The Bachelor and The Bachelorette Casts in Real Life
The casts may not have Fiji/Bachelor in Paradise this year, but they do have Sydney’s eastern suburbs, a place where contestants past and present can fraternise and maybe find love off-screen. In a year of major changes to our lives and to how the Bachie series themselves played out, some things never change — the stars of Bachie flock together.
Here’s who was papped on Saturday: The Bachelor‘s Bella Varelis, Bec Cvilikas, Bel Colwell, Juliette Herrera, Leilani Vakaahi, Emma Roche and Dasha Gaivoronski; and The Bachelorette‘s Adam Todd, Shannan Karaka, Sam Vescio, Pascal Wallace, Nick Chamberlain, Samuel Minkin and Jackson Garlick. On top of that, a couple of contestants from other dating shows were also seen as part of the group, Married at First Sight‘s Dean Wells and Ivan Sarakula and Love Island‘s Phoebe Thompson.
While most of the action unfolded via Instagram Stories and pap photos, Dasha shared a grateful post about Saturday to Instagram overnight.
“Even though I’m still convinced the Bachelor🌹 franchise jinxed me as ever since doing the show I’ve been dead single (which has been exactly 2 years now) there is always a silver lining 😇,” the fifth place contestant from Honey Badger’s season wrote.
“I’ve always been a ‘glass half full’ kinda person and am so freaking thankful to have met some amazing people during and after this experience❤️,” she added. “It applies to any life situation but I’ve always said ‘no one will ever get you like someone who’s been through the same madness’ 😛”
It’s the second time this year’s Bachie casts have been spotted out and about, after they headed out in Bondi on Wednesday night to watch State of Origin together. That circle included Bella, Bec, Bel, Leilani, Adam, Shannon, Pascal and Nicole Campbell.
The most talked-about potential coupling from the so-called “Bachelor in Bondi” is Bachelor runner-up Bella and Elly Miles’ number three, Adam. When Adam was sent home from The Bachelorette earlier this month, Bella posted to her Instagram Stories, “Adam, I’ll have you.” Adam admitted on The Project the next day that he and Bella had connected over DM.
According to The Wash, Shannan and Perth’s Adam and Trent Cray have signed a lease together on a Bachelor pad in Bondi, with the gossip rag told that Trent fancies another of this year’s Bachie hopefuls, Juliette.
Will we see love unfold over Instagram Stories?
