Michelle Andrews and I recap the best parts of Bachelor in Paradise. Post continues…
“I wanted someone that I could say whatever the hell I wanted. That moment she said something really gross – I won’t go into detail – but it was like, it was with a coconut, it was a chopped coconut and what she said about it was literally one of the foulest things I’ve ever heard anyone say but I just laughed and I couldn’t stop laughing and every time I saw her after that, I’d just laugh and that’s sort of where it started.”
In a separate interview with OK! Magazine, Cochrane said he realised he was falling in love with Tara every morning they woke up together.
“It’s hard to pinpoint when I started to fall in love, but I remember the moments that I’d wake up or Tara would wake up first, and you get the opportunity to take stock of what’s going on.
“It came out of nowhere, but when it came it was a little but like an anvil – it was quite special.”
