He’s the George Clooney look-a-like who quickly caught the eye of Bachelorette Sophie Monk.
So it was no surprise Luke McLeod was chosen for a romantic one-on-one date during Wednesday night’s episode of the reality show.
Whilst at first it was fun and games, the date took a serious turn when Luke quizzed Sophie about their chemistry, pointedly asking: ‘Do you feel something here?’
Awkward! Sophie Monk shared an awkward lip lock with Luke McLeod on Wednesday night’s episode of The Bachelorette, before the pair tried again for a more passionate kiss
The 33-year-old added that his question was ‘pretty full-on’ given that the pair had only chatted a few times prior.
However, Sophie replied that she did indeed feel sparks with the hunky ‘business culture consultant’.
‘I did [have feelings] from the beginning,’ Sophie revealed.
‘I cannot flirt!’ Sophie awkwardly presented Luke with a rose after the pair agreed they both feel chemistry with the other
She added: ‘I just felt like you weren’t coming up [to speak] but it wasn’t obnoxious, it wasn’t like you were trying to be so cool.’
Luke replied he was hesitant to chat to Sophie because he was ‘so s**t nervous’.
The blonde beauty then gushed over her date, before presenting him with a rose.
Hesitant: Luke did not immediately kiss Sophie as the pair sat in silence
After accepting the rose, the pair sat awkwardly as Luke hesitated to kiss her.
‘I cannot flirt!’ Sophie was heard saying in a voice-over, adding that she wanted Luke to ‘just kiss me already’.
After sitting quietly, Sophie and Luke then engaged in a very awkward lip lock. However, undeterred, the couple tried again, resulting in a far more passionate smooch.
What’s going on? Sophie was scolding herself for being a bad flirt
‘I’m getting lost in the moment and I’m thinking, ‘Sophie, what are you doing?’ I swore to myself that I wouldn’t kiss every guy that I’m going on a date with. Next minute, whoopsies. Sorry, Dad,’ Sophie joked in another voice-over.
On her last single date, the blonde bombshell indulged in a steamy kiss with vineyard manager Jarrod Woodgate.
