Now radio host and long-time Summer Bay resident, Kate Ritchie, who now works in radio, has stood up for The Bachelorette alum.
On Nova’s Kate, Tim & Marty show yesterday, the 38-year-old said she didn’t understand why people were being so critical of Frost and “mean-spirited” about her latest career move.
“There have been a lot of people who have joined that show without any training and some have left without any training,” she explained to her listeners.
“They’ve gone on to do many things or they remain there because it’s a very worthy career in itself.
“What’s everyone meant to do? Turn down opportunities because they’re worried about what everyone is going to think of it?”
Frost, herself, defended her move into Summer Bay on Instagram on Thursday night.
“I am not afraid to challenge myself, to push through barriers,” she wrote. “I work incredibly hard professionally & personally to constantly grow, learn and evolve.”
