"I'm shocked. In that moment I felt crushed. I was gobsmacked," Cass Wood admitted.

"He told me not to tell anyone," Brooke confessed.
"I protected him for that reason. It ate at me. The secret just kills me."

"I don't regret my decision to leave," she said. "Why would I want to be with someone like that. I don't want to waste my time, which is what I think he did to us. It was definitely a shit move being The Bachelor."
