The Bachelor Australia has had some very interesting storylines unfold, but none quite as unexpected as this. Vakoo Kauapirura and Rachael Arahill have seemingly ditched this year's Bachelor Matt Agnew in favour of each other. New photos published on Monday show the reality TV stars on a date at a Sydney restaurant.

"Rachael and Vakoo formed a really strong friendship in the mansion and their feelings for each other quickly developed," a source said. "They ended up hooking up in the mansion one night after one of the first cocktail parties. It was never filmed and producers never found out about it."
“They started spending lots of time together after that. The girls would always see them together, going for walks alone, and started to question if they were more than friends but they never confirmed it."
The pair have been giving fans hints for weeks that there may have been something more than a friendship.
“Thankful we went on this crazy journey or I wouldn’t of met my soulmate,” Rachael captioned a photo of the pair to Instagram.
“I love you so much!” Vakoo replied.
Following her elimination, Vakoo all but confirmed in a cryptic Instagram post that she’d found love in the mansion. “I may not have found love with the Bach but I found love with some extraordinary women,” she wrote.
Rachael is still currently in the mansion, but its expected Matt asks her to leave after it comes to light she had been flirting with someone from the crew.
