It was the constant "is she or isn't she" and now we know... Kinda?

Romy, one third of the Bachelor Australia's resident "tripod" has announced that she was a "paid actress" on the show.

Chatting to Kyle and Jackie O, she said, "I'm an actress and I was paid [to be] on the show."

One listener phoned in and said to her, "I have a friend of a friend who has come out and said - now, they know your brother, Romy - and he has said that you're a paid plant."

The news may come as a surprise to Nick Cummins, who assumed the 30-year-old was a Photo Shoot Director.

Romy said on air, "I'm an actor. There's all these rumours going around that I've been paid."

"Well, look. I'm an actress and I was paid on the show, as was everyone else. My trade is acting, so you do the math."

Jackie O dipped into her year 6 arithmetic, calculating, "When I do the math I think, 'Yeah, you were a paid plant'."

Clearing the air, Romy admitted she wasn't a plant, so to speak, but it "turned into a role pretty quickly."

"We are a cast, after all!"

Romy certainly stole the show, when she rejected a rose from the Honey Badger.

As Nick Cummins offered her the chance to stay on, she said to him, "I can't do it anymore!"

After a huge season, we reckon the 2019 Logies have their best new talent sorted.
