ABTV Loves The Bachelor Presents: Listen To Your Heart Weekly

If you watched Listen to your Heart last night- you saw Brandon and Julia had the opportunity to go on a date together when host Chris Harrison forced the couples to switch things up. And by the end of their date, they had chosen to go forward with each other, sending home their partners Sheridan Reed and Savannah McKinley. And with that, Brandon and Julia ride off into the distance of love and happiness…yeah, not so fast. 

At the end of the episode Brandon & Julia were inDEED eliminated from the competition- karma much? Upon her exit Julia expressed regret in letting her partner Sheridan go and echoes those same sentiments in an interview with ET’s Lauren Zima, she says “He had the one quality that I’ve looked for in a man, which is someone who knows who they are. I find that so attractive.  I’ve always said I want someone who reminds me of my father as far as the kind of heart they have, and Sheridan definitely does.” 

Julia also claims she hasn’t been in contact with Sheridan since the airing of the second episode and states that it’s been “super painful” for her. Even tweeting this out last night. “Walking away from an amazing guy for the thrill of the player.” And to be honest- we couldn’t agree more. But how is Sheridan feeling after this wild episode?

This is my first time watching all of this back with a bird’s eye view. It has finally all come into focus for me. My emotions, confusion, and stress clouded my judgement on many occasions and I didn’t see things clearly. That is my fault. • In two weeks, I explored potential connections with two very different guys. As much as I thought I was trying to follow my heart, ultimately it failed me. And I am sorry @sheridanreed – I failed you. • What I’ll treasure most was meeting 22 musicians all with the shared passion to perform. There was magic in that mansion that I wish you got to see more of, and that’s what I’m taking with me. • I can’t wait to see what dreams come true for the cast of #ListentoYourHeart ♥️

A post shared by Julia Rae (@itsjuliarae) on

Well, he’s been pretty quiet about his feelings, but did go to Instagram today in a post stating he’s “not the type of person to hold onto something…”   He goes on to address his thoughts regarding Julia’s actions on the show. “@itsjuliarae made some mistakes- but we all do. We’re human and that’s apart of life.” He goes on to say “I’m not going to hold it against her and I don’t want you to either. I appreciate your support but don’t want it to be at the expense of another. So please recognize there’s been enough pain to go around without adding to it.” 

This may be in response to Julia’s claims of death threats. In an interview with ET’s Lauren Zima she states her painful portrayal on Listen to your heart has led to these threats and her crying every hour over mistakes she’s made. She adds,“This has been the first day that I have not cried every hour,” Julia confesses. “It is hard for me enough to watch it back and then to get the amount of hate I am getting.  I can understand people laughing and questioning my decisions, but what I don’t understand are people telling me to jump off a bridge or I deserve sh*t on me,” she says. “No one deserves that, especially people who made mistakes on a reality show when they were under a high pressure, stressful situation.”

“The only thing that was ever wrong with me was my belief that something was wrong with me.” ⠀ – @glennondoyle ⠀ ⠀ I first want to express how appreciative I am for the opportunity I had to be on @listentoyourheartabc and what an incredible experience it was. I think anything that gives us the opportunity to learn something, even if it’s challenging, is worthwhile. ⠀ ⠀ That being said, if you’ve followed me for a while or are just getting to know me through the show, I think you’ll understand that I’m not the type of person to hold onto something or have ill will. You saw that I processed things the only way I know how—music. I was able to take what I was feeling and going through and turn it into something more, hopefully that some of you can relate to. I debated for a long time whether or not to release “Coming Back”, the song I wrote about what I was going through in my last episode on the show, and ultimately decided to release it today. It’s a tough situation that’s not uncommon, and if a single person can get something out of the song, it’s worth it.⠀ ⠀ @itsjuliarae made some mistakes, but we all do. We’re human and that’s part of life. She’s trying to learn and grow from the experience – we all are.  It was an overwhelming situation we were in and it was not easy by any means, for anyone. I’m not going to hold it against her and I don’t want you to either. I appreciate your support but don’t want it to be at the expense of another. So please recognize there’s been enough pain to go around without adding to it. ⠀ ⠀ I really do appreciate all of you more than you could ever know, you make it all worthwhile, and the support and love you’ve shown me has been astounding. I’m doing okay, and more importantly, I know I’m enough. Sending lots of love 🧡🙏

Sheridan also dropped a single last night after the show, entitled “Coming Back”- a song he wrote about what he was going through on his last episode. The release timing and lyrics lead me to believe this love story might not be over just yet.
