Luke 'really confused' by Bachelorette booting

Olivia Morris

Australia was shocked when Sophie Monk sent Manly-based hunk Luke McLeod packing on The Bachelorette last night.

But it appears Luke has now hinted he was sent home to make way for frontrunner Stu Laundy.

He admitted to The Daily Telegraph he was “confused” by Sophie’s choice and thought he might’ve been given the boot as to not distract her affections for the 44-year-old publican.

“There was obviously guys who came into the house and I noticed almost straight away that there was a connection with one of them, and maybe she just wanted to remove someone out of the picture to not complicate things too much so she could focus on developing a relationship with that person,” the 33-year-old told the outlet.

But even now the business consultant is still trying to figure out what went wrong.

“I was just really confused. I felt numb. And I was just trying to retrace my steps and think, ‘how did I screw things up?’” Luke told the publication.

There’s clearly no hard feelings though as just this morning while on Nova FM’s Fitzy and Wippa, Luke referred to Stu as a “legend” and a “really good bloke”.

Lads standing by the lads. We love it.
