Former pop star and our new Bachelorette Sophie Monk has revealed why she’s turned to the reality show to find her love.
According to the Daily Telegraph, in an upcoming promo for the show, Sophie is seen breaking down in tears explaining that the men she attracts don’t like her for her.
“Living in LA for 10 years, I’ve dated actors and rock stars. I think they’ve fallen in love with my image, not with me.
“Because I’ve played roles that are quite sexy and promiscuous, people think I’m like that. That’s probably why I attract the wrong guys too.
“I am so awkward, the worst flirt you’ve ever met, I get really nervous and it’s just embarrassing when I’m on a date. I’m so lucky to do what I do, but the one thing you do sacrifice is a really healthy, good relationship — that’s one thing I regret.
“I’m just here because I want to find a good man, that I think would be a good father, and just someone that loves me.”
Sophie has been engaged twice, once to Benji Madden (who has since married Cameron Diaz) and later to Jimmy Esebag.
