Twenty-four women entered the Bachelor mansion hoping to win Locky Gilbert’s heart – and now we know the five who make it to the end of the season.
Photos taken on set in Oxford Falls, Sydney, on July 7 show the former Australian Survivor star handing out roses at the last rose ceremony before hometown week.
Five women were pictured on the grounds of the estate: Irena Srbinovska, Kaitlyn Hoppe, Bella Varelis, Izzy Sharman-Firth and another unknown contestant – possibly an intruder who hasn’t debuted on the show yet.
It’s unclear which contestant was sent home.
Bella and Irena’s place in the top five isn’t surprising, as they’ve both been tipped as favourites for weeks.
During the red carpet introductions, which aired last Wednesday, Locky was left speechless when nurse Irena, 31, stepped out of the limousine.
Bella, 25, also impressed the thrill-seeker upon meeting him for the first time.
Meanwhile, Izzy made an unforgettable entrance when she had an asthma attack during the show’s premiere.
Kaitlyn, a latecomer who debuted in episode two, and the new blonde intruder are the most surprising inclusions in the final five.
As of Friday morning, Sportsbet is tipping nurse Irena ($1.65) to win Locky’s heart. TAB has even shorter odds, offering $1.40.
The photos obtained by Daily Mail Australia show the glamorous women preparing for the rose ceremony – the last before hometown week.
Irena showed off her incredible figure in a red leopard print dress with sheer sleeves, while Bella looked stunning in a plunging black frock.
Izzy flaunted her slender frame in a thigh-split gown, which she paired with statement earrings.
Kaitlyn also dressed to impress in a blue wrap dress, and the unidentified intruder turned heads in a silk lilac gown.
Locky, who looked dapper in a grey suit, appeared nervous as he paced around the courtyard before the rose ceremony.
He was seen speaking with producers and a makeup artist, then made his way inside for the elimination.
Locky eliminated three contestants on Wednesday night’s episode of The Bachelor: Georgina Glass, Leilani Vakaahi, and Marlaina McPhillips.
There was no rose ceremony on Thursday.
