The Bachelor farewells Louise

With just three women left last night The Bachelor had a tough decision to make in South Africa.

The Bachelor Blake Garvey said a tearful goodbye to event planner Louise, 26, during the penultimate  rose ceremony in Cape Town, South Africa.

Blake struggled with the decision and even acknowledged he had “fallen for all three ladies”, but eventually  decided his connection with Lisa, 27, and Sam, 25, was much stronger, sending them through to the final rose  ceremony where he will make one of them the ultimate offer of lasting love: a proposal of marriage.

Blake said: “I think Louise and I are great together. I love the energy that she brings, but I have a slight  concern. I feel that I’m not 100 per cent sure that Louise knows me. Just those little things, the intangibles.  Sometimes I get the feeling from Sam and Lisa that they really, really get me. But Louise I’m not absolutely  sure about that.”

Despite trying her best to put those concerns to rest, including declaring her love for him, Louise was still  unsure if Blake felt the same way.

Before the rose ceremony, Louise said: “Blake is definitely someone I can see spending the rest of my life with.  I’ve never felt this way for anyone in my entire life, so receiving a rose tonight means it’s real. And that he  feels the way I feel.”

Blake presented the first rose to Sam and the second to Lisa, leaving Louise without a rose and heading back  home to Australia. Blake spoke with Louise privately after the rose ceremony. He said: “You have been so incredible. In everything  you’ve done, you’ve put a smile on my face. That enthusiasm that you have, that energy, that’s so infectious  and beautiful to be around. I’m going to miss that more than anything. I know you’re going to find love again  soon.” Louise responded with: “I don’t regret absolutely anything and the love that I have for you will last a lifetime.”
