The Bachelor’s Vanessa Sunshine posts expletive-ridden rant

After being rejected by the 'Honey Badger.'

The Bachelor’s Vanessa Sunshine didn’t receive a rose on Thursday night’s episode of the Channel Ten dating show, in favour of ‘arch-nemesis’ Romy Poulier. 

Now, the controversial reality contestant has released an expletive-ridden rant to her Instagram page, claiming she gives ‘zero f**ks’. 

Sunshine reveals she was proud to have avoided getting caught up in the mansion’s ‘clickeyness’, and added she just ‘simply wasn’t the person’ for Nick.

Speaking to the camera, Vanessa says: ‘I give zero f**ks.’

‘Nick just simply wasn’t the person for me.’

Referring to the rivalry with villains Romy Poulier and Cat Henesy, she added: ‘I was 100 per cent true to myself, did not get caught up in ‘clickyness’. 

‘And I own the resting b***h-face look,’ she finished. 

On top of the video message, Vanessa also wrote a lengthy paragraph about her experience on the show. 

I’m going to be extremely blunt “I will never ever put someone on a pedestal who hasn’t earned the right to be there.

‘My approach was a wild card, you’re used to watching women automatically fall for The Bachelor and scramble to profess their feelings, vying to be the last one standing to claim their (man) prize. Obviously I was a different kind of woman thrown into the mix this season. I was 100% true to myself, did not compromise my morals and values, get caught up in ‘clickyness’ or group dynamics that do not interest me.

‘I own the resting bitch face look, my sense of humour is very dry, sarcastic and a little bit cheeky.

My attitude is for lack of a better statement “I give zero f**ks” I simply don’t feel the need to justify myself to everybody, am very aware I’m “different”, always have been and I’m totally comfortable and ok with this fact because I know who I am, can back myself, know my value and worth and no one is going to take that from me.

‘When entering this experience I was looking for someone funny and genuine. A man who’s sincerity I don’t have to question and who doesn’t question mine. I want to be with someone who wants to build a life and future together, have children and create a loving family and this still applies.

‘However, I never had a preconceived idea that “The Bachelor” was “the one” for me it’s simply not my style and I was just trying suss out if he was or wasn’t for me.

‘I have the words “trust your intuition” tattooed on my inner forearm as a gentle reminder. My gut told me that this is what I needed to do, so I hit submit on that application form and was fortunate enough to be selected. Suppose my point at the end of the day is I’m a woman who was simply being myself and doing my own thing.

‘If my experience has shown just one person that’s it’s ok to be completely yourself, to back yourself, not put up with bullshit and stay true to you when faced with adversity, then for me everything was worth it. I am so grateful for this experience Nick just simply wasn’t the person for me, nor I the person for him and that’s ok 🙃 #TheBachelorAU

Despite starting off the series as the ‘villain’, following this weeks episodes viewers began to warm to Sunshine.
