My heart is utterly broken. 7 weeks ago we were sipping cocktails in Italy. 7 months ago you weren't even sick. How is it possible you're no longer here? Mum, you were my first friend and my best friend, my rock, the one who knew me better than anyone in the world and who supported and backed me through every single thing I did. You were the one I went to for advice, the one I shared every story with and the one who was always there to pick me up. There is so much more I need and want to share with you. I have no idea how to even begin to say goodbye. I love you, Mum, and will continue to every single day. "If there ever comes a day when we can't be together, keep me in your heart. I'll stay there forever."

Georgia Love and Lee Elliot After The Bachelorette:

In her first interview after the end of the season, she revealed some personal things to Elle. Despite her heartbreaking loss, she said she did not regret joining the show and being away from her mother for three months.

“A lot of people have actually asked me if I regret going away for three months to film while my mum was sick. You can look back at any point of your life and go, ‘Well I was away for two months travelling there, a year working there,’ but if I hadn’t gone on The Bachelorette I would haven’t Lee to support me through this, but I also would’ve still been in Tassie, so I would have been further away from my mum. I don’t regret anything that happened.”

In fact, according to her, it was her mother’s condition that prompted her to join The Bachelorette. She used the air time and exposure to raise awareness about the extremely deadly disease.

She also commended Lee for being supportive and helping her get through these tough times. “It’s been incredibly difficult, but it would have been made so much more difficult if Lee hadn’t have been there. So there are silver linings,” she shared.

Lee also organized a special lunch with some of the contestants with tickets for bidding to a limited number of people. The proceeds will go to the Pancare Foundation.

On a lighter note, the two are happy finding each other. Lee shares how “amazing” it was to be able to hang out with his girlfriend without the lights and camera. But they are still getting used to the silence, he said. “You still keep looking over your shoulder to see if they’re there.”
