She's the savviest – and sassiest – star to emerge from The Bachelor, and Keira Maguire is showing no signs of slowing down in the wake of her split from Jarrod Woodgate!
Yep, after her fairytale romance with the 32-year-old vineyard manager came crashing down when Jarrod suddenly dumped her in mid-August, Keira's been hard at work to ensure she "wins the break-up" – and more than anything, she wants to score the coveted role of Australia's 2019 Bachelorette!
"Jarrod broke Keira's heart – she was picturing marriage and babies with this guy, and then he just dumped her!" spills NW's source.
"So she's going to make sure she has the last laugh by looking for love on TV again, and reminding him of what he threw away."
In fact, NW hears that casting agents are eager to sign Keira, 31, up to the series as fans have "really warmed to her" since her appearance on Bachelor in Paradise earlier this year.
"Everyone has discovered a sweeter side to Keira – and more than ever they want her to have her happily ever after," spills the source. "And there's no doubt that she's keen – she's wanted this opportunity for so long!"
Uh-huh, Keira has been vocal about following in the footsteps of Jarrod's exes Sophie Monk, 38, and Ali Oetjen, 32, and handing out the roses on the dating show.
"I feel like it's more my thing – at least I have control," she admits. "I'd definitely do it! But I would probably be a lot nicer because I wouldn't want to put anyone through what I went through."
