If anyone ever suggests using ABC’s The Bachelor to find true love, punch them and walk away.

In news that would only be considered shocking by the dumbest person you know, The Bachelor: London Calling’s Matt Grant and Shayne Lamas have called off their engagement. The ex-couple released a statement saying that, “We tried hard to make it work but we realized that we were both heading in different directions. We truly care about each other and will remain close friends.”

Right, like she hasn’t already deleted his number from her iPhone.

Of course, true love could still be in the stars for The Bachelorette’s self-centred DeAnna Pappas and her beau, snowboarder Jesse Csincsak. That is until he takes her to the planetarium and proves that the universe doesn’t revolve around her.
