Awkward. Two Bachelor in Paradise contestants had already hooked up before the show.


Oh goodie.

Bachelor in Paradise is just about to start and there’s going to be more bachie love scandals than we can poke a long-stemmed rose at.

But if you can’t wait until 7.30pm on Sunday, here’s one we prepared earlier.

It seems two Bach in Paradise contestants have already had a pre-Fiji fling.

Florence Moerenhout and Jake Ellis had met up and “hooked up” a few times before the show started airing.

While speaking to Mamamia last week, fellow contestant Davey Lloyd, let slip the pair had been briefly dating before the show.


And Florence herself told TV WEEK, they “saw each other a few times and started hooking up”.

“We were having fun, but it didn’t work out. It just kind of fizzled out.”

Florence, 28, told the publication that Jake, 31, was a lil’ bit into her when the filming began.

"I had mixed feelings when I saw him, but from the beginning he put in a lot of effort to get my attention," she explained.

"He obviously wanted to rekindle, so I went with it."

Interesting... very interesting.

Bachelor in Paradise will air on Channel Ten this Sunday at 7.30pm.
