Bachelor's Heather Maltman looks unrecognisable following transformation for ad

The reality star appeared on the show in 2015.

Former Bachelor star Heather Maltman, who appeared in Sam Wood's season of the show in 2015, has resurfaced in a new ad for Nintendo Switch, with the reality star and actress looking very different.

Fans will remember Heather's straight, long brunette locks on the show, but the reality star was rocking a much shorter and curlier do in the ad, in which the actress plays an aunt who is spending time with her nephew while playing a Pokemon game on the device.

Heather's character wears casual clothing and minimal makeup, showing off her natural beauty.

The former reality star chopped off her locks in 2021 to raise funds for children's charity, Variety.


Heather may not have found love on The Bachelor, but she did find it after the show with her fiancé, podcast host and personal trainer Matt Baker, whom she describes as "the love of my life".

The pair first began dating in 2017 and sadly experienced a miscarriage in 2019.

Heather opened up about the devastating loss of her and Matt's baby, who they named Llewy, in a heartfelt Instagram post in November 2019. She explained the pair would be wrapping up season one of their ONE podcast earlier than expected to take time to 'heal' after the miscarriage.

"@baksey01 and I have decided to end the ONE podcast for its first season. And pick it up again in 2020. After the last 2 months. And having to say good bye to our little person Llewy... We need time to heal," she wrote.

She went on to thank those who had shared their own experiences with pregnancy loss and promise to start a new podcast to openly talk about ‘all of the things people are too scared to discuss’.

Heather also thanked the hospital staff at Sydney's Randwick Macquarie ward who had looked after her over the past two weeks when she had a strong reaction to medication and complications that results in surgery.

The former reality star revealed she and Matt were engaged in 2021.
