Hunter Haag had to say her goodbyes after being eliminated from Bachelor in Paradise. 

The Bachelor Nation star also shared a post to commemorate her experience on the show. 

In her post, Hunter chose to find the positives in rejection. 

She was rejected by The Bachelorette Season 19 star Johnny DePhillipo when he switched his interest to Victoria Fuller seemingly last minute. 

Hunter thought she had a secure enough connection to receive Johnny’s rose, however, Victoria pulled Johnny aside before the rose ceremony for a flirty chat and make-out session.

Johnny then gave his rose to Victoria, giving Hunter the boot. 

Hunter Haag says ‘rejection is redirection’ 

Hunter took to Instagram to share her first post after being eliminated. 

In the post, Hunter shared three photos posing in colorful attire on the island with costars Genevieve Parisi and Serene Russell. 

Hunter wrote, “WOO that’ll do it, there is nothing more humbling than last minute rejection on national television (which…no comment on that lmfao).” 

Hunter continued by sharing that she’s thankful for her brief time in paradise and the time she got to spend with her best friends. 

She also shared she “will be grateful for the growth I will experience from putting myself out there *again* and being as vulnerable as possible. Rejection is redirection.”

The Bachelor Nation beauty also teased that she’s on the market for a man that will look at her in the same adoring way she looks at her friend and costar Genevieve.

Hunter’s post was met with encouraging comments from Bachelor Nation stars.

The Bachelorette Season 17 star Brendan Quinn commented, ‘You did great Huntsy!” 

Jill Chin, who survived the first BIP rose ceremony by accepting a rose from Romeo Alexander, expressed her love for Hunter and her confidence that amazing things are in Hunter’s future. Jill also exclaimed, “JUSTICE FOR MY BABY!!!”
