SHOCK EXIT: The Bachelor's Jimmy Nicholson stunned as unexpected contestant quits the show

Who will say goodbye to the Bachie?

By Laura Masia
The women in The Bachelor Australia mansion are all looking for love. But this week, one of the singles realises that pilot Jimmy Nicholson isn't her Prince Charming after all and, sensationally, decides to quit the show.
Which contestant will decide the pilot isn't for her and take off from the mansion? While we can't reveal her identity just yet, the bachelorette spoke to TV WEEK about her decision.
"When I first met Jimmy, I didn't feel the instant spark I was hoping to," she says.
"But after speaking with him, I could see that he was really nice-natured and made me feel calm. From that, I wanted to maintain an open mind and heart to get to know him."

However, after spending almost six weeks in the mansion and getting to know Jimmy, she began to feel that he, and the show, weren't for her.
"I genuinely came on the show for love and I wanted to give him a chance, because sometimes I can be really quick to write people off," she shares with TV WEEK.
"But we weren't connecting in the way I knew we should. When things didn't progress between us, I didn't want to waste my time anymore. I just wanted to get on with life."

Taking Jimmy aside at a cocktail party, she told him she was leaving the mansion. At first, he was surprised.
"I was a little confused by her decision to leave, as it was all quite sudden," Jimmy, 31, explains.
"But while her decision came as a bit of a shock, I was at the stage where I'd begun to form stronger connections with some of the other women. It's always going to be hard seeing women leave the mansion, but I feel this was the best outcome for the both of us."
Who will it be? Tune in to find out this week!
The Bachelor Australia airs Wednesday and Thursday, 7:30pm, on Network 10.
