If The Bachelor's Zac Franich doesn’t already look a bit lost, tonight three intruders crash the party — the first time the New Zealand show has added additional love interests part-way through the series.
And despite being away on their first overseas jaunt in tropical Asia, not everyone’s happy.
Spy has discovered the Bachelorette claws are out for the unwelcome intruders, who will stay on to compete for The Bach’s affections if he gives them a rose.
Spy got a peek at one of the intruders: Vanessa, a 26-year-old saleswoman from Christchurch.
Her mother’s best friend made her look for love on national TV, although she was a little uncertain when she made it as an intruder and not a true Bachelorette.
“I met the other intruders when I landed in Auckland en-route to our new secret overseas destination. I thought ‘Crikey, these girls are stunning . . . Am I really up for this? Do I meet the standard?’”
And how about Franich? “I thought, ‘WOW! This guy is a strong unit, he clearly works out and looks after himself’. Yes, he’s good looking but I’m intrigued to find out more about this man.”
Vanessa wasn’t quite prepared for the Bachelorettes’ reactions. “The girls were really shocked when we walked in, they had no idea what was going on. One of the girls even thought we might be waitresses delivering more drinks!
“I was surprised by how young a lot of the girls are, I’m 26 but the age difference feels a lot bigger than what it is. There was definitely one girl who made no attempt the whole night to speak to me, not even a hello!”
