It's only been a few days since Channel 10 announced that former Bachelor star Elly Miles AND her sister Becky would appear as dual Bachelorettes for the 2020 season, and while the decision has been met with mixed reviews, we haven't even had to wait until the series started filming to get some serious tea.
Elly had already appeared on The Bachelor during Matt Agnew's season, but her sister Becky is a newcomer to the series. By way of introduction, Network 10 revealed that she had "recently had her heartbroken", but according to radio host Ed Kavalee that's not exactly the case.
Speaking on the Hughesy and Ed show, the radio host claimed on-air that Becky was in a relationship that ended purely so she could appear on the reality show.
“The person that she was with found out she was doing this show from the press,” Kavalee said.

Asking for clarification, Dave Hughes said: “So he thought he was in a relationship with the older sister and he’s found out that he’s no longer in a relationship with her when he saw the press release that she was on The Bachelorette?”
“Yes,” Kavalee responded, adding that he was told by "people deep in reality TV" that it was the producers who came up with the new concept for the season.
“Elly got in first [as the Bachelorette],” he told his co-host. “It’s then been brought up, ‘What about the sister? Let’s try.’ So then behind the scenes, she [Becky] gets across the line and then goes [to her boyfriend], ‘You’re out!’”
Kavalee finished by claiming Becky's now ex-boyfriend was "devastated".
Becky hasn't responded to this bombshell, and as we know, there are always two sides to every story.
