The Bachelorette's Jamie Doran caused chaos at the cocktail party this week after accusing front-runner Carlin Sterritt of plotting to be next year's Bachelor.
And following his elimination on Thursday night's episode, Jamie is standing by his claims and insists that Carlin isn't on the show for the right reasons.
Speaking on The Reality Bite: Cocktails and Roses podcast, the 39-year-old firefighter said: 'Carlin is a good guy but I know what I heard and I speak the truth.'

Jamie added that several other contestants had heard Carlin make the comment but they chose not to back him up when he broke the news to Angie Kent.
