Sam Wood Slammed For Dumping Heather With The 'Friendzone'
Sam Wood has been slammed after dumping Heather Maltman on The Bachelor after home visits.
After thinking all season that she was a shoe-in to win the show, and Sam's heart, Sam threw a curveball at us - he friendzoned her.
He is now dubbed "Australia's most hated man", and although he admitted the tag stings, he said he wouldn't change his decision, claiming he has been true to his heart the whole way through.
I AM NEVER WATCHING AGAIN! And by never I mean see you on Wednesday. @TheBachelorAU— Chrissie Swan (@ChrissieSwan) September 10, 2015
So we're left with Sneezy, Blondie and the intruder. Is that right? #TheBachelorAU— lehmo (@lehmo23) September 10, 2015
My wife is devastated! How could Sam do this to her (my wife). #TheBachelorAU— lehmo (@lehmo23) September 10, 2015
“I don’t feel like I’ve done anything wrong,” he told News Corp Australia.
“I followed my heart the whole way through and the decisions I’ve made were absolutely the right decisions. My decision (to send Maltman home) was one of those occasions where it was really a no win for anyone, but it had to be done.”
Although he has admitted that watching the elimination back on Thursday night was "horrible".
“It was hard at the time, then reliving it last night was just horrible,” said Wood.
“I understand that so many people have fallen in love with Heather because she’s such an incredible girl, so it wasn’t a terribly popular decision.”
But he said that he's in love with the woman he chose on the show, and would like to catch up with Heather - with his mystery lady's permission, of course...
“I would obviously never do anything to jeopardise my relationship, but if all of us were friends and it was all amicable then I would love to sit down with Heather and make sure she’s okay and see what she’s up to now,” he said.
“I am absolutely in love with her and I have no qualms in saying it,” he stated. “I can’t wait for the show to be over and our next stage to begin.”
All we can say is... Heather for The Bachelorette!
