Their love has been out in the open for less than a week, but reality television’s latest fairytale couple Alex Nation and Richie Strahan (we’re still deciding between ‘Alchie’ and ‘Richex’ as a coule name) have wasted no time in letting the world know just how truly, madly and deeply in love with one another they are through a series of Instagram posts.
The latest, as you can imagine, is as “aww”-inducing as it is sliiiightly nauseating.
Posting a black and white image of himself cuddling up with his 24-year-old lady love, who is planting a kiss on his cheek, WA’s Strahan captioned the image, “Moments like this”.
CUTE. Or so you’d think.
Within moments of posting the image, countless negative – and some just plain disgusting – comments about Strahan choosing Nation over WA runner-up Nikki Gogan began to surface, proving the country is still well and truly divided over his decision.
One commenter referred to Strahan as “AUSTRALIAS [sic] BIGGEST DUMBARSE” before labelling him as “dopey” and Nation “the slut”. Wow.
