Bachelorette’s Ciarran Stott divides followers with new look: ‘Not a fan’

Former Bachelorette star Ciarran Stott has debuted a brand new look on social media.

The 27-year-old, who had long blonde locks for his two reality TV stints, showed off his freshly shaven haircut on Wednesday night.

After his appearance on Angie Kent’s season of The Bachelorette, Ciarran suddenly became the resident ‘villain’ on Bachelor In Paradise last year.

He quickly cut off his long hair and dyed it pink post-show, before returning to his signature bleached blonde shortly after.

The video, which was originally posted on TikTok and shared to his Instagram, shows Ciarran with his shortest ‘do yet.

“So I had a thought,” he captioned the post.

Some of his followers praised the new look, with fellow Bachelor In Paradise star Keira Maguire and Married At First contestant Nick Furphy commenting fire emojis.

“Just when I thought you couldn’t get any hotter,” one fan wrote.

“Wow it totally accentuates how attractive your face is,” another shared. “I usually HATE shaved heads, but this looks AMAZING on you.”

“Dude, is there a hairstyle you can’t pull off?” someone else added.

A fourth posted: “Omg you look sexy with or without hair.”


Other users expressed their distaste for Ciarran’s new look, with many people simply writing “why?”.

“Not a fan sorry,” one follower commented.

“Nooo, bring back the braids,” someone pleaded, while another person replied, “please grow it long again”.

Alex Nation's transformation

Ciarran’s post comes after fellow Bachelor alum Alex Nation shared her own dramatic hair transformation online last week.

The 29-year-old, who was known for having blonde hair when she appeared on the reality franchise twice, is now rocking a fiery shade of red.

“Guess who’s back,” she captioned the post alongside an orange heart.

Fans were quick to compliment her style, with many commenting “stunning”, “gorgeous” and “beautiful”.

After going Instagram official with partner Carson Jory late last year, Alex announced the couple’s pregnancy in January.

“I wonder if you’ll have your father’s eyes? Will be you be stubborn like your mother?” she captioned the announcement. “See you soon little darling.”
