Last year’s season of The Bachelor delivered plenty of drama — not least when Richie Strahan chose Alex Nation over Nikki Gogan in the final episode.
But there’s absolutely no arguing the fact Keira Maguire was the star of the show. Thanks to her propensity to tell it like it is, the outspoken “villain” quickly became a crowd favourite, and it was sad to see her go.
On Tuesday night, after several days of promos, Aussie viewers were treated to another serve of Keira as she finally entered the jungle in I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here.
Suffice to say, Keira’s fellow celebrities were surprised to see her wander into their camp… and a couple of them seemed almost unimpressed.
As she nervously announced herself as Osher’s final gift — “I’m Keira from The Bachelor, for those who don’t know” — it was hard to miss the blank looks on Steve Price and Lisa Curry’s faces.
Although Keira didn’t live up to our wildest dreams by referring to her fellow contestants as “peasants” — her most iconic phrase from the good ol’ Bachie days — she did offer an honest opinion of her new digs.
“That better not be second-hand,” she quipped as Nat Bassingthwaighte showed her to her new “prime position” bed.
Keira also revealed she’d been waiting in the wings in South Africa for several days.
