The Bachelor Australia star Locky Gilbert has shared his unique take on Julie Andrews’ iconic ‘Hills are Alive’ scene from The Sound Of Music and the X-rated clip is raising eyebrows online.

In the cheeky video he posted to his Instagram ahead of Thursday night’s episode, Locky takes a leaf out of nun-turned-governess Maria’s book and is seen running through a field of waist-high yellow canola flowers — except for one key difference: he’s completely nude.

At one point in the footage — which may have been filmed by a drone — the 30-year-old adventure guide comes to a halt and gazes at his surroundings, all the while relying on the surrounding crop to protect his modesty.

“Just getting ready for tonight’s episode... What’s your pre game routine? #onewithnature,” he captioned the clip which also featured a snippet from the song, “The Hills are Alive.”

Many of Locky’s followers were gobsmacked by his bizarre naked jog, including his fellow Bachie personality, Jamie Doran, who jumped into the comments to ask what was up.

“Hahaha what is doing here, legend?!” BIP star Jamie enquired, to which Locky replied, “just your casual run”.

That wasn’t the only Bachelor alumnus to come out of the woodwork, with Confidence and companionship coach Belinda Love — who appeared on Matty J’s season of The Bachelor — joining the conversation.

“That would be more the dream I would have, running alongside of you haha,” she wrote, earning a smiley face emoji from Locky in reply.

The flirty chat continued when another female fan asked: “Where are your clothes, mister?”

Locky said that he’d “lost em” to which the woman responded: “not gonna lie, I’m not complaining”.

Another observed: “Bach has made you soft, need to get back in Survivor mode on a beach”.

“Give me a machete haha,” Locky joked.

One follower just wanted to know if he’d been asked by producers to strip off and streak through a field to promote the show.

“Shit I hope they paid you extra for this,” they wondered, however, Locky confirmed that it was “all free”. That’s dedication!
