Farmer Wants A Wife contestant Karlana Alexander sensationally quit the show on Sunday, after Harry Robertson confronted her about her interest in a crew member.
And speaking to The Daily Telegraph’s Confidential afterwards, the 24-year-old set the record straight on claims she wanted to pursue a production employee.
The brunette explained how she told her co-stars in a group chat about a crew member that was ‘really nice’ to her when she was upset, and that by the time it reached Harry, it had turned into a bizarre rumour.

‘We were just talking about the crew and having girl chat and I happened to say that one of the crew was really nice to me and was there for me when I was a bit upset – that was all,’ Karlana told Confidential.
‘There was nothing more to it, I didn’t even know the crew member’s name!’
After her shock exit, Karlana struck up a romance with another farmer who failed to make it on screen, Jack Beaton.

Despite hitting it off, the pair eventually went their separate ways.
While attending a country ball with the other women and farmers on Sunday’s episode, Harry pulled Karlana aside for a private conversation.
‘I’ve heard some things from the other girls. They have told me that you were keen to get back to Sydney to catch up with a crew member and I just wanted to know if it’s true or not,’ the 29-year-old asked.

A stunned Karlana admitted: ‘I’m keen to get back home to be honest… Well maybe I’ve mentioned there was a crew member that I got along with but I get along with multiple crew members.’
‘If you’re not in this situation to get to know me and that side of it… Did you come here to find a crew member or to find a farmer?’ he asked.
Karlana broke down in tears and told Harry she couldn’t believe he would question her intentions.
‘Are you seriously asking me that?’ she said before adding: ‘I don’t want to be here anymore.’

Karlana then stormed off and made the decision to quit the show.
‘I didn’t want to upset anyone and I’m trying my best to make sure no one is upset. I care about you. You surprised me everyday,’ Harry said before she left.
Ashleigh Kidner then broke down in tears and said she felt like ‘it was all her fault’ because she told Harry what Karlana had said.
‘The only thing I ever want to be in life is honest. I’ve had a lot of people not be honest to me so honesty is huge with me,’ Ashleigh said.
Farmer Wants A Wife continues Monday at 7.30pm on Channel Seven
