The first episode of The Bachelor In Paradise Australia is here and it's a doozy!
The season kicked-off with the familiar introductions to the returning hopefuls (the highlight of which, was Tara Pavlovic telling Osher she was most excited to see his HAIR).
Florence Alexandra and Tara reunite and we've already decided they're the best two on the show.
We also find out that Florence and Jake Ellis have "hooked-up" the past, except Flo likes Davey now because he fits her criteria of the perfect man–hot and funny. Davey sort of likes Leah Costa but also has major heart-eyes for Flo. He can't make a move on Florence though because he's already pledged his allegiance to Jake and won't violate the bro-code. Holy moly, we have a love a square.
Once everyone has arrived, Osher gathers all the ex-Bachelor and Bachelorette contestants to give them the first date card, and of course it goes to Davey.
Davey picks Leah, naturally Florence is pissed-off and cue the drama. Tara decides to warn her best-gal about Jake's bad reputation telling her, "everyone has a Jake Ellis story..."
The next morning, everyone's chill until Keira Maguire arrives.
Jake receives the next card and chooses Flo. Davey is heartbroken after his lukewarm date with Leah, realising he made the wrong choice. Flo starts yelling to Jake and Davey but also no one in particular: "You're both idiots. I'd rather spend time with myself."
Until the next episode...
