Cosmopolitan and Tinder Bachelor of the Year season is almost upon us! This week, the Cosmo team was joined by some special guests, including Jen Hawke and Simone Ormesher from The Bachelor Australia, and new Miss Universe Australia Olivia Rogers, at Beta Bar in Sydney for the official judging lunch.
There were some amazing and hilarious revelations at the lunch. It turns out Jen, who really stirred the pot on Matty J’s season, had already slept with two of the nominees. Another guy in the running is someone you’ll be familiar with: Jake Ellis from Georgia Love’s season of The Bachelorette Australia. Funnily enough, Jen’s also dated him! They’re just mates now. It was almost like he was at the lunch too, since Jen FaceTimed him in.
By the end of the event, the judges narrowed down 60 BOTY contenders to just 30. You’ll get to see the finalists in the January issue of Cosmo, and then voting will open up to choose the winner! So stay tuned for that.
For now, here’s an inside look at the lunch.
