Bachelorette Fans Were Crushed to See Sweet Geologist Adam Be Rejected by Elly Miles Tonight
Adam Todd left The Bachelorette heartbroken tonight, when Elly Miles decided not to take him to the finale. Fans watching along at home were caught between feeling heartbroken for the favourite and relieved they would one day have a chance to shoot their shot. We cannot stress this enough — Adam deserves love.
Geologist Adam first gained the admiration of the public when he grumbled that Frazer was doing a rubbish job of acting as a gold miner in the annual photoshoot date. He flew under Elly’s radar though, until his comment about his favourite part of himself being his brain struck Elly at the Halloween group date. She chose to take him on her next single date where they connected over bodypaint and Elly’s childhood rock collection and, boy, did they smooch a lot.
But it did feel like the couple were doomed from the start, with Adam always a little shy and awkward, struggling to open up to Elly when it really counted — after their surfing hometown date. Instead of stuttering out something about how he was starting to fall for her, which he had told the cameras, he just said it was “special” that Elly was the first of his romantic interests to meet his sister and brother-in-law. While we suspect Elly knew that he wasn’t withholding for lack of feeling, it seemed to confirm for her that he wasn’t ready for the kind of forever relationship she was looking for.
“Whoever ends up with you, bloody hell, they’re going to be such a lucky person,” Elly told Adam through tears after the rose ceremony.
“It’s OK,” he replied, holding her tightly, before heading into the limo, where he said, “I’m always going to care about Elly — she’s amazing.”
Adam, call me!!! (Or any of the other hot women we presume are in your DMs . . . )
