Garvey confirms to Woman’s Day he broke up with Sam Frost two weeks before The Bachelor finale aired.
The interviews form part of a deal organised by celebrity agent Max Markson, which on top of the jilting of Frost is unlikely to win him many fans.
“What … didn’t end (after the taping) was the love I felt for Lou and as much as I tried to file it away, it kept growing,” he said.
“It wasn’t fair to carry on with everything. It wasn’t fair to Sam, and while she didn’t know it, it wasn’t fair to Lou, or myself.
“We had interviews booked, it was about to be announced on television that Sam and I were engaged and I just didn’t feel the romantic love I was supposed to.”
Questioned why he had eliminated Louise from the show he said, “It sounds crazy but I was so unsure at that stage, and she was the one I wanted to hurt the least, so I thought it would be easier.”
Yes Blake. It sounds crazy.
He wrote a 5 page letter to her declaring his affections, which she describes as “one of the most overwhelming things: she had ever experienced.
“My one wish is that I don’t want to just be your first love, I want to be your first, last and only,” he wrote.
On the weekend Sam Frost slammed the pair saying, “I was secretly hoping the rumours weren’t true”.
“It was really disappointing they didn’t come to me first and say: ‘By the way, this has happened’. I think I deserved that,” she said.
Perhaps Garvey can answer questions about whether he was coerced into proposing on the show by producers and clarifying at what point TEN knew the romance was off.
