She’s already the frontrunner to take out the top spot and win over Bachelor Locky Gilbert’s heart but this isn’t the first time Bella Varelis has dated a contestant from the Bachie franchise.

Last night, fans were left convinced that Bella will no doubt make it to the finale of the Bachelor, after sparks flew when she first met former Survivor star Locky.

Now, it’s been revealed that the 25-year-old NSW marketing consultant has already had a brush with reality TV stars, after she dated Bachelorette contestant Samuel Johnston.

Fans of the show might remember Samuel as the ‘bad boy’ of Georgia Love’s series, after he was booted from the series when she felt he was only there to further his career.

Since then, Samuel has gone on to date Noni Janur for three years. Noni appeared on The Bachelor in 2016.

While it’s not clear how long Bella and Samuel dated, a loved-up snap shows them both on the beach together before things went south.


Since her appearance on the premiere of The Bachelor last night, former alumni of the show, Laura Byrne, who is engaged to Matty J, has thrown her support behind her.

“So excited for you honey, that’s my girl,” she commented on Bella’s Instagram post.

Influencer and best pal, Jadé Tuncdoruk, who goes by the name Jade Tunchy online, uploaded a series of videos to her Instagram Stories, showing the viewing party she had with Bella last night.

Everyone could be seen crying in the clips, as Bella gave Locky a tiny red love heart pin for his jacket.
