While most of us were excited by the news that former The Bachelorette Australia contestant Richie Strahan was set to be the new bachelor, it seems not everyone was keen on the news – even one of the girls who applied to be on the show!
Kyle & Jackie O’s entertainment reporter met a contestant from the new season, Laura, at an industry lunch this week, and cornered her for an on-the-record chat after “a few glasses of champagne”.
When she was asked if she found Richie attractive, she didn’t hold back.
“Completely no, that’s a no from me,” she said, saying she had no idea she’d be competing for the attentions of a contestant from a prior season when she signed up. “Oh God no, no way. To be honest, I was hoping for some bloody fresh talent.”
After the audio of the interview had played, the radio hosts made the assumption that the very fact Laura is talking to the media means she’s perhaps out of contention as a winner of the show, which is yet to start airing.
“I’m assuming she’s obviously been given the flick, because they’re not allowed out of the house until they are gone,” Kyle said.
