The Bachelor Australia says goodbye to love coach Belinda

We caught up with the vivacious blonde following her departure.

By Chloe Lal
Tonight it was clear Matty was feeling the love for Cobie.
But sadly it was time to bid adieu to our favourite Bachelor Australia love coach.
Belinda, 34, QLD, Love Coach
How did it feel when you were eliminated?
I was shocked. The night before I received the first rose, and we'd shared a great chat. I felt like I had a lot of love to bring… And there were feelings.
Was Matty the guy for you?
I was disappointed we didn’t get more time together but I think ultimately I knew that we’d be great friends but not compatible.
As a love coach, did you try and use any of your trade secrets to get closer to Matty or did you share any tips with the girls?
I allow people to show me who they are, before I continue seeing them. Physically I was into Matty – but I think we were a bit off.
When we first met I did the eye contact exercise and that was intense. What I do is confronting, so I didn’t really share my insight unless they ask.
Belinda had nothing but kind words for Matty
It seems very catty especially with Jen and Leah …
Their drama is very real, and I believe it comes from a place of pain. No judgement there, just an observation. I believe what you see is what you get.The girls do have other sides to themselves, but the drama is intense.
Who were you closest to in the house?
I love Cobie, Akoulina, Tara, Stacey, I really love Elise and Alix. There are many people that I like. I would even communicate with Jen and Leah… But I want to spend quality time with quality people.
I love them all!
What is it like living in the house, there has been speculation that it’s not the best…
I live on my own, so that was intense. But it was amazing. It was quite cold because it rained a lot. The bed was hard! [Laughs] But I always say I’m a bit like the princess and the pea. The food was great and we were really looked after well!
Do you have any regrets?
I have no regrets but I do wish I spoke to Matty more. I always let the girls go in front of me.
Are you still single?
I am still single… There might be one person but who knows!
Who do you think will win?
I love Laura and hope it’s her, but I was in the bottom two with Elise and when I was standing there my heart said ‘OMG you’re going home because Elise is going to win!’
That’s my feeling.
