When the moment came on Bachelor In Paradise for couples to commit, Megan Marx wasn’t able to do so with island love Jake Ellis.

Showing doubts in her romance with Jake on the penultimate episode of the show on Sunday night, Megan clearly wasn’t able to shake them.

As the pair were discussing their future outside of Paradise it was clear Jake’s reassurance he would be faithful to Megan just wasn’t enough.

“I think Jake really wanted to hear from me that I wanted to commit and really give it a good, hard go,” the 29-year-old said in a piece to camera. “I just don’t… I don’t feel like we’re ready. Like, we’re right before the commitment ceremony and we don’t know what we’re doing. That doesn’t inspire confidence in me.”

Megan then broke the heartbreaking news to Jake she didn’t want to go through with the commitment ceremony.

“It’s not the right time,” she said. “I don’t think that we should do the commitment ceremony. I think this is going to be the best thing.”

Clearly upset and taken aback, Jake wasn’t happy with Megan’s decision to leave.

“My biggest regret is not going to the commitment ceremony, you know, running scared or feeling like we need to wait a bit only realise we passed the chance and that we missed an opportunity,” he told Megan.

Leaving Jake behind, Megan departed Paradise leaving the 31-year-old heartbroken.
