Bachelorette fans were shocked to learn that Brady Toops and Britt Nilsson ended their romance shortly after stepping away from the cameras – despite the “going strong” updates that ABC aired each week.

“Everything on paper was perfect,” Nilsson, who her chance at finding love this season to Kaitlyn Bristowe in the premiere, told PEOPLE of why their relationship only lasted a few weeks. “But we didn’t have that connection I was looking for. That was a hard conclusion.”

In an Instagram post Tuesday, Toops, 33, teased that the truth behind their breakup had more to do with their lack of a cute couple’s name like Bennifer or Brangelina.

“We had no real celebrity couple mashup name.. Britt(y), Brad(itt),” the musician captioned a shot of the exes walking embracing on a beach. “See, there was almost no chance. This was probably the beginning of the end when we realized this”

Also on his tongue-in-cheek list? The 27-year-old waitress’s fear of heights and the fact that their are no dramatic rose ceremonies in the real world.
