What would The Bachelor be without 23-year-old Olena Khamula? Probably just as watchable, but we’d then have to find a new contestant to be our pretend best friend.
The beauty stole Richie’s – and Australia’s – heart during her single date on last week’s second episode, but the Ukrainian model has revealed that her parents tried to ban her from auditioning from the show.
"My parents are beautiful, but private people, so they were worried about how I might be portrayed on the show," she told Woman's Day magazine.
"They've seen how emotional the girls get and how hearts get broken and they didn't want that for me."
OK, now we want Olena's parents to adopt us.
Despite only being 23, Olena revealed that it was pressure from her family to settle down and have children that made her apply for the popular dating show.
