As filming for the second season of Bachelor In Paradise gets underway, New idea obtains FIRST PHOTOS of Richie Strahan on set.
Baring his muscle bound physique the former rope technician looks relaxed and happy as he chats among his cast members Bill Goldsmith and Nathan Farvolo.
Wearing pale blue board shorts and a black baseball cap, the handsome reality TV star is seen checking out the surroundings in the tropical island in Fiji.
Richie is also seen talking to Bachelor villain Alisha as he walks through the grounds.
He became known for his fiery relationship with Alex Nation and is hoping to once again find love on another reality TV show.
In a trailer the Perth native has been seen coming to blows with his ex Alex as they argue about how their relationship ended.
In the promo for the upcoming show, Richie is heard saying: 'The circumstances of our break-up were quite brutal.'
'I don't know if Australia is ready for the grubby details surrounding it.'
Alex is equally dismissive of her former flame stating: 'Richie and I do not talk anymore and I do not want to meet him in Paradise.'
But as soon as the pair meet, they waste no time in coming to loggerheads.
'Do you want to go there Rich?' the single mum yells.
'Don't beat around the bush Alex, because you're not going to like my response.' Richie retorts.
'So you're honestly sitting there saying you were perfect in our relationship?' Alex fires back.
'Don't put words in my mouth!' Richie yells.
'It was me! I actually can't believe that you were telling me, it was me.' Alex says.
Alex and Richie fell in love on The Bachelor in 2016 when the model said she fell for him with 'every fibre of her being'.
Less than a year later she began a relationship with her footy mate Maegan Luxa.
