The Bachelorette runner-up Michael Turnbull is in hot water with Sam Frost, after he made an insensitive comment claiming that he and Sam were texting behind her boyfriend Sasha’s back.
Michael appeared on Sunday night’s episode of Fox Sports’ Shootout and was interviewed by presenter Scott Jamieson.
‘So you and Sam Frost are texting behind Sasha’s back?’ the Western Sydney Wanderers player is quoted as jokingly asking Michael, who apparently joked back: ‘Yeah, well I’m not supposed to mention that on camera am I!’
Sam, who picked Sasha over Michael in the series finale, was obviously upset by the comment and posted online: ‘Excuse me? Whether it’s said in jest or not, suggesting I’m sneaking around my partner’s back is offensive and disrespectful to both Sasha and myself. Get a grip Turnbull.’
