Bellmore-raised Peter Izzo, the Florida pizza-shop owner competing on the current season of "The Bachelorette," is headed back to the Sunshine State.

On Tuesday’s third episode of season 18, star Michelle Young, 28, sent Jamie Skaar home early over trust issues. Later at the Rose Ceremony, she proceeded to eliminate Izzo, 26, now of Port St. Joe, Florida, along with Mollique Johnson, LT Murray IV and Spencer Williams.

Izzo had initiated some drama during the episode's first group date, a military-themed athletic exercise, again having words with Will Urena as he did in the Oct. 26 episode. In this case, after Urena bested Izzo, receiving a "Top Gun"-style jacket, Izzo threw the garment into the pool. "I was hurt beyond words," Urena said in an insert, adding, "It meant that ultimately through any obstacle that Michelle and I go through in life, I'm going to be there to overcome that, and Peter had to ruin it."
