Last night, former Bachelorette Georgia Love publically addressed the rumours that this year's Bachelorette Sophie Monk is going on the show for fame, rather than to look for love.
While a guest on radio station 101.9's Schmunday Show, a listener called to talk about Monk, saying: "[The guys] going onto the show this year know that A) everyone knows who Sophie Monk is, B) she’s a celebrity and C) she might not really, really be there to find a husband."
Georgia quickly jumped to Sophie's defence, "I truly believe that Sophie does want to find someone, I really do believe that," she started.
The show's host, Jamila Rizvi, then pointed out, "She’s already on TV all the time."
"Also [Monk] has been unlucky in love, very publicly," Georgia continued. "Why can't she have the same go [as everyone else]?"
"I am a hopeless romantic," she said.
Though she believes Sophie is going on the show for the right reasons, Georgia did say this year's season would probably be a little different to the others.
"I think it's going to be an incredibly different season to ever before."
"I certainly had a lot of guys who very obviously not there [for the right reasons], and couldn't care less that I was part of the show."
"But I think it's going to be entertaining, that's the only thing I'm sure of," she finished.
