Luke McLeod is the George Clooney look-alike that Australia fell for on the Bachelorette Australia.
The Manly local spoke to InStyle Australia about last night’s elimination from the show, shedding some light on one of the series’ most unforeseen moments so far!
“There are obviously moments that happen off camera that obviously contribute to making the decision that she did,” McLeod admits.
“I was quite cautious with my emotions while some of the other guys were fairly open, and told her how they really felt about her and I didn’t really get that opportunity.”
The 33-year-old, who is currently single, also confesses that Sophie’s obvious chemistry with Stu Laundy, 44, was a contributing factor in his dwindling relationship with Sophie.
“And then these other guys rock up and you could see that Sophie had a connection with one of the guys and that frustrated me a bit, and Sophie noticed that and picked up on a few things and I think to save heartbreak later on it might be best to say goodbye when we did.”
Luke also revealed that his ex-girlfriend and fellow Bachie alum, Laura Byrne was supportive throughout his time on the show.
“We are really good mates and when we both found out what we had just gone through – it’s worked out amazing for her she’s with an awesome guy and she’s been so supportive of me in the whole process,” he said.
While we’re sad to see Luke (and his abs!) leave the show, there might be a silver lining, he says he's still single and looking for love!
