Bachelor in Paradise

Who is Caroline Lunny? Everything you need to know about the Bachelor In Paradise newcomer

Get to know the show's newest star!

Caroline Lunny strode in to Paradise last night, quickly catching the attention of several Bachelors upon her arrival.
Caroline already shared a flirtatious first date with Richie Strahan, and could be well on her way to finding a summer romance on the series.
She's been on two Bachelor franchise series in the US, but for us Australian viewers of Bachelor In Paradise… Australia, Caroline isn't a well-known figure.
So here's everything you need to know about the brunette beauty.

Who is Caroline Lunny?

I mean, it's the existential question we must all ask ourselves, but talking just facts over here: Caroline is a 28-year-old Realtor from Holliston, Massachusetts.
She's previously competed in pageants, and was crowned Miss Massachusetts USA in 2014. She currently lives in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.

When was Caroline on The Bachelor?

Caroline hails from Season 22 of The Bachelor (US), the 2018 season with real estate agent and race car driver Arie Luyendyk Jr.
Caroline was sent home in week four, and was probably thanking her lucky stars as the series became known for it's controversial end.
Similar to our own Season 2 Bachelor Blake Garvey, Arie proposed to the 'winner' before later changing his mind, ending the engagement, and admitting he was in love with the runner-up. Sounds very familiar.

Caroline later joined the American Bachelor In Paradise for its fifth season in 2018, but was sent home in week two.

Why has she signed on to Bachelor In Paradise Australia?

Caroline is looking for something "long term" with a "tall and handsome" man, though she's open to just "having some fun" if she doesn't find her Mr. Right. So far, she's made a connection with Richie, so things aren't looking all too shabby.
However, based on last night's episode, she might be under the impression that Australia is the land of roaming Hemsworths. Here's hoping our guys don't dissapoint (spoiler: they probably will).

Where can I follow Caroline on Instagram?

Like any good Bachie star, Caroline has a very active Instagram and has already been posting plenty of photos and hilarious anecdotes about her time in Paradise. And, yes, she's already addressed the cringe poop conversation with Richie in her Instagram Story.
You can follow her at @carolinelunny.

Bachelor In Paradise Australia airs Tuesday to Thursday, 7:30pm, on Network 10.
