Robert Graham Finally Reveals Truth About Why He Rejected Sarah Herron

Sarah Herron Robert Graham

The first season of Bachelor in Paradise may have ended on a happy note, but one couple did leave us with a burning question in our minds. Um, after Robert Graham refused to hook up with Sarah Herron in the fantasy suite, all we want to know is: WHY wouldn't he get physical with her?!?

No, seriously ... WHY? I know during the finale, he indicated that he simply wanted to take things slow with her, blah, blah, blah. But since he apparently never relayed that message to Sarah before their overnight date, she woke up the next morning feeling sad, rejected, and basically downright embarrassed about trying to get it on with a dude who didn't seem interested.


Well, now Rob has set the record straight and given us an answer. Wanna hear his excuse for why he didn't take things with Sarah to the next level?

He reportedly said, "I was hesitant to even go into the fantasy suite because I didn't want to put her in a situation where she was uncomfortable, and I wasn't quite ready. It wasn't the right time or place for me yet."

Um, excuse me? He wasn't ready? I'm sorry, for a minute there, I thought we were reading a line from one of Sean Lowe's old interviews.

And I don't mean any disrespect to Sean at all. At least he was open and honest about the fact that he didn't want to have sex with a woman he'd only known for a few weeks. Robert, on the other hand, never mentioned one single word to Sarah about wanting to save himself for ... whatever, so I'm still not buying that he was ever really into her in the first place.

I hate to say it, but something tells me Rob was holding out for there being some sort of cash prize at the end of Bachelor in Paradise. He figured he'd stick things out with Sarah for as long as he could.

If he had truly wanted to form a lasting relationship with her, he would've said something like, "Sorry, babe, but I want to take things a little more on the slow side instead of jumping right into bed because I respect you so much." 

At least if he'd given her some sort of explanation, she wouldn't have been the least bit put off by him not being all over her, and it could've saved her quite a few tears the next day.

If Rob really is being sincere, however, maybe his experience with Sarah will teach him to be more straightforward with the next chick he dates. The last thing he needs is to get a reputation as a dude who leads women on, then pushes them away in the next breath.

Do you believe Rob's excuse?
