Does This Prove Apollo Is The Next Bachelor?

Throughout this season of The Bachelorette, we've developed a bit of a crush on young gun Apollo. 

And while he was ceremoniously booted last night, his admission after the show almost makes us like him more. 

The 24-year-old admitted that he was "pretty teary for a while" after losing the race for Sophie Monk's heart. 

How did he get over the heartbreak? 

Apparently the magician is closer to our heart that we realised. 

“I was crushed, I was heartbroken, even when she (Monk) took me outside to talk I was fighting back tears,” he told News.com.au.

Definitely not the ending I'd hoped for, 3-6 years was meant to be my reply for kids but I crumbled.. Sophie is an absolutely amazing woman in every way and I wish her all the happiness I know she'll make the right decision and end up with an awesome partner who'll treat her right. I just want to thank from the bottom of my heart everyone who's supported me through my journey, sorry I havnt been able to get back to people's messages but your support means the world to me, it's been a whirlwind experience full of challenges, life lessons and moments ill never forget. I've learnt so much about my myself and been lucky enough to make some life-long friends in the house. My hearts still open for finding love and I know the right persons out there for me. . . . #bacheloretteau #BacheloretteAU #thebachelorette #bachelor #love #networkten #ten #instadaily #TV #magic #magician #flowers #beautiful #instagood #instalike #music #smile #vintage #date #onesie #photography #opera

“I comfort ate to get over it. Doesn’t everyone?”

Apparently chowing down on "a bunch" of pizzas and reflecting on his time on the Bachelorette and with Sophie helped him heal his heart. 

After his final appearance on the hit TV show aired, Apollo took to instagram to bare his heart. 

"Sophie is an absolutely amazing woman in every way and I wish her all the happiness I know she'll make the right decision and end up with an awesome partner who'll treat her right," he said. 

"I just want to thank from the bottom of my heart everyone who's supported me through my journey, sorry I havn't been able to get back to people's messages but your support means the world to me, it's been a whirlwind experience full of challenges, life lessons and moments i'll never forget.

"I've learnt so much about my myself and been lucky enough to make some life-long friends in the house.

"My heart's still open for finding love and I know the right persons out there for me."

But don't despair, this certainly won't be the last we see of Apollo. 

Aside from plans to release his own music single in the very near future and upping his international magic shows and stunts, there is a good chance he could land the role as the next Bachelor. 

And going by the way that he is speaking, it could even already be signed and sealed. 

“It would work, people have seen me on the show — I guess they’ve seen a snapshot but there’s so much more to me,” he said.

“I’m still looking for love but I’d want to attract the right girls who are in it for the right reasons.

“Nah, I think I’m just going to try and be myself, in every situation."

Curiouser and curiouser....
