Thomas Perras got two chances at love on Bachelor In Paradise, but when it came down to making a commitment to Rachael Gouvignon he bolted. 

In a chat earlier this week, Rachael admitted to Be she felt like Thomas was reading of a “script” when he broke her heart and “wasn’t genuine”.

Fellow Bachie rose-eating contestant Sasha Zhuravlyova also insisted he was an actor.

Thomas has cleared up those rumours and responded to claims he was acting on the show in an exclusive chat with Be.

The 32-year-old confirmed he is an actor.

“I have worked as an actor and model since 2010,” he admitted.

But insisted he came to Paradise to “find love”.

According to Thomas, if he was acting he “would have stayed to the very end”.

As for Rachael, Thomas insisted she was “really great” but felt like her energy changed from “playful and fun to very, very serious very quickly”. Hmmm, interesting.

Well, we guess there you have it folks. Thomas is an actor but promises he wasn’t acting on the show.

Bachelor In Paradise continues on Sunday at 7.30pm on Ten.
