Bachelorette fans furious over continuing plantgate plot

 The Bachelorette’s ‘plantgate’ saga has drawn the ire of fans online.

On Thursday, contestant Jarrod Woodgate continued to interview suspects over the alleged contamination – via urination – of a pot plant he was attempting to grow.

‘I’m over this f**kg pot plant!! Just get over it!!!’ a Twitter user penned in a statement during the episode, furious that the sub-plot continues to get air time.

‘I’m over this f**king pot plant’: The Bachelorette’s ‘plantgate’ saga has drawn the ire of fans online, after Thursday’s episode continued to document Jarrod Woodgate’s ongoing investigation into who urinated in his potted plant

The drama began in an earlier episode of the show, in which Woodgate and Bachelorette Sophie Monk planted seeds in a pot plant.

The contestant has maintained the seeds were planted in a ‘circle of love,’ but began to suspect another cast member urinated in the dish after they failed to sprout.

On Thursday, Woodgate pulled Monk aside to inform her that contrary to his prior concerns, the seeds – which he viewed as a symbol of their love – had begun to grow.

In spite of this, he continued to accuse cast mates Blake Colman and Sam Cochrane of expelling their bladders in the plant – allegedly to sabotage it.

At around 8:.8pm on Thursday evening’s episode, footage was aired that documented Woodgate’s ongoing probe.

‘Did you fertilise the plant? Or do you know someone that fertilised the plant?’ he asked Colman.

Colman appeared to find the line of questioning humorous, informing his accuser that he’d be taking any disparaging information to his grave.

While the footage was being broadcast, users of popular social networking platform ‘Twitter’ began discussing the latest round of investigations.

In another, a viewer wrote: ‘I wish I had the opportunity to pee in Jarrod’s pot plant.’

In a Tweet that could potentially turn the investigation on its head, a user claimed to know who urinated in the plant.

‘Only thing I like about Blake is p**sing in jarrods pot plant,’ they wrote.
