She's fighting to win the love of straitlaced astrophysicist Matt, but one of Monique's exes couldn't be more different!
The blonde was romanced by MAFS star Jessika Power's "hot brother" Rhyce and NW can confirm the pair officially dated for a few months.
They remain close, but Monique might still have feelings for the tattooed hunk...
"They made a great couple. She thought Rhyce was amazing and was a bit sad when it ended," dishes a friend. Rhyce's sister Jess approved of the match, telling NW,
"They've known each other for years. Monique deserves all the love in the world!''
According to a Now to Love source, Rhyce, who is the brother of controversial MAFS star Jessika Power, considers the Monique "the one that got away".
"Rhyce has said things to Monique like 'We're going to get married when we're in the same place it'll happen I know it,'" the insider said.
"He's also told her 'I hope Matt doesn't end up with you because I want you.'"
A loved-up photo of the pair still exists on Monique's Instagram, and Rhyce can be seen commenting with affectionate emojis on several of The Bachelor beauty's selfies.
And while Monique will be competing for one of Matt's coveted roses on the popular Channel Ten dating show, it seems Rhyce has been busy himself.
Earlier this month Rhyce sparked rumours of a romance with fellow MAFS star Tamara Joy after some very flirty Instagram posts appeared.
The pair got cosy in an Instagram video with Rhyce leaning in for a kiss with the brunette beauty.
This was made even more scandalous by the fact that Tamara's "ex-husband" from the hit TV show, Dan Webb, cheated on Tam with Rhyce's sister Jessika.
MAFS fans were in a frenzy over the posts but the pair later came out to confirm they were just friends.
