Keira and Jarrod are hooking up on 'Bachelor in Paradise', proving dreams do come true

Not our dreams — hers!

By Jessica Chandra

There are a multitude of reasons as to why former rejects contestants from The Bachelor Australia and The Bachelorette Australia would want a second shot at love by doing on Bachelor in Paradise Australia.

For some, they really want the chance to fall in love again - in beautiful Fiji, surrounded by cameras, and with other contestants who potentially want to cut their grass. Who said falling in love was drama-free?

For others, they may just want to extend their 15 minutes of fame, or may have had some spare annual leave days and thought, 'Why not!'

Keira Maguire, the 'villain' of Richie Strahan's season of The Bachelor in 2016, seems to fall into the former category.

Paparazzi photos from the Bachelor in Paradise set have shown that Keira is smooching none other than Jarrod Woodgate - yes, the Jarrod who became obsessed with Sophie Monk on The Bachelorette this year, and actually made it all the way to her top two, only to have his heart broken right at the end (funnily enough, in Fiji).

But after heartbreak comes a second chance at reality TV love, and it looks like Keira and Jarrod have found that with each other. If you think this seems like the most random, WTF hook-up possible, Keira has actually had the hots for Jarrod for a while.

She told Cosmo a few months ago - like before she'd been officially cast in the show, and was only "in talks" with producers - that Jarrod was her dream man.

"Jarrod is a real gentleman and holds a lot of qualities that I look for in a man," she said.

Is Keira proof that what you think about, you bring about?

All we can say is: YES. Because we can't wait to see this romance play out on TV in 2018.
