Alex and Richie Bachelor In Paradise

"I feel like I shouldn't be watching."

Channel Ten is being slammed by social media for sharing an incredibly raw conversation between Richie Strahan and Alex Nation on Bachelor In Paradise on Wednesday night. 

The intense discussion between the pair has been hyped up over the last few weeks as it was the first time the former couple had seen each other since their breakup in 2017. 

Channel Ten chose to air their full conversation, unedited and uncensored, hinting at the ‘real reason’ they chose to split, but never explicitly revealing the full details. 

During the conversation Alex told Richie:

"I feel like people would have a very big opinion of a woman, being left alone, to do something that involved both of us."

Richie responded:

"Don't beat around the bush Alex, say it. Because you're not gonna like my response. Because we did talk about it. We talked about the whole thing and what you said to me blew my mind... I've had to come to peace with this."

He went on to add:

"We spoke at length about it and I supported you and your decisions."

Some viewers felt they were able to guess what happened between the pair and felt uncomfortable the conversation had been aired in the first place. 

Osher Gunsberg, host of the show, was live-tweeting the episode and ended up defending the airing of the conversation, saying, "Both Richie & Alex were comfortable with it."
