A Bachelor insider is claiming Bella Varelis had a secret deal to make Locky Gilbert’s final two

''Locky had a stronger connection with Bec.''

There have been plenty of explosive claims and rumours to come from this season of The Bachelor Australia with Locky Gilbert.
From theories and whispers about a finale more dramatic than that of ill-fated Nick "Honey Badger" Cummins to secret TV deals, it may be one of the most scandalous seasons yet.
Now, So Dramatic! podcast claims a "well-placed source" has revealed one of the show's early frontrunners, Bella Varelis, secured a secret clause in her contract to make it to the finale.

"Bella was predetermined to make the final two from the very beginning," host Megan Pustetto alleges.
"An insider has said that it was actually a clause written into her contract that her manager negotiated on her behalf."
The podcast goes on to say that the 25-year-old was "supposed to move to LA this year" to pursue a career in acting before The Bachelor offer was made.

It also alleges that Locky wanted to send Bella home earlier, having formed a deeper relationship with another one of his ladies.
"Apparently Locky had a stronger connection with Bec and wanted to send Bella home when she started carrying on about Irena."

In a recent interview with TV WEEK Bella discussed her connection with Bachie front man, Locky.
"We've both said 'love heart emoji you' over text, but not the full sentence yet,"
"Those three words mean a lot to me and Locky knows that, so it's not something I take lightly."
The NSW marketing consultant says spending time talking with Locky outside of filming helped them build a connection.
"There were months between filming and Locky and I would FaceTime for hours a day. We just enjoyed each other's virtual company."
