Coming for blood, Doran commented on an Instagram post by Bachie Memes AU that compared the men and their suits, writing: “Not much money in a show that gets 500,000 viewers an episode, and less ratings than Antiques Roadshow.”
But while Doran seems adamant that his beloved suit was recycled for Gilbert, a closer analysis performed by Bachie Memes AU has spotted that Doran's suit has actually been a style staple since 2017—two years before he was even on the show.
Prior to Doran's appearance on the show, the infamous navy tuxedo has been worn by four other men, including: Josh Cox from Angie Kent's season of The Bachelorette, Dan Hobley from Ali Oetjen's season, plus Eden Schwenke and Stu Laundy from Sophie Monk's season.
Doran's accusations against Network 10 come soon after he revealed his plans to take legal action against the network and Warner Bros. Australia due to his poor portrayal on the show.
"This is not the news I wanted to post, but I feel I owe this to at least my family, friends, and also fans of The Bachelorette and Bachelor in Paradise," Jamie wrote back in July.
"After lengthy consideration, I've decided to begin legal proceedings against Network 10 and Warner Bros Australia.
"I'm not going to comment on this any further for the time being and would appreciate it if people would respect my privacy."
