The Bachelor Nation was heartbroken when Becca Kufrin eliminated Wills Reid on the latest episode of The Bachelorette.
Wills was left devastated after Kufrin made her “toughest decision” yet — when she decided to go with Jason Tartick and sent Reid home.
“I’m absolutely wrecked right now. I thought she was going to pick me. That’s why this is shell-shocking,” Wills said after his elimination. “I thought she cared about me the way I cared about her. I wasn’t ready to go home, not like this.”
“Yes [I was in love with her],” Wills tells ET. “I told her that in Richmond, that I was falling in love with her… I don’t say things unless I mean it.”
“There was a couple moments that weren’t aired, but we had a couple familiar similarities, and epiphany moments, especially one in Vegas, and from that moment on, I just knew, like, I was falling hard for this girl,” he added.
Wills Reid will be joining the upcoming fifth season of Bachelor in Paradise, which premieres early next month.
