‘He [Bryce] went over to her, got on top of her and kissed her in a pretty smart-a ** e aggressive way … you don’t really want to see that stuff, ‘said Patrick.
Bryce, 31, had sarcastically crowned Beck, 27, ‘the queen’ of this year’s MAFS season before planting an unwanted kiss on her cheek.
Patrick said Bryce had to “ internalize ” his behavior and actions in the series and claimed there was no leg to blame for the montage.
‘This was filmed last year and it felt like reliving the moment every time you saw it on TV. All the emotions that you felt at that moment come back. It’s a really crazy life we’re living now, ‘added Patrick.

While some fan accounts, such as Bachiegossip, have a screenshot of what Patrick seemed to be smiling during the tense moment Bryce approached Beck, his behavior changed dramatically on screen when Bryce made the unwanted advance.
Patrick was the first man to express his disgust at Bryce’s action, yelling at his opponent, “Bryce, how dare you do that, mate!”
He added, pointing to a crying Beck, “Mate, that was disgusting.”
