Bachelorette’s Michael Turnbull Tries To Get A Date On Radio
Poor Michael Turnbull can’t catch a break. First, he was rejected by Sam Frost, then hounded by A Current Affair and now he’s been dumped live on radio. Ouch!
Alongside Aaron from First Dates and a listener, the former Socceroo competed for the heart of blonde beauty Sophie, in a radio dating segment as part of 97.3 FM’s Valentine’s At First Sight.
The catch was Sophie was blindfolded and had to choose purely based on personality. Lucky listener Cameron was picked, but after the blindfolds were removed Sophie admitted she was more attracted to Aaron.
Michael took it all in his stride telling The Daily Mail Australia, “she was lovely but not for me.”
The former Bachelor contestant admitted he’s looking to ‘settle down’ and still trying to find his perfect girl. “
I'm finding it very hard after the show even now to have a relationship given the media always following my love life,” he told The Daily Mail Australia.
'The media attention adds extra challenges in the early days of any potential relationship I have even when I try to keep them private,' he said
He’s previously been linked to Politix store manager Dina Pinteric and former Bachelorette contestant, Keira Maguire.
