‘I don’t want to use the term ghosted…’ Bachelor in Paradise star Connor Obrochta offers an awkward response when asked if he dumped Shannon Baff 24 hours after leaving the show

Bachelor in Paradise star Connor Obrochta swept Shannon Baff off her feet when he asked her to leave Fiji early so they could be together.

But Shannon has since claimed that she was ‘ghosted’ by Connor just 24 hours later when he flew back to America. 

Speaking to Now To Love on Thursday, five months after filming the show, the U.S. intruder offered a rather awkward response when asked about his behaviour.

‘I don’t want to use the term “ghosted”,’ he said. ‘I think it’s a very one-sided term, it’s a very hurtful term.’

Connor, 26, explained that producers had promised him and Shannon, 25, ‘a couple of days with each other outside of Paradise’ that never materialised.

‘We didn’t have that time [together off set] and they kind of shipped us out on the first flight in the morning,’ he added.

After flying home to their different countries, Connor admitted that he didn’t feel any motivation to see Shannon again.

He said vaguely: ‘I’m not the type of person to just get on a flight for whatever type of connection we had, it was a pretty big connection, but it just wasn’t what I needed it to be. So it was difficult for me.’

Connor added that he had some contact with Shannon via Facetime and that they even planned to meet up in Hawaii, but the holiday ‘just didn’t happen’.

Shannon confirmed her split from Connor on Wednesday.

She told The Courier-Mail: ‘A week and a half [after filming the show] he went to LA and I heard nothing else.

Connor had asked Shannon to leave Paradise early with him on Tuesday’s episode so they could begin their relationship in the ‘real world’.  

He added: 'And moving forward it has just been a tough time, and get out and see each other because of where we left off. I'm not the type of person to just get on a flight for whatever type of connection we had, it was a pretty big connection, but it just wasn't what I needed it to be'

Reflecting on Connor’s decision to ‘ghost’ her within a matter of days, she said: ‘I was really invested. I was 100 per cent in. 

‘And so I was pretty hurt watching [Tuesday’s] episode because I genuinely felt it with Connor.

‘I was open to moving to the U.S. but afterwards, when we were planning to meet up in Hawaii, I was the one organising everything and I didn’t feel like it was getting reciprocated.’ 

Happier times: Connor had asked Shannon to leave Paradise early with him on Tuesday night to begin their relationship in the 'real world' beyond the cameras
