***Warning: This post contains a lot of mentions of man buns***
Sam Cochrane AKA Man Bun AKA Uncle Sam was on Sophie Monk’s season of The Bachelorette.
He’s now a contestant on Bachelor in Paradise 2018.
We first met Sam when his nephews introduced him to Sophie on the rose-scattered red carpet during the first episode.
It was a very clever man bun move and it earned him the first impression rose, which meant he got to have two single dates with Sophie.
With one rose left and standing beside these guys. It was a split. The two men I stepped away from are by all means better men then me. @luke.mcleod and @mackane.reid you are both such down to earth, warm and real guys. This journey could never have been the same without you both and I truly thank you for being the great people you are. Thank you. @sophiemonk, you show such true heart in these moments and there is no better bachelorette out there. #rose #myboysAdvertisement
At the first cocktail party he participated in a man bun-off with fellow man bun bachelor, Harry. Harry… won.
Everything was going well for Sam until the first group date when he told Sophie he could see her “cans”.
Sophie thought it was a very silly thing to say.
The Monk also had some reservations about Sam and thought he may have just been in it for the
man bun fame.
In the end, Sophie decided Sam and his man bun weren’t right for her.
Later, Sam told Now To Love, he’s had no trouble “meetin’ the ladeez” since leaving the show.
“Yeah, they will come up to me when I’m out,” he explained.
“I’ve even had married women come up to me and ask for a selfie because their husbands are such big fans of the show.”
Anywho, Sam is now on the very first season of Bachelor of Paradise and we’re sure his man bun is loving its lil’ holiday in the sun.
