As Peter and Madison talked about their sex struggles, ultimatums and differences, a couple of flies decided to interfere. The conversation was too heavy, even for them. This week on part one of the two-night finale for this season of 'The Bachelor', two very grave dates in the middle of arid land were hijacked by some buzzing flies that just wouldn't quit.

The show attracted flies after the two iconic "concerned kangaroos" made a cameo during Madison's ultimatum — and no one could keep calm. "I cannot take you seriously while you're swatting flies," tweeted a fan, noting that Madison continued to flail her hands everywhere as she spoke about how Peter and she were different and that though she loved him, she had to go.

Awkward, right? "That point in #TheBachelor finale when you can't tell if Peter is crying or swatting at Australian flies..." tweeted one viewer. 

"At least the flies are having a good time #TheBachelor," tweeted a third as another said, "Those flies getting ready to crawl all over Madison/Peter’s BS #TheBachelor."

Another quipped, "The flies are swarming over this dead corpse of a relationship."

Some fans speculated why the flies were so attracted to Peter's scar from the old golf cart. "I think those flies are attracted to Peter's decaying forehead #TheBachelor," one said while another thought they must have been staged, "The producers work hard but those Australian flies work harder #thebachelor."

Madison walked away from Peter by the end of this night, but we know that she does come back later claiming she regrets it. "I think about love and I think about how much I want you, and I want this so badly, but I think when you want something so badly, I think a lot of times you can't see clearly," she continued, "As much as we want this, I don't know that we can give each other what we need."

She said, "Being a great warrior and being a good fighter is knowing when to surrender. And I do think that love still wins, and I do still think love still conquers all because I'm willing to walk away so that you can get what you came here to find." She added, "That night and everything that's happened since that night, I think just a lot of things have been brought more into focus... like, how different we are, when it comes to marriage, when it comes to faith, when it comes to lifestyle."

She had been quite certain that telling the four-time windmill sex champ not to have sex with the two other women in the Fantasy Suite would work out, but we all knew what was going to happen. As much as we love Madison, this not-ultimatum ultimatum didn't quite work out for her and clearly, everyone knew it — especially the wildlife.
