The Bachelor 2019: Meet Rachael Arahill and see her INCREDIBLE beauty transformation

She looks COMPLETELY different!

By Rebecca Sullivan
With a brand new season of The Bachelor kicking off this week, the race is on to find out as much as we can about the stunning women vying for Matt Agnew's heart.
And already one contestant has made one hell of an impression, the gorgeous blonde Rachael Arahill.
Yep, she was the one who turned up in the wedding dress!
The 25-year-old personal trainer from Sydney has been dubbed the show's next Keira Maguire, thanks to her unabashed honesty and X-rated appearance in the latest Channel 10 trailer.
It seems Matt and Rachael might have a bit of a personality clash on their hands, with the bold beauty declaring to the camera: "I don't want to change for anyone at this stage."
Watch the tense moment in the video player below. Story continues after video.

Rachael, who grew up in Hornsby, but currently lives in Curl Curl on Sydney's Northern Beaches, has made no apologies for her rather direct approach, and had this to say when asked if she is this season's Keira, the famous villain-turned-unlikely-feminist-hero from Richie Strahan's 2016 season: "Possibly, yeah," she told The Daily Telegraph.
"I definitely have a lot to say, that's for sure," she revealed.
"I will bring brutal honesty, an attitude where I don't really care that much and I will bring a laugh."

What's also interesting to note is that Rachael didn't apply to go on The Bachelor, but was instead approached by a producer, who thought she'd make for interesting television.
"I got approached to go on the show, so I thought 'I am not really doing too much else so I might take up the experience'," Rachael told The Daily Telegraph.

And when you carefully look at the way Rachael talks about her time on the show, it's clear she knows exactly what she is doing - providing some much-needed drama and entertainment.
"I don't think I am a little hottie, I just think I have a big personality, so I think that's what lured them in," Rachael said of her appeal to the show's producers.
"I say it how it is and call a spade a spade. I think casting agents want people with big and interesting personalities and people looking for love," she said.
"At the end of the day they have to make a TV show. Especially after last year when the Honey Badger didn't choose anyone. They need a love story."

Rachael says she doesn't have anything to hide about her past and is aware the show could bring up her past relationships.
"I am very much an open book so if something does come out about me, I am not going to deny it," she revealed.
"I don't think I have much to hide but we will see what happens.
"I am friends with all my ex-boyfriends, except one."
