We all predicted Sam Frost would the first The Bachelorette Australia, and now we’ve got confirmation she’ll be filling the highly anticipated position. The show announced the news via its Facebook page today, saying, “We can finally reveal that Australia’s first Bachelorette is Sam Frost! Can love blossom a second time around?”
Even though everyone had their money on it, a little part of us is surprised that Sam has taken on the role. It’s not because she was so publicly humiliated the first time around, when Blake Garvey proposed to her and called it off before the finale had aired. It’s because just last month Sam said she “couldn’t think of anything worse” than being The Bachelorette Australia.
In fact, she actually claimed she said no to the role. “I have (been asked) and I turned it down,” she told The Daily Telegraph in May. “The Bachelor was 2014 and I just want to move forward. I couldn’t think of anything worse than being The Bachelorette to be honest.”
Well, it looks like her worst nightmare is about to come true. Whether or not you were team Sam, Lisa, or Louise in 2014, we think you’ll be tuning in to see how Sam’s love story ends. We definitely will be.
