Farmer Wants A Wife's Rob Campbell shocked last week when he sent two women home in an episode, but after careful consideration, he dropped a huge bombshell on his remaining three contestants on Monday night.
The 40-year-old decided he didn't feel a spark with any of the three remaining women and decided to send them all packing.
"I think it is probably best if you head home," he told Meg, Kate and Luce, who were clearly not expecting the blow.
Speaking to the cameras earlier, he said, "This morning a lot of thoughts were running through my head, thinking about the girls and whether there is potential for a future with any of them."
"Unfortunately, you just can't manufacture love and if there is not that spark there is nothing to build on."
After gathering the women into his kitchen, he said, "I don't know if there's…… if I am feeling that lightning bolt connection with any of you, because I do respect you so much I don't want to have you hanging around and you all have lives to get back to, children, jobs.
"It's a very hard decision to make but I think it is probably best if you head home."
Unsurprisingly, the women were shocked with Meg telling the cameras, "Oh for f***'s sake! This was my chance at finding love."
"It was a shock, you know, I knew Rob was pulling himself away from us a little bit, but I didn't expect it to come that quickly," Kate said.
"I did think it was a real chance for me to fall in love with Rob. I was hopeful that we would get some more time together to be able to get to know each other better. But it's obviously not meant to be."
"It'll be a lonely old household tonight," Rob told the cameras. "But I really do think that it was the right decision to make."
Fans on Twitter had mixed emotions with one user writing, "OMG... Rob sending all 3 ladies home??!! Are the producers madly running around behind the scenes rustling up more contestants??? But good on him for being HONEST!"
"Wowwwww I didn’t see that from Rob!" another wrote.
"Oof, to be in the car on the way home from Rob's farm," someone else added. "Imagine the conversation they’re having!"
"Wow okay have fun being single then Rob," one annoyed viewer said.
"At least Rob's not wasting anyone's time!" another wrote.
