As if the knowledge that he did not win Sophie Monk’s heart wasn’t heartbreaking enough, The Bachelorette contestant Jarrod was dealt another devastating blow on the night the finale aired.
Sophie, Stu and Jarrod were all placed in the same hotel in Sydney overnight ahead of non-stop press on Friday.
Are you starting to recoil at just how awkward that is yet? Your ex and the new love of their life staying just metres from you.
In an interview with Kyle and Jackie O on Friday, Stu and Sophie explained that Jarrod had been put in a hotel room across the hall from them.
Please brace yourself for the next shred of intel, because it gets even more cringe-worthy.
“[Jarrod] texted me at one point and said ‘I can hear you,’” Stu explained.
“Stu wanted to go see him!” Sophie added.
Speaking to marie claire the morning after his elimination, runner-up Jarrod said he was still heartbroken after his split from Sophie.
"As soon as filming finished I went back to Melbourne and hung out with family and friends. To this day, I still have feelings for Sophie. I will for a long time, she'll always have a place in my heart,” he explained.
In the meantime, Jarrod will have to make do with his bromace with Apollo.
