Bachelorette star unrecognisable in sweet throwback snaps

A former Bachelor star has stunned fans with a set of baby-faced childhood throwback photos, that had plenty of people struggling to recognise who it was.

The reality star, who met his wife on the 2016 series of Bachelorette, posted three school photos showcasing his blonde locks and glasses. Can you tell who it is?

If you haven't worked it out, the childhood snaps are none other than the Bachelorette's Lee Elliott.

"I have worn glasses for as long as I can remember and they are as much a part of me as the eyes they help correct," Lee captioned the images.

Lee tied the knot with Georgia Love in a romantic wedding in March, just months after they were forced to change their plans due to COVID-19.

Photos from the day show the loved-up pair said ‘I do’ in front of a stunning floral archway, followed by a reception at Shene Distillery in Tasmania.


Georgia looked stunning in a strapless, crisp white gown by Australian designer Jason Grech.

Speaking to Yahoo Lifestyle of the wedding recently, Georgia said it was the "perfect" day.

"It was just perfect. You know, so many people said to us in the lead up like something will go wrong on the day. So you've just got to not stress about that, it happens to everyone," she said.

"But nothing did and it was just absolute perfection. We were so happy. We're still on cloud nine, it was just amazing."

Who could forget the moment Georgia first met Lee on the set of The Bachelorette Australia in 2016.

He certainly left a lasting impression when he rocked up accompanied by a donkey, with Georgie declaring her love for Lee in the romantic season finale.

But the couple didn’t have an easy start to their romance, the journalist opening up about how she lost her mum to pancreatic cancer just days after the finale aired.

“It was really hard on him, and it was really hard on our relationship,” Georgia said speaking on The Thinkergirls Pod Channel.

“We had a very rocky first six months, and I'm not afraid to say that.”
