Meeting Rich! It was an absolute pleasure. You learn so much about yourself as well. The friendships I’ve made as well, I’ve made friends for life.
I’ve said to him from the start, that I’m just dying to get a coffee with him! Live life and go for a drive, blast the music and jam out together in a car. Just the normal day-to-day stuff because I think it is the little things. So that’s what I’m excited for!
I’ve said to him there’s no rush with things like that. He said that he doesn’t see the point of pulling little man [her son Elijah] out of school and changing his location.
Yeah! I think he is an incredible man and he would not only make a great role model for Elijah but I think when the time is right, he would be an incredible dad.
I think they will get on like a house on fire. I think they’ll gang up on me![laughs] I’m very excited at the idea of them meeting each other. It will warm my heart to see the two of them together.
Yes! I can actually see him being so natural with it all. I said to him, as long as you’re just yourself and you can always come to me if you have questions. I’m sure he’s going to have a million questions but we’re in this together.
It was really, really hard. How do you explain something like this to a five-year-old? I said to him that I would be going away and I might meet someone really, really special and really, really cool and I’ll make some really great friends along the way.
We really get each other. We connected straight away. We have so much fun together and understand each other. He makes me laugh, and I’ve always said if you can make me laugh I’ll love you forever.
It is reality telly. They’re always going to throw in the juiciest edit that they can. I’ve been labelled the Stage Five Clinger/American Psycho. I’m definitely not like that [laughs]!
It was so random. I’ve never seen the show. I was on the Channel Ten website and the applications came up. I clicked on it, went to work, came back and I ended up filling it out until 2am that morning. It was very spontaneous.How hard were the home visits knowing you were introducing Richie to your loved ones while there were 3 other girls in the running?
I think that’s why I chose not to have Elijah there because that would be confusing for the little guy.
It was hard but I was so excited for him to meet my family. I was really excited but you’re quickly brought back to reality knowing there are three other girls doing the same thing.
No! After I did it, I remember saying it might be a bit controversial but I didn’t realise the full gravity of it! I had so much fun on that date. How many people can say that they’ve done that?
You’ve really got to be able to compartmentalise and separate it. I lived it so I was very aware of things I would potentially would see.
I pester Olena nearly every day. I message her nearly every day.
I have absolutely no regrets about being on the show! I wouldn’t change a thing.
I learnt that I am quite strong. It takes a lot for someone to be able to put themselves out there on a show like this. I have respect for every single girl that’s done it because it’s huge, it’s absolutely massive.
