Bachelor's Ciarran Stott debuts dramatic hair makeover

Bachelor in Paradise 2020 star Ciarran Stott has sure turned up the heat this season, even if it’s just from all the fire he has come under for a number of his questionable manoeuvres on the show so far.

Now the British single has matched his hair to his reputation, shaking up his look with a jaw-dropping transformation.

The reality star showed off a brand new fiery red ‘do on Instagram on Thursday, with his blonde locks dyed a startling hot pink bordering on red.

The trademark long hair has also had a cop, Ciarran now rocking a short, sharp cut that shows off his colourful neck tattoos.

“Aussies next bachelor haha,” hairstylist Natasha Humphreys of Edwards & Co who is behind the new look captioned a snap of the TV personality.

“@ciarranstott got himself a makeover and it FIRE.”

The cut divided opinion among fans.

Some thought the cut was fresh but not sold on the colour, while others were loving the edgy new look.

Ciarran in hot water with Bachelor fans over ‘double standards’

The transformation may be a step in Ciarran’s attempts to redeem himself, as fans have been left disappointed by his antics on the season of Bachelor in Paradise so far, as well as those of best mate Timm Hanley.

Ciarran and Timm were fan favourites during Angie Kent’s season of The Bachelorette in 2019, Timm even making the final two, but both have left fans disappointed over some very old-fashioned double standards being played out on the current series.

Ciarran shocked viewers when he slammed intruder Matt Whyatt for going on a date with his ex-girlfriend Renee Barrett without asking his ‘permission’.

This was despite the fact that Ciarran had no issues having a fling with Renee’s friend Jessica Brody in the series’ first episodes, only to unceremoniously ditch her for Kiki Morris when she arrived at the villas.

Oh, and the pair’s relationship ended when the British-born Ciarran cheated on her.

Making matters worse was the fact that Timm sided with Ciarran, invoking the cripplingly archaic structure known as the ‘bro code’ to a collective shudder from most fans of the show.

Fans and former members of the franchise including Georgia Love have slammed the behaviour with Georgia calling the pair ‘horribly unattractive’ after watching the episode.
