With five favourties from the Bachelor and Bachelorette already confirmed to appear in the new reality spinoff Bachelor in Paradise, another possible contender has been named and we’re genuinely stunned.
Blake Colman, who threw an adult tantrum when dumped by Sophie Monk on last season of the hit show, is rumoured to be joining the Bachelor in Paradise cast.
As New Idea reports, Colman has signed on for the series, along with Eden Schwencke, Luke McLeod, Mack Reid and Sam Cochrane.
If you’re scratching your head over why Channel Ten might have asked the ‘villain’ to return for a second chance—we’re asking ourselves the same question.
After he was eliminated from the show, it was revealed that Colman had pleaded guilty to assaulting a man in 2015 during a night out.
The victim, 31-year-old Tristan Cooper, told Perth Now that Colman “just came running up and with all his body weight sort of grabbed me in the back of the head and threw me into the side of Hungry Jack’s.”
Channel 10 would not confirm or deny reports that Colman was returning to the network for another shot at love.
“Laurina, Keira, Tara, Davey, Michael and Apollo have been confirmed as the first six Bachelor in Paradise participants,” Ten told Mail Online.
“Ten will neither confirm or deny further speculation, but can reveal that many more of Australia’s favourite Bachelor characters are ready to head to the tropical resort in Paradise. Let the games of love begin.”
