After last night’s shock decision on The Bachelor finale, where Bachie Richie Strahan dumped fan favourite Nikki Gogan for single mum Alex Nation, people were NOT happy!

Fans took to social media to express their anger at Richie, with one fan writing: “How does it feel being the most hated man in Australia?” in a comment on his Instagram page.

Some have even labelled him as “more hated than Blake Garvey” which is a HUGE call!!!

Former Bachie Blake was dubbed “Australia’s most hated man” in 2014 after he proposed to Sam Frost on the finale, before dumping her and dating the show’s second runner-up Louise Pillidge.

We can see how this is on par with that… because Nikki was PERFECT, and the poor girl was so confident that Richie felt for her what she felt for him. 🙁 🙁 🙁

“I feel it’s me. Every ounce of me says it’s me,” she said, moments before hearing Richie’s decision.

Then, Richie broke hearts around Australia. First he gave her the schpeel about how she’s a wonderful woman blah blah blah, but then…

“Going on this adventure, my family gave me some advice,” he said. “And that advice was to follow my heart. And, Nikki, I really hope you understand but my heart is with Alex.”

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! And the backlash began…
