The bachelor in space reality show is officially over even before it started.

Japanese billionaire Yusaku Maezawa has pulled out of AbemaTV’s reality show search for a girlfriend to accompany him on a voyage around the moon aboard SpaceX’s Starship vehicle.

Reuters reports Maezawa is “extremely remorseful’ over his decision to end his participation in a program that drew almost 28,000 applicants.
