We were all Perth last night.
As we hyped ourselves up for The Bachelorette finale with an office-wide game of Shark Island last night, something devastating happened.
The Daily Mail dashed our dreams for a night of romantic escapism by revealing the winner of the final rose before the show went to air.
If you missed the episode you can read Rosie’s hilarious recap here.
I was first tipped off that something was amiss by a text from a friend, which read:
“DO NOT CHECK FACEBOOK OR SOCIAL MEDIA JUST SAW SOMETHING VERY CONFRONTING.”
Naturally, I immediately ran to my desk and opened my computer.
And there it was. The Spoiler.
You didn’t even have to click on the article to know who Sam Frost had chosen.
A paparazzi image showing her canoodling with construction manager Sasha was plastered across news feeds and on the Daily Mail homepage — it was gut wrenching stuff.
Late last night, Channel 10 managed to secure an emergency injunction, forcing the Daily Mail take the images down, but the damage had been done.

So this is what it feels like to live in Perth.
Perth: where the geographic reality means that they are always at least two hours behind eight-ball when it comes to reality TV.
Where you can’t open your computer for hours preceding any kind of television mega-event lest those a-holes on the east coast let slip what’s gone down.
For all those times we spoiled your special night on the couch, Perth, we are truly, truly sorry.
