Bachelor in Paradise has been back on screens for just two episodes but its drama is already gripping audiences.

For love ‘villain’ Cat Henesey, who appeared in Nick Cummins’ season, this reached fever pitch when she boldly stormed off set after being snubbed as Richie Strahan’s rose pick.

The commotion came to a head during the first rose ceremony where Cat was confident she would be chosen by the ex-Bachelor.

However, instead of showing his interest via a rose, Richie does the unthinkable and chooses Cat’s ex-love rival Cass Wood to keep around for another week.

“Richie definitely gave me a good indication that he was interested in me, I’m a great girl and I don’t know what Cass could have done to make a better impact than me,” she said following the decision.

When the next singleton Nathan Favro made his choice Brittney W, Cat had had enough, yelling ‘f**k this’ before storming off set and forcing the crew to make a beeline for where she was headed.

This rejection followed Cat’s pre-ceremony bravado, which saw her mark only one other contestant as competition.

“I do feel my connection with Richie is stronger than Rachael Gouvignon,” she said.

To compound the room’s tension, was that the men were in control of the rose ceremony’s picks – and would lead to two female contestants having to leave the show.

Ultimately, three ladies are left standing when Bill Goldsmith prepares to decide which one to give a rose to at episode’s end – and it’s unclear as to whether Cat returns to see him make the choice.
