Despite being unlucky in love on Georgia Love’s season of The Bachelorette Australia, it seems Jake Ellis is spoilt for choice on Bachelor In Paradise.
After revealing he’d spent time with Florence Moerenhout before the show, Jake quickly linked up with the Dutch beauty on the island.
“Florence and I reconnected straight away,” Jake tells TV WEEK. “There was a spark. It was good to see someone I knew.”
But the arrival of leggy blonde Megan Marx on the island sparked excitement for Jake.
“I first met her a year ago at an event in Sydney, not long after both our seasons,” the 31-year-old explains. “She was still with Tiffany [Scanlon] then, but there was chemistry between us.
“When Megan arrived in paradise, there was an instant attraction.”
However, Jake might already have a rival for Megan’s affections.
A teaser clip screened during the first episode showed Megan locking lips with Elora Murger.
“We spoke about Megan’s bisexuality during the show,” Jake reveals.
“But that’s a part of who she is and I appreciate and respect that. It didn’t bother me.
“The Elora thing doesn’t complicate anything for me. At the end of the day, you just need to fight for what you want.”
