The Bachelor’s Locky Gilbert landed himself in hot water with producers for a very unexpected reason.
Speaking to J.Mo Confidential podcast this week, the former Australian Survivor star, 30, said that despite reports he was scolded for kissing multiple women, it was actually because producers didn’t want him getting injured while outdoors.
‘[Producers] pretty much said, ‘You’re the head guy, we can’t have you jumping off of a building and going ‘splat”, he confessed.
Describing himself as an ‘adventurous dude,’ Locky said that producers didn’t want him ‘doing crazy stuff.’
He added about the rumours about locking lips with too many women: ‘It is not true I got into trouble, it is true that I was kissing a few girls.’
‘I’m a loveable dude, I like being physical, I like getting to know people.’
On Wednesday meanwhile, Locky told KIIS FM’s Kyle and Jackie O Show that this season of The Bachelor will be ‘pretty clean.’
He denied bedding any of the women during filming.
When asked by host Kyle Sandilands if there was any ‘rooting’ in the mansion, the 30-year-old insisted that no funny business went down.
‘Nah, nothing like that. We’re not like America, we keep it all pretty clean,’ he insisted, adding: ‘You’d get crucified if you did.’
‘If you do it with one and then it comes out, and then you end up with another person you’re just asking for trouble.’
However, the Australian Survivor hunk did confirm that he had consummated his relationship with the winner.
He said that the couple had consummated their relationship during a ‘secret rendezvous’ away from the cameras.
Interestingly, Locky hasn’t spent any time with his winner since production wrapped.
‘We had the rendezvous after the show, but because of COVID-19 and being locked up in a house in Perth, we haven’t seen each other yet and it doesn’t look likely to see each other until after the show,’ he said.
Kyle then asked: ‘This rendezvous when you spent the night with each other, is that when you took it to the next level?’
Locky responded: ‘Use your imagination, Kyle. It’s been a long year.’
