Get Ready For Drama, ‘The Bachelor’s’ Zoe-Clare Reportedly Quits The Series This Week

Apparently due to the "toxic behaviour"

The Bachelor’s Zoe-Clare has already made quite the impression this season. First, the outspoken reality star kicked off this year’s drama with “Ranga-Gate” (whereby she claimed Areeba was targeting her due to the colour of her hair) and continues to stir the pot with other women in the mansion. 

But, the “bitchiness” unfolding on the Channel 10 dating series – which apparently has many viewers tuning out – is reportedly Zoe-Clare’s undoing this week. Reality TV podcast So Dramatic! claims that the red-headed beauty gets fed up and walks. 

“Zoe-Clare didn’t like the environment of the house, she thought it was super toxic,” podcast host Megan Pustetto revealed, adding, “she pulled the producers aside and said to them ‘there’s bullying in the house and it’s unacceptable’.” 

Apparently it all came to head when Zoe-Clare finally got her chance to speak to Locky at the cocktail party, but Juliette quickly interrupts them, which “riled Zoe-Clare up even more”.

Zoe-Clare goes back into the house and tells the others, “If Locky gives Juliette a rose after this, I’m done.”


The podcast goes on to allege that Zoe-Clare has a “massive meltdown” and Locky begs her to stay, but she eventually tells him she’s done with the show. 

“Juliette tries to drag Zoe-Clare into the drama and she says to her ‘don’t you dare try and play that game and shit talk about me,’” Pustetto claimed. 

Producers then reportedly forced Zoe-Clare to attend the rose ceremony, so it appears as though she wasn’t given a rose as opposed to leaving because of the drama unfolding in the mansion. 

While so far these are just rumours from sources, it’ll be interesting to watch the drama play out this week.

The newest bombshell comes just a week after eliminated contestant Nadine Kodsi appeared on the podcast to share some of her own experiences from the series. One of the main points she shared was how Locky and front-runner Bella made an “agreement” to end the series together. 


Nadine said: “I honestly think Bella is going to win and the reason why I think that is because I personally think it was set up.” 

“Apparently they met in Bali and she basically made an agreement to go on the show and then they’d be together,” she added. “Now it’s so obvious because if you were there on the night, I actually said ‘you are going to win’. I asked her ‘did you guys know each other beforehand’ and she said ‘no I’ve never met him’.”

While Nadine’s allegation is just that, an allegation, it wouldn’t be farfetched to think that Bella and Locky had crossed paths in the past, but she has since come out to deny their “agreement”. 

Speaking to the Herald Sun, Varelis said she was completely confused by Kodsi’s claim.

“I haven’t been to Bali in five years and it genuinely baffles me the lengths people will go to,” she said. “I’d never even watched Survivor.”

She continued, “I didn’t even have a conversation with Nadine. I don’t listen to it [podcast] because 99 per cent of it would be complete bulls**t.”
