EXCLUSIVE: Locky Gilbert just dropped a HUGE clue about who wins The Bachelor

Is this a coincidence? We think not!

By Rebecca Sullivan and Alex Lilly
From the very first moment our new Bachelor Locky Gilbert locked eyes on the stunning Bella Valeris during the reality show's premiere episode, he was hooked.
The 30-year-old adventure guide from Perth was immediately smitten with the gorgeous 25-year-old brunette, gushing about her beautiful brown eyes the moment he saw her.
"Sorry, I just got lost in your eyes, they're beautiful," Locky said to Bella.
And now in a new video interview with Now To Love, as part of our Two Minute Speed Date series, which you can watch in the player above, Locky's answer to one very simple question could give us a massive hint that he does in fact pick Bella to be his girlfriend at the end of the series.
When asked about the first thing he notices in a partner, Locky immediately replied, "her eyes", without skipping a beat.
And what feature did he first notice about Bella, during their very first meeting? Her eyes, of course. Coincidence?

Even if Locky does pick Bella, their road to love certainly won't be smooth sailing, with Channel 10 this week confirming the season ends in a tumultuous love triangle, as Locky finds himself deeply in love with two women.
"Locky, by his own admission, falls in love with more than one girl," The Bachelor Australia's executive producer Hilary Innes told Media Week on Monday.
Viewers are guaranteed an outcome that's pretty much the opposite of what happened in 2018, when the Bachie literally picked no one.
"Famously the Honey Badger [Nick Cummins] couldn't choose someone," Hillary said, "and now we have a Bachelor who has fallen in love with more than one girl, which is a first for us in Australia."

But Locky confessed that deciding which woman to choose nearly broke him.
"When I got down to the end, it was one of the hardest decisions of my life," Locky told KIIS FM's The Kyle and Jackie O Show.
"People say you can't be in love with two people. But I definitely think you can and in the Bachelor world it's definitely possible," he added.

And he put to bed the theories that the finale episode ends with Locky deciding to date both women, with the trio riding off into the sunset in a ménage à trois, and confirmed he makes the tough call and sends his runner-up home.
During an interview with Now To Love last week, Locky confirmed he's now dating (and in love with) just one of the women.
"It's an amazing feeling – I don't think I've felt love like this before," he said.
"I wake every morning and the love is stronger and stronger, I can see so far into the future [with her]."
So, will Bella steal Locky's heart? We'll have to wait and see.
The Bachelor airs on Wednesday and Thursday nights at 7.30pm on Channel 10.
