Speaking on the We Met at Acme podcast, Greg said that it was “a really tough decision to leave.”

“It was one of the hardest things I’ve ever had to, you know, choose for myself. It was tough, especially after hearing everyone saying like, ‘Oh, I was acting or I ran away when it got too serious,’” he said. “I mean, for me, I’m like, ‘What if she said I love you back, guys?’ Like, I couldn’t leave then, you know, I would have known then [that] this is gonna be my wife, I wouldn’t have left.”

He went on, saying that the season as a whole “felt a little too scripted and felt like, ‘Alright, we need to play by [the rules]’ — I had no problem going into, like, the fantasy suite and there being two other guys there. I wasn’t looking for the show to end. I wasn’t at all. I wanted us to communicate on a mutual level in those moments.”

After his exit, Greg was rumored to be one of the front runners again for his own Bachelor season.

It ultimately went to Clayton Echard.

Katie is currently linked to this other Bachelor star.
