She sent shockwaves around Australia when it was announced she was set to be the first celebrity Bachelorette.
And with filming of the reality show now underway, New idea has obtained exclusive pictures of Sophie Monk’s first date. And boy, does it look awkward!
Despite pinning her hopes on finding The One on the reality dating show, it looks like the 37-year-old’s first solo match-up is a bit of a dud.
Sitting under an arch of flowers with smartly dressed hunk Jarrod Woodgate, a sullen Sophie appears stand- offish as her date tries his best to entertain her.
At one point, she is even cajoled into loosening up – with a producer forcibly making the radio star uncross her arms, before handing her a glass of wine to lighten her up.
Earlier in the day, Sophie and her mystery man had attempted a rope-assisted climb to the top of a lighting tower overlooking Sydney’s Olympic Park. Yet, Sophie’s nerves got the better of her and she was seen panicking, before demanding to be taken down.
These images will do nothing to dispel the rumours that the latest season of the hit reality show is turning out to be something of a disaster.
Plagued by whispers of diva behaviour and outrageous on-set demands, Sophie is said to have Bachelorette head honchos seriously concerned about their decision to make her the star of the show.
