Apparently, ‘The Bachelor’s’ Bella Varelis Has Been Linked To Multiple ‘Bachelorette’ Contestants

Including one from the US version of the show

While she may be the front-runner for Locky Gilbert’s heart on 2020’s season of The Bachelor Australia, it seems that Bella Varelis is no stranger to the Bachie universe.

If recent reports are anything to go by, the 25-year-old freelance creative has apparently got multiple ties with show, with links to three former Bachelorette contestants —including a US one — before becoming a part of the franchise herself.

Ready for a breakdown? Good, ’cause here it comes.

According to reality TV gossip site The Wash, Bella has previously dated Sam Johnson, who appeared on Georgia Love’s season of The Bachelorette, who later went on to date Noni Janur from Richie’s season of The Bachelor.

The pair reportedly dated back in 2015, and apparently tried a second time after he returned from filming the series.

Per The Wash, Bella is also close to another contestant from Georgia Love’s season, namely Courtney Dober, who was seen at her 25th birthday party (pictured below).

The outlet also reported that Bella has ties to Dean Michael Unglert, an ex-contestant from the US version of The Bachelorette. The pair were spotted together in January 2019, taking photos at the beach and around various site-seeing spots in Sydney Harbour, and had previously shared a selfie while hanging out with New Zealand Bachelorette Lily McManus.

“Did Deanie babes help with this one?” Lily commented on Bella’s picture, which was taken in the same spot as Dean’s.

“He had some contribution, I did most of the hard work,” Bella wrote back.

Ex-Bachelorette contestants aside, Bella is reportedly also friends with Matty J season-winner Laura Byrne and has previously been seen interacting with Locky’s ex-girlfriend, Survivor’s Brooke Jowett, at events.

Whether Bella’s past or supposed connections will come up on the show remains to be seen, however Twitter has already decided that Bella is going to win The Bachelor, with multiple clues and theories about the contestant already circulating online.
