Like a lot of Bachelor fans, I wasn’t too sure of Alex Nation when she showed up in my lounge room every Wednesday and Thursday night.
On my TV, I mean. Cmon you guys, it’s not like Alex is some crazed stalker who showed up at my house twice a week for months…
ANYWAY – you get my gist. In the 120 minutes of hormone-laden drama that Channel 10 handed Bach viewers weekly, I wasn’t really a fan of her. Alex appeared on my screen to be an incredibly jealous and emotional lass that made me pledge my unwavering allegiance to Team Nikki.
That’s why, when Alex was crowned the ruler of Richie’s heart forevermore, I was a bit upset.
Despite the protests from Mamamia staffers who had spoken to Alex herself and told me how lovely she is, I was uncertain.
That is until approximately 11am yesterday, which shall forever now be known as the moment I FELL IN LOVE WITH ALEX NATION, YOU GUYS.
Like Richie, dude, I get you. I see it all so clearly now.
I’ve interviewed a few local celebs in this job (not a humble brag – I promise – I doubt any of them could pick me from a one-person lineup) and almost always, they are lovely but distant. Polite but very busy. Friendly, but in an “I’m very aware this is a media interview” way.
