10 Media Release
First to arrive on the island was bubbly blonde beauty Shannon Baff, best known for scoring the first date but not the first kiss with last season’s Bachelor Nick Cummins.
Next to step out into the sun was Bill Goldsmith, best known for introducing his ex-girlfriend to last season’s Bachelorette Ali Oetjen.
Following Bill’s arrival was fan favourite Brooke Blurton, best known for walking out on Nick Cummins right before the top three rose ceremony.
Personal trainer Paddy Colliar took the Paradise count to four, telling the camera he was eager to “do what Paddy does best…tune women!”
Following Paddy was reality television’s ultimate hopeless romantic Cass Wood, and the adorable James Trethewise, who failed to win the heart of Sophie Monk but won the affection of Australia.
Controversial feather ruffler Cat Henesey-Smith has traded her love for Bali for a stint in the South Pacific, with the hope of finding love and overturning the negative public perception of her.
It didn’t take long for Conga line enthusiast Brittney Weldon’s arrival to have the rest of the Cobana in hysterics, with the highly-energised Brisbanite lusting over Bill’s salt and pepper locks.
Naughty Nathan Favro arrived into Paradise next, keen to show a different side to his personality after an unceremonious outing on Ali’s season. Alex Bordyukov from the 13th season of the American franchise followed Nathan, setting tongues wagging over his bronzed and buff physique.
Rachael Gouvignon arrived keen to give Paradise a second go, after failing to find romance last season.
The last girl to arrive on the island was Alisha Aitken-Radburn, who emerged as the commentator on the last season of The Bachelor Australia.
Brooke, Cass, Cat and Alisha decided to sit down and debrief about their season of The Bachelor Australia. Cat was quick to ask Brooke what happened between her and Nick, and in a shocking revelation, Brooke announced that on her last date with Nick he secretly stopped the cameras to tell her that he wasn’t going to pick anyone at the end.
A new day saw new drama start to surface with the revelation that Bill had been connecting with girls ahead of Paradise. Paddy decided to confront him about the rumours and things got more heated then a Fijian sunburn.
And just when you thought it couldn’t get juicier, former Bachelor Richie Strathan arrived ready to spice up Paradise.
