A lot can change in 10 months, but none of us saw the 180 degree switch in public opinion towards former-Bachelorette fave Ciarran Stott coming.
In October last year, Ciarran became a darling of Australia when he appeared on Angie Kent's season of The Bachelorette. We saw him as this fabulous modern day man who didn't let his inhibitions bother him. He was sensitive and open-minded, and open to a leopard print necktie, earrings and a little makeup.
We laughed at his willingness to pose naked in front of Angie, Yvie and the other bachelors for a live drawing class. Then we cried when he cried, as he tearfully told Angie about how his nan had died and he needed to leave the mansion as he was no longer in the right headspace.

Even after the episode of him leaving aired, viewers and social media rallied behind him to be the one handing out roses in 2020 as the next Bachelor.
