Luke Stone had quite the brutal sendoff during this week’s Bachelor in Paradise–but it may not have been as bad as we thought.
Bachelor in Paradise proved to be rather disappointing for Luke Stone. But what made it worse was the manner in which he went home. After offering his rose to Bri Barnes and being rejected, the awkward moment dragged on as Chris Harrison asked if anyone wanted to take Luke’s rose.
An extremely painful and awkward silence later, Harrison looks over to Luke S. and says he has to head home. It was pretty horrible to watch, and it felt even worse to see him walk away from the beach so defeated.
However, it turns out things may not have actually played out that way, according to Luke S.’ rants on Twitter and Instagram. He claims that the moment where Harrison asks if anyone wants to take Luke’s rose was the magic of some very mean editing.
Yikes, Bachelor in Paradise, that’s a pretty harsh way to edit someone’s exit. If this is indeed what happened, was it necessary?
Luke also posted a video clip of the moment on Instagram explaining what went down and what changes were made to that particular scene. If you watch closely, you can see how the video cuts from Harrison to the contestants. Not cool, not cool at all.
Suffice to say, he’s pissed and hasn’t been able to let it go since the episode aired.
And just when we thought Luke S. had calmed down a little, he took to Twitter once again to express his disappointment in Chris Harrison and Bachelor in Paradise.
Fans been expressing their support for Luke S. in the comments, while some are telling him to get over it. Me, personally? I’m not sure how I feel about the editing, it’s definitely a messed up thing to do, especially for dramatic purposes. But this is reality television we’re talking about, so are complaints even allowed?
