The Bachelorette: Awkward moment with Shannon Karaka wasn’t shown on TV

The awkward moment you didn’t see on The Bachelorette: Shannon Karaka had to return to the mansion after getting dumped by Becky Miles as producers ‘needed him for re-shoots’

Fans of The Bachelorette were left confused earlier this week when paparazzi photos surfaced of Shannon Karaka returning to the mansion after being eliminated.

While some viewers believed this was proof Becky Miles had changed her mind about sending him home, it turns out this wasn’t actually the case.

The 30-year-old salesman did indeed return with his bags to the mansion, but it wasn’t to resume his place in the competition.

Mystery solved: Fans of The Bachelorette were left confused earlier this week when paparazzi photos surfaced of Shannon Karaka (pictured) returning to the mansion after being eliminated. Now, it’s been revealed the truth of the situation was a lot more awkward

As reported by gossip website The Wash on Friday, the reality of the situation was actually quite awkward for Shannon.

After being dumped by Becky during hometown visits, he was asked to come back to the mansion for re-shoots.

A source claimed: ‘Shannon went back to the mansion, packed up his stuff and left [after hometowns]. He then got a call from a producer saying he needed to come back as they had to re-shoot some scenes.

‘So not only was he dumped, he then had to go back and relive it a second time while discussing his exit again for interviews.’

The insider added that ‘his return had nothing to do with Becky, who probably had no idea about it’.

Photos of Shannon rocking up at the Bachelorette mansion in a taxi had been published online on Thursday morning – just hours before viewers watched Becky, 30, tearfully give him his marching orders during hometown visits.

But a source close to Shannon told Daily Mail Australia at the time that the pictures were not, in fact, proof of a surprise comeback. 

‘He made it close to the finale but wasn’t asked to come back. It’s completely not true,’ the insider said.

They added that while Becky had ‘strong feelings for Shannon’, she ended things with him on the show and didn’t change her mind.
