Ex-Bachelorette star Jarrod Woodgate says he shouldn’t have signed up for the show because he was suffering from mental health issues at the time – as he reveals his ambition to go on SAS Australia

Jarrod Woodgate has revealed he shouldn’t have signed up for Channel Ten’s The Bachelorette because he had ‘so much going on in his life’.

The 36-year-old placed runner-up on Sophie Monk’s season of The Bachelorette in 2017, before appearing on Bachelor in Paradise the following year.

Jarrod told Daily Mail Australia on Thursday, he was suffering from mental health issues at the time, which stemmed from his time in the army, and he wasn’t ‘clear headed’.

‘If I did the Bachelorette second time around, I would want to be a little more clear headed because I had just had a really good mate in the army pass away prior to that and there was so much going on in my life,’ he explained.

‘I didn’t understand it. It’s taken five years for someone to do a mental assessment.’

Jarrod went on to reveal he would love to appear on SAS Australia because it would ‘help him break down those barriers’.

‘I spent time in the army. I’ve gone through medication and trials and seeked help. SAS Australia would put me in my place, he said.

‘It would assist me with breaking down those barriers to understand more about myself.T hey are not there to destroy you, they are there to assist you. I feel I would gain someone from that as a person.’

Jarrod last year revealed he was taking a break from work to focus on his mental and physical health.

The reality star, who spent 12 years in the army before he was medically discharged, has been diagnosed with PTSD, depression, adjustment disorder and anxiety.

‘Four weeks ago I decided to leave Toms Cap Vineyard [his family’s winery in country Victoria] and move up to Darwin to be with my beautiful girlfriend Sam Royce. I have decided that 2021 is going to be dedicated to focusing on my mental and physical health,’ he wrote on Instagram.

‘As some of you already know, for the last few years since I was medically discharged from the army, I have struggled to cope with everyday life.

‘I have finally got some answers and have been diagnosed with PTSD, depression, anxiety and adjustment disorder, as well as ankle, knee and back injuries.’
