Pot plant references serve as tribute for Jarrod Woodgate

He may not have been the fan-favourite to win Sophie Monk’s heart. 

But Bachelorette reject Jarrod Woodgate received his fair share of sympathy after being brutally dumped on the season finale of The Bachelorette this week.

Fans flocked to social media to share a tribute to the quirky runner-up, urging fans to ‘put out their plants’ in honour of the fallen contestant- a tribute to this season’s infamous pot plant urination prank.

While some viewers used the hashtag #PutYourPlantsOutForJarrod, others went so far as to upload pictures of house plants in the wake of Jarrod’s elimination. 

Earlier this season, Jarrod made headlines after he attempted to win Sophie’s heart by gifting Sophie with a pot plant. 

While Sophie’s seeds sprouted in no time, Jarrod’s had no such luck- leading him to question whether Blake and Ryan had urinated on his plant as a form of sabotage in the competition.

While his plant did eventually grow, it was not enough to save Jarrod from elimination at the last hurdle. 

When Jarrod appeared on The Kyle And Jackie O Show on Friday this week to discuss his ill-fated romance, he couldn’t help but admit he enjoyed seeing pot plant tributes emerge following the finale.

‘I’ve seen a couple of pot plants between the hotel and studio 10 so I’m actually likeing a few of them so I might have to take a few of them home’.

After being dumped by Sophie on Thursday night, Jarrod couldn’t help but shed a sea of tears.

He avoided eye contact with Sophie, sighing as he admitted: ‘Wow. I didn’t know what to think, coming into today, but I didn’t expect that.’

Composing himself, he sniffled and thanked Sophie for their short-lived romance.

‘Every moment we had together, all the memories and the journey that we’ve done and… ..no regrets whatsoever in any of this. You’ve just helped me become a better person in this whole journey, and… I thank you for that,’ he said.
