Reality bites! The Bachelor’s Locky Gilbert, 30, shockingly eliminated THREE contestants after a very dramatic cocktail party at the mansion on Wednesday night’s episode
The three women looked to be fighting back tears as host Osher Gunsberg came into the mansion after Locky had handed out the roses.
The eliminations occurred after a particularly intense cocktail party, which saw plenty of drama from the other girls.
Sad: Locky sent home Georgie Glass, Leilani Vakaahi, and Marlaina McPhillips
Areeba had made a plan to bail-up Locky alongside her two friends in the house, Juliette and Kristina.
However, it didn’t go to plan after Juliette secretly handed Locky a love note – which left the other two girls feeling betrayed.
During a tense confrontation, Areeba said: If anything, you used us, Juliette. And it makes me feel sad. I feel used.’

Juliette pleaded ignorance saying she didn’t believe this was how it would be interpreted by the two other girls.
‘I’m thinking that maybe it’s best that we don’t even hang out or talk, because if that’s what’s gonna happen and that’s how you’re gonna betray us.’
She then stormed off. Elsewhere, Bachelor frontrunner Bella Varelis intercepted Locky in order to get some precious time with him.

A number of the other girls were furious as she already had a rose going into the ceremony.
Locky admitted he was making a beeline for her with the pair sharing a passionate kiss while away from the group.
A number of viewers seemed less-than-impressed over the eliminations.
Tense: Kristina was equally annoyed at Juliette following the love note scandal
‘That was an extraordinarily underwhelming episode,’ one viewer wrote.
Another added: ‘It’s all about the drama, sorry girls you didn’t make the cut.’
While a third fan joked about the show being a meat market.
‘Sadly, I caught a glimpse of The Bachelor tonight. It was a meat market. I can’t believe in 2020 this show exists.
‘Surely everyone believes women deserve better.’
