We’re yet to see a single red rose handed out this year but we’re already being treated to MORE exciting Bachie news with the announcement of this year’s Bachelorette Australia.

Channel Ten made the big reveal this morning confirming former Bachelor contestant Brooke Blurton will be our Bachelorette for 2021.

“Australia, say hello to your 2021 Bachelorette, Brooke Blurton.”

Brooke, who came out as bisexual on the Honey Badger’s season will likely bring a welcome shake up to the show’s format. Her Aboriginal heritage also makes her one of a few people of colour from the franchise to be named a Bachelor or Bachelorette.

If you’ve ever considered applying for the show or think you could be her perfect person, you’re in luck because applications for the show are still open here.

We can only hope this year’s Bachelorette season will prove luckier than the last.

Channel Ten dropped quite the bombshell on fans last year, announcing not one but two Bachelorettes in sister duo Elly and Becky Miles.

Despite both leaving the reality series with their top choices, both Elly and Becky’s romances broke down after the show.

For Becky, who chose Pete Mann, the split happened swiftly, so much so she was still stunned and heartbroken when speaking to Now To Love the day after the finale.

“We spent about three days together and we had a lovely time. I think that’s why I was quite blindsided when he broke it off because, you know, in those moments he was saying all the right things,” Becky told Now To Love at the time.

“Once we were back home I gave him a little bit of space and then we had a FaceTime call and he just expressed to me that he’d realised that he didn’t really think there was a spark there.”

Things didn’t work out between Pete and Becky.

As for Elly, her split from Frazer was shrouded in rumours of cheating, which she recently revealed he has always denied.

“How can you really know until that person admits it to you? Frazer has definitely not admitted that to me, he’s definitely always denied it,” she admitted to The Real House Husbands podcast.

“I had the highest hopes, I was very naive and I guess caught up in hoping the best for the situation.”
