Michael Turnbull puts his foot in it. Possibly reveals the next Bachelor.

Former Bachelorette contender and possible professional soccer player Michael Turnbull has beat Channel 10 at their own game by possibly revealing this year’s Bachelor.

Turnbull – who came second to Sasha on the first season of The Bachelorette – shared a photo with second runner up and Australia’s most eligible man, Richie Strahan.


In a screenshot captured by the Daily Mail, Turnbull initially wrote, “I wonder where Richie has gone” alongside a winky face and some rather telling rose emojis, going on to say, “Wishing him all the best in 2016”.

Whilst Turnbull’s caption was later edited to say, “Richie, where are you I haven’t heard from you for a week. Miss you brother X”, that hasn’t stopped his 117,00 followers celebrating that Strahan may in fact be our next (and let’s face it, best) Bach.

Richie, where are you I haven’t heard from you for a week. Miss you brother X

While you may be able to feel the joy in the air at the thought of Richie’s abs returning to tellies around the country, a few are lamenting the decision, with one of Turnbull’s followers commenting that they should have applied.

You and us both, sister.

Don’t let the country down, Channel 10.

Speaking of The Bachelor, Who will Ben propose to in the series finale of The US Bachelor?
