She may not have found The One on her recent trip to Paradise, but it appears Mauritius beauty Helena Sauzier has fallen in love since leaving the show.

Taking to Instagram on Sunday, the Bachelor In Paradise star debuted her new relationship with Australian competitive sailor, Tom Slingsby.

The 25-year-old shared two sweet snaps with Tom, one very appropriate shot given her new beau’s profession, aboard a boat, and another cuddled up on a couch.

“You’ve got me hook, line, and slinger @tslingsby #ican 😉🌹,” Helena cheekily captioned her post.

“Hook, line and slinger,” Helena captioned her official couple post.


Tom shared the same smiling photo with Helena, as well as a group shot of the couple hanging out with their friends.

“So lucky to have met this one ☺️ @helenasauzier” he wrote alongside the images.

The couple already look very comfortable together.


The 35-year-old sailor has one very impressive resume, with an Order of Australia (OAM), three consecutive world championships in sailing Laser dingys and a 2012 Olympic Gold Medal under his belt.

While the couple’s announcement comes what feels like only a month after Paradise, in reality, it’s been close to 10 months since filming for the show wrapped.

Despite a brief connection with Jake Ellis, who then realised he was still in love with his ex-girlfriend Megan Marx, Helena failed to find love in Fiji.

“It’s obviously sad when you realise that there’s no one there for you but I had a great time,” she told WHO after leaving the show.

While Helena had a relatively relaxed time in Paradise, leaving the drama to the likes of Ciarran Stott, she did find herself caught up in an off-screen scandal.

Fans learned the show’s power-couple, Alisha Aitken-Radburn and Glenn Smith, had encountered a few relationship hurdles after the show, including Glenn’s secret kiss with co-star Helena.

Glenn kissed Helena after leaving the show with Alisha.


“When we left Paradise, about a week after Paradise, we both flew back into Sydney, we spent a week together and then Glenn flew back to Perth,” Alisha recently revealed on the Shameless podcast.

“And a week after he FaceTimed me and said we’ve got to speak about something and the day after, he’s gone to a buck’s party, ended up at a party with Helena and they shared a kiss. He rang me the next day, FaceTimed me, told me, obviously I was broken.”

Despite the hiccup, the couple managed to work through it – and it seems now all three BIP stars are happy as ever and loved up!
