Who is Luke McLeod from Bachelor in Paradise?

Bachelorette 2018 favourite Luke McLeod is BACK on our screens, and no, not as the Bachelor 2018 (unfortunately), but to partake in the inaugural Bachelor in Paradise 2018 down under.  After gracing the television every week to win the heart of Sophie Monk last year on The Bachelorette, McLeod – who was a front runner – was roseless and left the Bachelor mansion by week seven.

The 33-year-old from New South Wales recently opened up to NW magazine, telling them that despite his elimination from the Bachelorette, him and ‘ex’ Monk are have recently been in contact. But his Bachie connections don’t end there.

I know buddy. I missed you too.

It’s a bloody small world, because the ‘business culture consultant’ and winner of The Bachelor 2017 and current girlfriend of beloved Matty J, Laura Byrne, actually used to date. Yep. They saw each other for a few months before deciding they were better off as friends.

In his Bachie profile on Channel Ten – yes, we still stalk them – his hobbies include “surfing, playing music, meditation, yoga, reading and writing.”
