Despite being a truly, truly awful singer, The Bachelorette‘s Lee Elliot is currently number one on Channel 10’s love leader board and it’s not hard to see why.
Once crowned Victoria’s Hottest Tradie (seriously), the 35-year-old mechanical plumber is miles ahead of the competition with a 46 per cent chance of taking this thing home.
But it’s not just his penchant for dad jokes, his pet donkey or the fact that he looks like an OPSM model, which has everyone tipping Lee as The Future Mr Love. There’s also a mounting body of evidence to support the rampant speculation.
Now, there’s some rather enormous spoilers coming so just to be clear: THIS IS YOUR OFFICIAL SPOILER ALERT.
Proceed no further if you don’t want to know any more.
I repeat: DO NOT PROCEED BEYOND THIS GALLERY OF PICTURES OF LEE’S PERFECTLY CHISELLED FACE.
Okay cool. Don’t say you weren’t warned.
Here’s what we know…
Basically, Lee has hinted he and Georgia Love are still seeing one another even though filming the show wrapped months ago.
“We want to be out and we want to be doing things,” he told OK! magazine.
“Going out to the Yarra Valley or down the coast for lunch, that’s just who we are.”
On top of that Lee and 29-year-old Matty J were both snapped Georgia, 28, filming the final episodes of the show in Singapore in August, so we know he makes the final two.
Meanwhile recent evictee Cameron (*sobs quietly*) couldn’t confirm who the winner will be, but he did back Lee in what is clearly now a two donkey race.
“Lee was my best friend, and I knew him best so I’d have to say Lee,” he told TV Week.
“He’s like the perfect human being.”
That said, he didn’t rule out Matty J either.
“Matty J is an absolute unicorn,” he said. I’ve never met anyone who is so well-rounded and has absolutely every aspect of his life sorted.”
Anyway, here’s Lee and Georgia kissing.
