We were all so excited to hear that Sophie Monk had been announced as this year’s Bachelorette – and the first celebrity one for Australia.
We heard the news just days after rumours swirled around suggesting Sophie had met with Channel 10 producers to discuss her involvement with the show. It turns out, there was a reason for that.
According to The Daily Telegraph, the TV network announced the news early to contain the rumours.
Not to mention they’ve essentially changed the rules completely this year. The early announcement means that potential Bachelors know exactly whose heart they are going to be fighting for on the show, as the reveal of Sophie as Bachelorette came before casting had been finalised.
This is the first time they have done something like this!
We can’t wait to see the upcoming season of The Bachelorette!
