However, someone who has been there, done that, and knows a thing or two about the process reckons there is one reported front-runner we can rule out – and there’s one major reason why.
So remember that story last week where Cass was spotted wearing a ring on that finger looking like the cat who got the cream? Sure you do. Well, according to former Bachelor contestant-turned-Australia's first Bachelorette, Sam Frost, there’s no way that’s the ring because the moment filming stops, the sparkler goes on lockdown until the show finishes.
“The ring used in the finale is taken away by producers almost immediately after filming stops and is locked in a safe,” the Bachelor alum told Mamamia.
“There is no way the ‘winner’ would be allowed anywhere near it until after the finale airs.”
And Sam would know, despite famously being dumped by bad-boy Bachelor Blake Garvey just days after the final rose ceremony, before it all went pear-shaped she received a ring.
So then this must also debunk rumours of another possible winner who was seen wearing a diamond ring…
She also says the producers would be “pretty annoyed” at her Instagram Stories if she was the winner.
Ok then, back to the drawing board…
