It might seem risky to give up a successful career in pursuit of the perfect partner, but for Georgia Love it just made sense.
The 27-year-old quit her job as a WIN television journalist in Launceston to be the Bachelorette after her mother’s fight against cancer made her realise something was missing from her life.
“She’s going through chemo at the moment to make sure everything’s gone, but it’s still very touch-and-go,” Love told TV Week.
Love revealed her decision to go on the show coincided with her mum Belinda’s diagnosis with pancreatic cancer.
“The fact it was all happening at the same time made me decide, ‘Yes, I want to do this’… It puts it into perspective how important family and love are.”
