There were four new intruders who arrived at the mansion during Wednesday night's episode of The Bachelorette.

But original contestant Jarrod has still managed to remain a major talking point, as he continues to go above and beyond in every circumstance, to impress the stunning Sophie Monk.

Now one of the most recent eliminated contestants, Hayden, says Jarrod's enthusiasm to win is so extreme that he's beyond stage-five clinger level.

"If there is a stage past five, he’s at it for the cling department, he’s just next level desperado," the 29-year-old told Nova 100 FM's Chrissie, Sam & Browny show on Thursday morning.

"Mate we all got a healthy dose of the Jarrod desperation," he added.

From his grape crushing initiative to pot planting activities with Sophie, 31-year-old vineyard manager Jarrod has strived to stand out from the crowd as soon as he entered the mansion.

But despite what any other contestants or audiences say, the blond insists he's not a "stage-five clinger" at all.

"I'm far from a stage-five clinger," he has told OK! magazine.

"'I don't think anything I've done is stalker-worthy at all. All I've done is make sure I'm on Sophie's radar."

Viewers will be in for another treat on Thursday night, with promos for the episode revealing Jarrod will confront the other bachelors after his pot plant fails to grow.
