Ivan, who had previously tried to score a kiss from Ali, decided to give it another crack while Bill was occupied in the other room. “This might be the last time that I get to speak to you — I know Bill’s in the kitchen — but I’d love to know if there’s a spark … I’d love to kiss you,” Ivan pleaded.
To which Ali very awkwardly replied: “I don’t think we should do that, while Bill’s in there,” she told him awkwardly. While he was visibly distraught fans are also speculating that Ivan might have “flipped the bird,” according to News.
Later in the episode, Ali decided to choose Bill, sparking an extremely awkward exit from Ivan.
Needless to say, he didn’t take the bad news well, telling producers in an angry rant that Ali had made a “massive mistake”.
“She’s gonna learn. I’m not running back if she goes through all the boys and then thinks she’s gonna come back. Pffft. No f***in’ way.”
The following day Ivan atoned for his bitter remarks with a written apology on Instagram.
“I had some time to think and I Just wanted to take a moment to say thank you so much to everyone that has supported me through this journey. It was such an awesome experience and a pleasure to get to know all the boys and Ali.
“I had laughs, cry’s and every emotion under the sun and some mega cringe moments...movements that I was happy with and moments that I was unhappy with and Unfortunately we didn’t “blend” together but I learnt a lot from everything. Super grateful for the opportunity and I really hope I at least made a few people smile from my experience. Hope I find the right girl eventually.”
