Sean took his exit with the utmost maturity and now he’s opening up about his dismissal from the show. When asked what went wrong, he replied, “I don’t think anything went wrong necessarily. Me, Arie and Jef are three very different guys. We all have our own great qualities and, I’m sure, we all have a few that aren’t so great. At the end of the day, Emily realized I’m not the one for her and had to make the decision that was best for her. It was hard to accept at the moment, but I’ve come to realize that when I find my wife, she’s not going to have any doubts about whether I’m the one she wants to be with forever.”

When asked if he was blindsided by Emily’s decision, he revealed, “I was absolutely shocked. I didn’t think in a million years that I was going home that night. I was standing at that rose ceremony thinking I was going to marry her.”

The former competitor said that he didn’t understand why it happened in Curacao. He revealed, “It happened so fast. I was confused. It’s like, ‘Sean you didn’t get the rose. Say your goodbyes. Go home.’ I didn’t have much of a chance to say anything. I didn’t get answers. When she walked me out, I was in no state to have a serious conversation. I was seeking closure, some of which I got tonight. It helped that I took extra time off work when I got home and spent time with my family. After a few weeks it hurt less, and I realized she was not the one for me, either. If she was, she wouldn’t have had any doubts about our future.”

He added, “Well, it did take a few weeks to get to that point. I’m not a saint. I created my own closure. The positive reception I’ve gotten from viewers also helped.”
