He was a fan favourite to win The Bachelorette and the heart of Sam Frost but Richie Strahan was left devastated when he was sent home as the second runner-up.
The 30-year-old was seen posing for photos with a Sam Frost lookalike in the Lavazza marquee at Flemington Racecourse.
Richie and the mystery lookalike posed against the Lavazza media wall for professional photos before she pulled out her phone to take a quick selfie with the rope access technician.

“I like a girl that can make me laugh, but in these kinds of things generally, I’m the guy that’s making her laugh… hopefully,” he said.
