There's no dating pool smaller than the one Australian reality TV stars seem to swim in.
And ahead of the Matt Agnew's season of The Bachelor kicking off, it's been revealed that one of the women vying for his heart has been romantically linked to someone else on reality TV in the past.
Monique Morley, who will make her debut on Channel Ten tonight, once dated Married At First Sight's Rhyce Power and we are gobsmacked!

And according to a 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,'" an insider tells Now To Love.
"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 on 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.
Now To Love has reached out to Rhyce for comment.
