The saying goes that all human beings are connected by six degrees of separation.
But, in the insular world of The Bachelor franchise we're convinced that number must be significantly smaller.
It appears everyone knows someone in the reality TV sphere.
On Locky Gilbert's season of The Bachelor just passed it was runner-up Bella Varelis who had many ex Bachie ties.
And on this double season of The Bachelorette with Elly and Becky Miles, it appears it's contestant Damien Stone who is already deeply connected within the Bachie universe.
The 31-year-old property valuer has been linked to many reality stars, including one of his closest friends Love Island Australia star, Todd Elton, who appeared on season two of the show.
Regularly appearing in photos with Todd, Damien's also been snapped with fellow Love Island stars Cartier Surjan, Jessie Wynter, Blake Williamson, Anna McEvoy and Josh Packham.
Deeper into the intricate web of reality connections, Damien's close mate Todd recently shared a snap holidaying with Bachelor alumni Alex McKay, Timm Hanly, Ciarran Stott and Jackson Garlick.
Whether Damien's close ties pushed him to go on The Bachelorette is hard to say, but it doesn't seem he's afraid to commit.
According to his bio from Channel Ten Damien's looking for love after going through a divorce.
"Having been heartbroken from a previous marriage, this 31-year-old won't settle for anything less than the real deal and is excited about the possibility of meeting someone he can really vibe with," it reads.
However, the outcome of his quest for love with Bachelorette Becky may have already been spoiled.
According to the Daily Mail Damien 'makes it pretty close to the end' of the show, but doesn't win.
The eligible bachelor has also been spotted on dating site Hinge as uncovered by So Dramatic podcast.
Only time will tell if Damien's The One.
