AFTER each episode, we ask The Bachelor Australia’s host with the most to answer five of our burning questions about the show.
Read on for Osher Gunsberg’s take on the change in group date strategy, who has taken on the mantle of most competitive in The Bachelor mansion and whether any food hygiene standards were breached.
1. We have to talk about Alex and Richie’s chocolate bath. Was that the most unhygienic date in Bachelor history?
“As far as I know, no breaches of food standards were made when immersing Richie and Alex into 300 litres of liquid chocolate. I’m not sure what we did with it after they were done, but I’m nearly 100 per cent sure it was not eaten by anyone.”
2. There’s been a real shift over the group dates with the girls now saying they WANT to go on them. Is this usually about the time it happens on Bachelor? And if so, what do you put it down to?
“It’s never the same from season to season, but yes it happens. I’d imagine it’s the women seeing that there’s very limited time left in the mansion and they want to make that time count.”
3. With Keira gone, who emerged as the most competitive person at the Highland Games?
“Richie was easily the most competitive person there. It was wickedly fun to tease him that he couldn’t throw a bag of hay over a pole. I don’t know if that makes me a bad person.”
4. The girls all looked incredibly glamorous at this episode’s rose ceremony. Did they put extra effort in so that Richie would forget the sight of them scoffing haggis?
“The ladies most definitely looked fabulous, but I can’t say if it was for that reason. Perhaps Richie was into watching women eat meat with their hands? I will have to ask him next time I see him.”
5. Last but not least, what can we expect to see next week, Osher?
“Richie being the competitive man that he is has put together another contest — and this time everyone gets dirty.”
