The latest season of the hit TV show The Bachelorette is set to make history when it airs on Channel 10 on Wednesday night, starring the series’ first bisexual love interest, Brooke Blurton. The proud Noongar-Yamatji woman from Western Australia is also the first Indigenous lead to feature on the show. 

Brooke works with vulnerable young people and is passionate about making a real difference in the lives of those experiencing mental health issues.

“I am so ready for this. I’ve done it twice before and now, having the opportunity to choose my person and who I want in my life, is a truly unique and special experience,” Brooke said about the upcoming season. 

Let’s hope third time’s the charm as Brooke left both The Bachelor season six and Bachelor In Paradise season two single.
