It came after Megan revealed on Sunday night’s episode that she doubted whether Jake could remain faithful to her when they returned to the real world.
After she revealed to him that they shouldn’t progress, a shocked Jake told the blonde beauty: ‘I feel like we’re saying that we’re scared and that we’re not giving it a chance.
‘I don’t know what to say. My biggest regret is not going to the commitment ceremony, you know, running scared or feeling like we need to wait a bit to only realise we passed the chance and that we missed an opportunity.’

On Sunday night’s episode of the show, Megan told Jake she had plans to travel after Bachelor In Paradise wrapped filming, and she was concerned he would be unable to stay faithful during her absence.
‘I’m going away for a couple of months (and) you’ll be back on the Gold Coast,’ she said.
‘You’re going out, you’re hosting events, and you are around a lot of beautiful women all the time. And I’m wanting to know if you’re able to make a commitment and be with me.’
Jake tried to allay Megan’s doubts claiming: ‘ ‘What we have is amazing, and I mean that more than ever. And I can’t fight that I’m falling in love with you.’
Megan then hinted that she may decide to end the relationship during Monday night’s finale.
She bluntly stated: ‘I would say I’m at 90 per cent sure that Jake and I can at least give it a go. The other 10 per cent of me says, “What’s the point?”‘
