By now, we’ve returned our wedding presents for Tony Pieper and Blakeley Jones (it was his and hers Carhart jackets, FYI) and have disbanded our “life for Bachelor Nation couples is completely unfair” poetry group.

As you may recall, the beautiful cocktail waitress and feelings-rich lumber salesman found love in the hopeless place that is Bachelor Pad 3. Turns out, BP3 winner Nick Peterson also had some thoughts (sidebar: we would gladly publish your book of haikus, Nick) about the couple’s split.

Nick told OK! Mag exclusively, "I'm shocked! They're two of my favorite people from the house and I honestly thought they would be [the] ones to make it!” While we’re still surprised Nick is capable of expressing such extreme emotions, we are touched that he too felt the earthquake that shattered our world.

Nick went on to say,"They're amazing people and I know they wanted to make it work. But sometimes it just isn't meant to be. I wish them both the best and I'm sure they'll both find someone soon."

No word yet on whether he spent any of his $250K on tissues.
