The Bachelorette star Sasha Mielczarek has opened up for the first time about his 18-month relationship with radio host Sam Frost who he famously fell in love with on the hit show in 2015.
But not all fairytales have happy endings. “And now here I am on my own!” the NSW South Coast–based construction manager, 31, whose split with the bubbly 27-year-old was announced on Dec. 27 tells WHO.
“It’s been a pretty tough couple of months,” he acknowledges.
On top of mourning the end of his relationship (he tells that he hasn’t really spoken to Frost since the split) he was also grieving the sudden passing of his grandmother Roma. But with the help of family and friends, including fellow The Bachelorette contestant Dave Billsborrow—they met up the day before while he was in Sydney for work—“I’m feeling much better.”
And he says despite the rumours, things between him and Frost ended amicably and their love was real. “Sam and I fell in love. And I still love her. She’s an amazing person.
