Carpenter Johann, 27, was the first one to miss out on a rose from Brooke, and took to Instagram after his exit to write:
"Holy smokes what an experience! I had a hell of a time. What an amazing group of people to meet and what an absolute gem @brooke.blurton is, I wish her all the very best!"
Photographer Beau's time in the mansion was cut short, which the 34-year-old addressed on Instagram after the episode aired.
"Short & sweet, just like Brookie," he penned. "It was an epic experience nonetheless and I'm wishing all those beauties left the best of luck."
"They really went with the Mr confident hey," he added, referring to his edit on the show.
Filmmaker Ritu was the third to go home, and the first woman in the series not to get a rose.
After the 25-year-old's exit from The Bachelorette mansion, Ritu admitted to 10Play that it wasn’t a huge surprise she was going home.
"I said it maybe four or five times at that cocktail party," she said. "I just knew. I knew it in my guts, I knew it in my soul."
Software sales executive Jess, 30, was one of four participants who were sent home in a bombshell rose ceremony, where four new people were brought in to meet Brooke.
"What a journey this has been. I am not only surprised, but I am also proud of myself for having the courage to put myself out there and get out of my comfort zone," she said on Instagram after her exit.
"Although things did not work out between @brooke.blurton and I, I wish her happiness nonetheless and hope she does find love.
"I thankfully made some wonderful friends along the way. If I don't laugh, I think I will cry, just like I did on national television. Farewell for now but not forever."
Vet receptionist Emily, 25, was also collateral damage of the rose ceremony sweep and took to Instagram to share her experience after being sent home.
"I’m so grateful for the opportunity to be a part of this year’s #BacheloretteAU," she said. "Unfortunately I didn’t find love with Brooke but I did find it with some amazing friends I’ll keep close to me forever."
"Big shout out to @tajefowler for being my no1 gal through this experience, bezzies for life. Wishing Brooke the best of luck."
The 31-year-old metal fabricator was "left roseless" after being sent home from the mansion by Brooke, and took to Instagram after his exit to share details on his "wild ride" on The Bachelorette.
"Pros: Breathed the same air as the stunning @brooke.blurton, what a woman! Met some incredible people, who I hope to stay friends with for a long time. Got out my comfort zone and enjoyed an incredible experience," he said.
"Cons: Still single. Still am terrible with women. Now hate pumpkin," Matt added.
Bec, a 30-year-old charity officer, was also sent packing after the shock quadruple elimination and four intruders entered the mansion.
"So grateful for every single one of these amazing and incredible women. You are everything," she said on Instagram after her exit.
Psychologist Carissa, 30, decided to leave the mansion after she confessed to Brooke that she couldn't fall in love in the environment of The Bachelorette.
"In the end, I did what I felt was right. I was developing close friendships in the house before I’d formed an intimate connection with Brooke," she took to Instagram after her exit to share.
"By the time we had the opportunity it just didn’t feel right to the others who already had feelings for her."
HR consultant Jessica, 28, was one of the four 'intruders' to enter the mansion this season, and she was one of the first among them to be sent home.
Plumber Ryan was at the centre of a 'cheating scandal' that gripped the mansion, where it was revealed the 29-year-old was attracted to another participant, Jamie-Lee.
After a shocked Brooke found out about the situation, Ryan's fate was decided and he was sent home at the rose ceremony.
Steve's time in the mansion came to an end after he didn't receive a rose, but it wasn't exactly a shock exit for the podiatrist.
"I kind of thought my time was up," the 29-year-old told 10Play after his exit.
"I felt where Brooke was with everyone else, compared to where she was with me, it was very surface level still and I feel like that’s all she wanted it to ever be, which is totally, totally fine," he added.
It was an emotional rose ceremony for 23-year-old Taje, who was brought to tears when she said goodbye to Brooke after not receiving a rose.
"It was a cry of relief. I’m so proud," Taje told 10Play after leaving the mansion. "I’m proud to be part of this experience, and that we had that moment together."
"Maybe it wasn’t meant to be that we were together, but I wished her all the best and it was a beautiful moment to me, especially being another First Nations woman,” the youth worker added.
Luca, one of the four intruders to enter the mansion this season, did not receive a rose and was sent home.
Upon leaving the mansion, the 25-year-old told 10Play: "It was a once-in-a-lifetime experience, not many people can say they’ve done it, and it's been really fun."
"I put my heart on the line doing this and I would 100 per cent do it again if the opportunity came up. I enjoyed every minute of it," the P.E Teacher added.
"Getting to know Brooke was super fun, the connections I made with people in the mansion, everything has been really enjoyable. Nothing but thumbs up from me."
After not being able to secure much one-on-one time with Brooke since entering the mansion as an intruder, landscaper Will said his goodbyes after he didn't receive a rose.
"I can be kind of a shy, stand back kind of guy around some people," he explained to 10Play, adding, "around most people when I first meet them."
"That might have stood in the way a little bit for me," the 31-year-old said.
After hometowns, fan-favourite Konrad sadly did not receive a rose from Brooke, ending his time in the Mansion.
But out in the real world, the 31-year-old confirmed to 10Play that he has found love with another Bachelor star, Abbie Chatfield.
"I’m sort of head over heels for Abbie at the minute," the carpenter said, "it’s very early days but it’s a legitimate thing."
"I mean, everything happens for a reason so maybe this is what was meant to be."
She was the last intruder standing this season, but Millie did not receive a rose ahead of hometowns - an outcome that wasn't a total shock for the 22-year-old gym manager.
"By the end, I think we realised that we were both on different paths in terms of - family is hugely important for her and it is important for me as well but, unfortunately, it was a bit of a mismatch in timing," she told 10Play.
She added: "I think also, being the youngest in the room at that point by about five years, I wasn’t surprised that I didn’t receive a rose. But there’s no bad blood or anything like that!"
Another fan-favourite was sent packing after Kurt didn’t receive a rose, where he told 10Play he believed it was because he didn't get enough time with Brooke.
"Everyone else in the house got a single date and I think I needed that time, to share an experience with her and get to know her more because I was quite nervous in front of the camera," he said.
Although, in the end, the 29-year-old sports mentor started to believe his connection with Brooke had moved into more of a friendship territory.
It was an incredibly emotional goodbye as Holly, one of Brooke's strongest connections, was sent home. But, while Holly didn't find love in the mansion, she did find it with fellow contestant Millie.
"We started catching up as friends outside the house and a romance has formed from there," Holly told 10Play.
"In this experience, it’s a roller coaster and you’re forced to make these really strong connections with people to get through… and I’m very much in love with her," the 27-year-old marketing administrator said.
