This is it, you guys. We’re down to the final two. There two ladies have run the muscley Tim gauntlet and taken out 23 other women to make it to the finish line. The very first season of the Bachelor Australia is about to come to and end.
So who are we left with?
Rochelle, the 27-year-old model who got in trouble with Tim for not revealing her scandalous beauty pageant past.
Anna, the 26-year-old criminal lawyer who got in trouble with Tim for refusing to list all the reasons why she loves his muscles and shiny hair.From left: Rochelle, Tim and Anna
Both girls are head over heels and pretty much on par when it comes to make-out session numbers.
I was lucky enough to hang out with both ladies yesterday and I may or may not be privy to who has taken this thing out. But my lips are sealed! (Or Channel Ten would actually, literally kill me.)
So here are the bits from the interview that I can share with you before the winner is revealed on tonight’s show (The Bachelor Australia starts at 7:30pm on Channel Ten – and I hear The Bachelor himself will be live-tweeting, so you might want to check what he manages to come up with. Hopefully nothing to do with jus.)
See if you can pick the winner from these answers…
Rosie Waterland (RW): Why did you decide to do it?
Rochelle (R): Well, I had come out of a long-term relationship earlier this year and it was like, the hardest part of my life. I was in Sydney, on my own, we’d moved here together. He’s gone back to Perth. I’d moved house on my own, I was feeling a little depressed and lonely – actually the most in my entire life. Then someone recommended me – an agent – because they were like “the show wants someone from every career path and they don’t have any models, you need to go in there and apply.” I went in there thinking “well this is not going to happen… and a couple of days later I was approved and going in.” So I actually hadn’t even processed it and then I was like “What! I’m doing this.”
Anna (A): I’m 26. And I’ve never had a serious boyfriend. Its not like I’ve never kissed a boy – I’ve just never dated people or found someone that I could call the one or call my boyfriend. So I heard about this through a friend and she kind of basically signed me up. And I thought why not? I can’t find a boyfriend in the so-called ‘real world’ so why not give this a try. You never know.
RW: What was it like in the house?
R: It was just similar to when I did (beauty) pageants, you know? Living wth that many women – I’d already taught myself how to do that. With women – you need to almost flirt with the girls, become close with them, ease into their lives. They respect that a lot. So they take a little bit of work, but if you give each one a bit of time, you’ll grow some amazing friendships out of it and it’ll be a lot easier.
A: Well, we’re on complete lockdown. Unless you’re on a date. So I think you just had to make the most of your time in the house and forget about Tim and just kind of focus on the girls and pass time. So we watched movies, I ran up and down the stairs like a hundred times to get fit… Like, really – there was absolutely nothing to do. You just had to find things to do. But we all got along. I tried to get along with all the girls because I knew getting along with the girls would help my time. And it made my time more enjoyable.
