What John Henry Spurlock Said About Split

Kat Izzo and John Henry were one of the two couples who left Season 9 of Bachelor In Paradise engaged. Eliza Isichei and Aaron Bryant were the others. Aven Jones and Kylee Russell left Paradise in a relationship but not engaged.

According to him, his career as a underwater welding diver played a large role in the end of the relationship. He said that his job wasn’t “relationship friendly” with the constant travel.

However, he decided to give it a shot with Kat but ultimately began to doubt their relationship. He did defend his ex by saying she tried everything she could to make the relationship work.

In fact, he had nothing negative to say about the Season 9 villain, even calling her a great catch.

Kat Izzo Tells Her Side

Kat Izzo’s view of the end of her engagement to John Henry Spurlock isn’t quite the same. She chose the She’s All Bach podcast to break her silence and tell her side of the split.

A Bachelor Nation fan shared a recap of the podcast interview on Reddit. Kat dished some about her time on Season 27 of The Bachelor. According to Kat, the connection between Zach Shallcross and his future fiance Kaity Biggar was apparent to everyone.

After her elimination from The Bachelor, Kat went to Bachelor In Paradise to find love. After dalliances with a few of the men, she thought she found lasting love with John Henry Spurlock. They got engaged during the season finale, but announced their split after the finale aired on TV.

She said on the podcast that the couple had actually been broken up before the finale aired. That’s surprising to fans because John Henry posted a photo of them on social media as if they were still engaged.

Kat Izzo received a lot of backlash from viewers for her behavior on BIP. She said on the podcast that, in her opinion, the hate did play a role in the end of the relationship.

Fans React To The New Tea

Kat Izzo got major online hate from BIP viewers when the season was airing. She feuded with several co-stars on the beach, including Olivia Lewis.

However, her podcast appearance seemed to change many opinions of her. The comments on the Reddit recap were surprisingly positive. Check them out:

  • I guess I always thought they broke up immediately after Paradise. I didn’t realize they stayed together until the finale aired.
  • This is gut wrenching. I feel soooo bad for her. Imagine going through all of that and then having no support from family or friends, “fiancé” shutting off from you when you moved for him and then just having the whole “world” hate you.
  • I listened to it. He really broke her heart. That must have been a lot for her to go through in combination with all the social media hate. All while working nights and studying for boards!
  • Am I reading this correctly: he dumped her and then asked her to post a photo together to pretend they were still together at the finale, when he was the one who didn’t want to be with her?
  • Omg he dumped her over the phone and refused to talk in person when she had moved to Asheville for him? That’s so rough

There are two sides to every story. Do you believe Kat’s version or John Henry’s? Sound off in the comments.
