She admits to her faults throughout the experiment.
"I took a turn for the worse, I started to lose hope and I lost myself. I made it almost impossible for you to love me. This was when I knew something had to change. I had to change.
"I needed to become the best version of myself possible. I could sense that you were ready to leave, so I made it my absolute priority to fight for us. And I refuse to go down without a fight. But despite all the effort, all the fight, all the determination, you checked out on us. On me."
Connie continues, acknowledging it wasn't easy.
"So, I had to make the hardest decision of my life - to quit and leave, or continue my journey and see it out till the end. I made a commitment not only to you, but to myself and to this experiment and I needed to honour myself and give this journey absolutely all of me.
"But, I had to put myself first for the first time in a long time. I stand by my decision, and although I didn't find love with you I found something so much more important, something so valuable. I found that I am brave, I am strong, I am confident and I am worthy.
"Ultimately, I found myself. Before the experiment, I was a shy and insecure girl, and now standing in front of you is a confident and proud woman who now understands her worth in this world. The only love and approval I need is from myself. I become the love I was searching for. Thank you, Jonny, for this I will be forever grateful.
"This may be the end our journey, but it's only the beginning of mine."
While the series is focused on the drama (and eventual love story) between the couples, we haven't seen such a raw, honest and clear transformation quite like Connie's before. She admits her faults, acknowledges with respect the role Jonny played and ultimately leaves with an inevitable understanding of what she needs to be loved in the future.
Connie, we applaud you.
