How Did We Miss Sophie Monk's Bachelorette Bombshell
When Sophie Monk was announced last night as this year’s Bachelorette most people were shocked. But Ten’s decision to choose such a high-profile suitor shouldn’t have been that surprising, especially following the emergence of a recent interview with Monk.
Speaking to Tom Gleeson on The Weekly it seems the cheeky radio star hinted at her new role. When asked if she wished she’d waited to appear on a reality show that people actually remembered, Monk responded:
“Yeah, I wish I was on one now… a cooler one.”
When pushed as to which one she’d prefer, the 37-year-old confidently said: “Bachelorette. I’m very single.”
This led Gleeson to question whether they had a Bachelorette for celebrities.
“No, they don’t,” Sophie replied.
“But I could be the first,” she continued.
And she was right! Sophie will follow in this footsteps of Sam Frost and Georgia Love when she attempts to find the love of her life on national TV this year. Speaking on the red carpet at the Logies last night, the former member of Bardot revealed she approached Bachelorette producers and the rest is history.
We can't wait to see Sophie find love.
