t want to use the word ghosted because that sounds like I just cut her out of my life and didn’t want anything to do with her. Like I said, throughout this short condensed process, you need a set up rate in terms of growing with that person and understanding about that person, because again – me being in America, and her being in Australia – if I don’t know anything about her, in terms of what I am looking for."
