Pascal Wallace was brutally kicked off Thursday night’s episode of The Bachelorette after sisters Elly and Becky Miles discovered he’d been bad-mouthing them.
And while it may seem his remarks led to his shock exit, an insider has revealed what actually happened behind the scenes.
‘Pascal couldn’t run his business. He spoke to producers and asked them how they wanted to play it out,’ a well-placed source told Daily Mail Australia.

‘His contract at WB said he had 30 minutes to run his physio clinics, but he was given 10 minutes, barely even enough time to pay his employees,’ they added.
According to the source, Pascal told producers he ‘was missing his work and didn’t feel a connection’ to either Elly or Becky and felt it was best to leave.
Producers were reportedly so unhappy with his decision – after James ‘Harry’ Harris’ also quit the show to be with his children – he was played out to be a villain.

‘It was all set up by producers, they asked him to dob all the people who had been secretly smoking around the mansion as a way of causing drama,’ the source added.
‘It was boring – all but one or two guys were actually interested in either of the girls. They needed something exciting to happen.’
Following the episode, Pascal, who manages six sports and disability physio clinics across Sydney, posted a series of videos to his Instagram account revealing his version of events.
Pascal explained how he was portrayed on the show was not ‘who he is as a person’.
‘I feel like I need to defend my position, it’s not how I feel about the girls and the way I am going to be portrayed on national television is not who I am as a person,’ he began.
‘The comment Aggie [Guardiani] said I made about the girls not being hot enough simply just didn’t happen’.

During the episode, the sisters confronted Pascal at the cocktail party after Aggie, 30, revealed he had been speaking badly of them.
But Pascal denied their concerns, telling them: ‘I have said none of these comments. You are basing this on hearsay.’
Unfortunately for Pascal, neither Becky or Elly, 25, believed him, and thought the CEO was ‘lying through his teeth’.
‘I had chatted to the producers about wanting to leave and get back to my business,’ he said. ‘And, I wasn’t really feeling it with Elly.’
