He described the experience as "really painful and tough," in an interview with US Weekly. 

He said it was difficult to, ''act like [they were] just meeting each other, and falling in love,'' when they were actually breaking up.

However, he only had good things to say about the stars of the show. 

"Those six people were amazing to me." 

"They were fantastic... It was really ultimately a great experience of how people can treat you really well, and you still do your job even though you're sort of dying inside."
