As much as we’re obsessed with The Bachelor and Bachelorette, we’ve realised one huge, gaping flaw:
We rarely see our true favourites find love.
And that sucks. Because they’re our favourites and we develop an emotional attachment to these people… as if they’re a distant cousin, or that work colleague who you like but not quite enough to catch up outside work.
… You get what I mean.
So, the women of the Mamamia office decided to fix this dilemma ourselves because we are problem-solving ladies, dammit! We’ve done so by match-making (Bach-making?) our faves from both seasons so they can live happily ever after.
And holy banana, you guys. These matches just make so much sense.
COUPLE ONE: Rhys and Keira
Oh yes oh yes oh yes.
I don't think you could find a better match than modelz Rhys Chilton and Keira Maguire. You just... can't.
I can see their lives together now: there are just so many candid Insta pics to be taken (and in Rhys' case, photoshopped), sassy interviews to be given, and blue carpet events to attend.
Listen: The Bach Chat podcast speaks to Rhys about that infamous Photoshop incident. (Post continues after audio.)
It's a textbook model romance.
Sadly, Rhys is from the Sunshine state, and the glorious Keira is from Sydney... but love knows no bounds, right?
COUPLE TWO: Cameron and Nikki
Okay, before any of you scream "WHAT ABOUT MATTY J" at your screens, hear a gal out. I've got dot points, and I ain't afraid to use 'em.
- Both from WA = tick
- Both incredibly likeable and genuine = tick
- Both ridiculously attractive = tick
- Both Australia's sweethearts = tick
- Did I mention both from WA? Tick tick tick tick tick tick tick bloody tick.
Also, it just so turns out Cam and Nikki spent Thursday night watching The Bachelorette finale together:
Was amazing to meet the rest of the WA Bachie fam last night to watch the final episode together. Congratulations to @leeroyelliott and @georgiealove you both deserve the happiness that follows! Matty J so much respect for how you held yourself. It takes guts to live your life with your heart on your sleeve like that but it will only bring you great things in the future. (And yes i met @nikki_gogan ???? ) #bachelorau #bacheloretteau #done
