Alisha Aitken-Radburn - Bachelor Australia - Season 6 - *Sleuthing Spoilers*

DM says she works in politics... and is potentially racist.  What.  The Hell.  If these allegations are true that is not cool, Ch 10.  Politicians are generally not popular in AU - she might have been cast as a villain.

EXCLUSIVE: Bachelor contestant trying to find love with Nick 'The Honey Badger' Cummins is Bill Shorten's former staffer Alisha Aitken-Radburn... who was allegedly involved in a race scandal

Another Bachelor contestant competing for the heart of sports star Nick 'The Honey Badger' Cummins has been revealed.

Daily Mail Australia can reveal that a former staffer for Opposition leader Bill Shorten, Alisha Aitken-Radburn, is trying her luck at the reality dating show.



The blonde beauty was also allegedly involved in a race scandal while at Sydney University, with 'complaints' made against her.  

According to her LinkedIn profile, Alisha says she is an 'advancer' for Bill Shorten in Canberra.  

A source told Daily Mail Australia that an email 'went around the office saying she has left to 'pursue a project'.  

The source also said she had recently broken up with her boyfriend Dean Shachar, a 'Vice President of the Young Liberals', who is an adviser for Pru Goward, according to his LinkedIn profile.



The writer also claims Alisha 'upset' some Facebook users in a post over comments she had made underneath a picture of two women in 'blackface'.

'The picture in the post was of two young white women in 'mud masks', dark faces in stark contrast to pallid necks, grinning into the camera,' the post claims.

'Some of the comments protested that this was blackface and, even if it was not intended to be blackface, the re-sharing and denial of Black women's critiques was incredibly offensive for many Black people.'

'Alisha called the above commenters 'ridiculous', told them to ''settle the f**k down'', and said it was ''also pretty upsetting to be accused of racism when you're a progressive women (sic)'',... She also stated that nobody had been offended by the photo, despite the fact that many on that thread had stated their outrage.'

The writer claimed she had posted her thoughts on this in a Wom*n's Collective page.

The writer claims Alisha then had a meeting with herself and a Wom*n's Collective officer and agreed to write a formal apology and a letter on Honi 'about the negative effects of blackface'.

The writer then added a Facebook post made by Alisha apologising for the comments about the 'blackface thread.'



Channel Ten told Daily Mail Australia on Friday: 'TEN will neither confirm or deny speculation about the identity of rumoured Bachelorettes on this season of The Bachelor Australia, and looks forward to revealing the contestants to viewers later this year.'

Thread for Alisha HERE. Not impressed with her being cast at at all  no no I won't be surprised if there's quite a few women cast for controversy and ratings hmmm

Thanks @AAL.  I agree, poor form casting her IMO.  As you have said before, it seems like from last season on Bach casting is going to be based more on BiP potential than compatibility with the Lead.

Ch 10 did similar with the Oldfields on IACGMOOH who IMO are both racists.  They got a very poor reception at camp and were voted out by the public within a week - I would have thought that might have sent a message to TPTB but apparently not.  

Back to Alisha... does anyone else find it weird that she isn't really smiling in any of her IG pics?  Maybe she's self-conscious about her teeth but it makes her look a bit smarmy and disingenuous, IMO.

This could go either way IMO - either they'll out her as a racist really early and she'll be one of the first to go, or they'll keep her around till mid-season "for the drama". Rolling Eyes Great idea taking the screenshot, @Dirty Street Pie. yes

So Alisha may be out? Either that, or she has limited access to social media. She has gone private now, so I can't post a screen shot, but she has decreased by one post, and increased followers and following by one.

That's good IMO - if they'd kept her around it would probably have been for "dramatic" purposes so better to just let her go early IMO.  Kind of feel bad for the girl - she quit her job to go on the show (and the position was advertised last week, so she's probably already been replaced) and for what?  A week on a reality TV show where your character can be manipulated into whatever the producers choose to portray.  Not a wise career move if you want to continue in the field of politics, IMO.

March 24th

If the account is private we can take a s/shot of it because that is public, everyone can see that. However if she was following anyone back, then we can't post any posts from the IG because it's private.

Saw a post about her from some old uni friends. Apparently she's "verbally abused" a fair few people - at a uni in a different state? They've also told me they aren't big fans. She seems like an interesting character to say the least.

I don't see her in that pic either.

Good sleuthing all around on Alisha. Looks like perhaps her crappy attitude ended her time on the show as per @quix uni comments, and @Bobette 's speculation. yes
