Let’s be real here. After Sam Cochrane proposed to Tara Pavlovic at the end of last season’s finale, it’s highly unlikely the Bondi boy will be making a second appearance to Paradise but… we guess anything can happen in reality TV. Also the fact that Sam’s named on the Sportsbet list makes us wonder if they know something we don’t? He isn’t on the list of contestants for the 2019 series, but he could make a late appearance, so he's in the running. Watch this space.
At least we know Richie Strahan is actually heading to Paradise, and we’ve also seen that he gets caught up in a 'love square' in which Cass plays a part. Oh, and there’s the teaser we’ve seen where Cass and Richie spend a date at the beach together. Could everything be pointing to Cass and Richie getting their happily ever afters with each other? Sportsbet seem to think he's in with a shot.
Firefighter Cam Cranley seems to be on the list and he's another Sportsbet wildcard. Unfortunately it’s highly unlikely that Cam is Cass’s man, given that he went public with a new relationship last year. And a quick stalk of the Perth boy’s Instagram show’s the pair are still very much a couple. So we’re not buying that he’d be heading into Paradise anytime soon. Save your money on this one.
Now we’re getting to the more serious players. James Trethewie features heavily in Cass’s finding love promo. But could it be a TV trick? well, this Instagram is certainly telling as it shows the lonely boy in Cass's backyard - not literally but you know he's in Manly.
We also saw a lot of our favorite Nathan Favro in the clip, talking about how his “eyes are drawn to her, and she’s stunning.” Again, he is another local Manly boy who could've quite possibly snatched up Cass's heart, only time will tell.
