Sophie breaks down during live interview

IT'S safe to say most fans of The Bachelorette are pretty unhappy with Sophie Monk's shock decision to send home crowd favourite James Trethewie during last night's emotional episode.

Right from the start, James, 31, was expected to make it to at least the top three, and his abrupt dismissal from the mansion was delivered with basically no explanation.

Despite currently hiding out on a Balinese getaway with her best friend, Sophie's still feeling the heat of that backlash today.

In fact, as soon as she picked up the phone for an interview with Kyle and Jackie O, the star burst into tears, revealing that she was "so upset."

"I'm sensitive and I want to keep everyone happy, and I know everyone says James is the perfect guy ... but he's not the perfect guy for me," Sophie sobbed down the line.

She offered up some explanation about her decision, explaining that she "needed a little crazy" in her life, and that conversations between herself and James just hadn't flowed.

Clearly taken aback, her long-time friend Kyle admitted he'd never heard her so upset before.

"It just hurts my feelings," Sophie said. "It's just horrible because I knew it - the chemistry wasn't there ... I've dated that kind of guy before, I just know it wouldn't work out with [James and I]".

The former Bardot singer also pointed out that Australia had fallen in love with James for not only his sweet moments with Sophie - but his endearing behaviour when she wasn't around.

"I don't see what you guys see - I only see the edit when you guys see it [during the episode]," explained Sophie. "I can't choose everyone! I have to choose one person... I can't make everyone happy, I have to make me happy."

Still sobbing, the reality TV star added: "It just hurts my feelings - I feel bad for Australia."

And it's not just fans unhappy with Sophie.

She admitted she'd accidentally posted a spoiler about James' departure after the show aired last night - forgetting that there's a delay in Perth and Brisbane - and had gotten into trouble with producers.

As always, Kyle had the perfect advice for the situation.

"Fly your chosen man over [to Bali] and have sex all afternoon and forget about all this."

The Bachelorette continues tonight at 7.30pm on Channel Ten.
