Let’s be honest. We’ve all done it. That cheeky late-night, low-level Facebook stalk of your favourite actress, model or, perhaps, Bachelor contestant.
Before you know it, before common sense can intervene, you’ve gone ahead and clicked ‘Add friend’, buoyed by blind faith that this popular, famous person will take one glimpse at your profile picture and immediately see your potential as a new member of their squad.
Well, they don’t. Not The Bachelor contestants anyway. And it seems they’ve had enough of people trying.
Alex has recently turned her Facebook privacy settings to ‘total fan fortress’, preventing anyone from even sending her a request.
Seriously, the button isn’t even there.
There is one small loophole.
That button will magically reappear if you happen to be cool enough to have a mutual friend with the 24-year-old venue manager.
Alex is happy to accept Richie's roses...
