When you watch a show like The Bachelor or The Bachelorette, it’s very easy to follow along and fall in love with people they see on the telly.
We get it – and that’s what the show producers want.
So when a crowd favourite leaves the show, heartbreak ensues. However, what we need to remember is there are real people and real hearts involved in all of this – and no matter how invested you are, you have to remember that.
So after James went home last night, social media went into a frenzy, wanting to express their concern and their love for James.
Sophie called the show this morning and wanted to express how upset she was about letting him go.
She broke down as soon as she spoke to Kyle and Jackie O.
You can’t help but feel sorry for her, because she’s just following her heart, and as she says, ‘she has to pick one person – and she can’t make everyone else happy – she has to make herself happy.’
Good luck to you Sophie, we love you!
