Bill Goldsmith was a early frontrunner on Ali Oetjen's season of The Bachelorette in 2018, receiving the first rose and the first kiss!
But the 32-year-old plumber quickly found himself at the centre of unwanted drama in the form of an ongoing feud with co-star Charlie Newling, and finished in the third place without winning the heart of his lady.
Ready to give love a chance once more, Bill is slated to appear on the upcoming Bachelor in Paradise 2019 where he will search for 'The One' on the white sands of Fiji.
Bill made headlines and caused consternation when he introduced Ali to his ex girlfriend Amy during the hometown visit phase of The Bachelorette.
After his elimination, the part-time model remarked that if his decision to introduce the two women was the reason he was sent home, "then we're probably not meant to be together, to be honest".

Of his elimination, he added: "It was a bit of a surprise but then again I don't know what [her] relationships are like with the other two guys."
"I was just focusing on our relationship - it's never easy to be rejected, but that's part of it. It doesn't always go your way, but it definitely hurt."
But Bill wasn't nursing his wounds for too long, as recent pap photos obtained by Daily Mail Australia revealed an unexpected romance between the tradie and his Bachelor in Paradise co-star, Alex Nation.
The pair were spotted sharing a steamy kiss on a park bench in Melbourne in early December, less than 24 hours after they returned from filming in Fiji.
Later that day, the unlikely duo were pictured walking Bill's French bulldog together.
