Georgia Love sent him packing in this year’s The Bachelorette, but a week before the final Courtney Dober has revealed why he held back during the show.
'The truth is, at the single date when I gave the time to Tommy… he was my roommate, he's someone who's been in the army and hasn't been in love for 10 years or had a girlfriend,' the former TV presenter told Mamamia.
'I'd come off the back of the single date and then the group date which I planned ... I had the boys calling me 'Georgia hog.''
'The same thing with Ryan. They were both my roommates ... it definitely backfired and I came off looking like I didn't like her. Which was a shame.'
As for his eviction, Dober, 30, said he wansn’t happy with how he was prortrayed.
'The way it comes back, she talks and talks and talks and I'm sitting there like a bloody stunned mullet. What about my responses!' he fumed,’ he told Popsugar.
'Because it went back and forward, she'd speak, I'd speak, she'd speak, I'd speak... and it's kind of disappointing that you don't see any of that.'
