Sam Cochrane 'finds himself in Bali', and pass me the bucket

Eye rolls all around.

Sam Cochrane won us over as the goofy, loved-up, lol-inducing lad on Bachelor in Paradise, when he famously wooed the nation's sweetheart, Tara Pavlovic. There were even genuine tears when he got down on one knee and proposed to Tarz! But that all fell to shit when the couple broke up in June, and now we're unsure about Sammy…

While Tara has been keeping busy with work and family, Sam has been riding the old free-shit-for-being-on-telly train, hitting up Splendour (along with BIP buddies Elora, Megan and Jake) and now he's gallivanting around Bali with Luke McLeod.

During his trip he may have spoiled this season's ending of The Bachelor, but he's also managed to "find peace". How very #woke of him…

He took to Instagram with a pic of him floating in a pool and captioned it with this:

"Every single moment these days reminds me that life has a very strange way of completely working out. I've found peace and made sure to keep my heart filled with love. I'm so thankful. The people that I've met and the moments shared show me that there are always angels out there. To anyone going through anything hard — remember that there is always a silver lining and people that want to smile with you. Just allow it. Life is incredible."

While it might just be that he's having an #enlighteninggapyear moment, we can't help but think this is a message to Tara as he preaches on about finding peace and keeping his "heart filled with love".

Let's see if Tarz comes back with anything of a similar ilk, as she's off to Europe next week. Silently praying for a sarcastic #findingmyselfineurope post…
