We're only two episodes into the Sophie Monk season of The Bachelorette, and already there are rumours spreading about the contestants. The latest goss to hit the interwebs comes courtesy of The Daily Mail, and a story about current front-runner Sam Cochrane.
An unnamed source and former Bumble date reportedly told the publication that the contestant had a "habit" of using the apps without thinking. The source also said he would get bored and scroll endlessly through apps in search of ladies. In all honesty, this sounds like a standard scrolling habit for about half of Australia so we're not all too convinced that Sam is the bad boy of online dating.
However, the publication also pointed out that a Twitter user had called out Sam for currently being active on multiple dating apps.
"This guy has shown up on the dating apps a lot recently," she wrote. "Thinking he doesn't make it to the end..."
The Daily Mail suggested that this tweet might reveal his fate on the show - AKA losing big time.
Meanwhile, the publication followed up today by speaking with another anonymous Tinder date.
"He was a total jerk - would call and text constantly. He was in love with me after two days. It was a huge red flag," the source said. "He was immature, so much so I blocked him."
We can't say much for these unconfirmed online-dating reports, but we can say Australia seems rather appalled by Sam's behaviour on the show last night. For the funniest Twitter reactions to Sam's strange antics, and the episode in general, click here.
