It’s not often a contestant leaves a reality show, watches it back and says, “Yep, that’s me”.

And that's exactly what the 31-year-old actress and event co-coordinator did – from her opening song to the final rose.
We first met Eliza when she strolled up the driveway to meet her potential suitor armed with shoulder-pads, a sparkly belt and a song in her heart.
