Brooke Blurton

Seems like a token gesture, but more diversity on TV is never a bad thing IMO.   

SPOILER ALERT: The Bachelor's Nick 'Honey Badger' Cummins jets to Perth for a home visit with Brooke Blurton - the FIRST EVER Indigenous contestant to make it to the final four

The Bachelor Australia has been criticised in the past for its lack of cultural diversity.

And it seems that the upcoming season will buck the trend, with an Indigenous contestant making it to the final four for the first time in the show's six year history.

New Bachelor Nick 'The Honey Badger' Cummins, 30, was pictured at Sydney Airport on Thursday before catching a flight to Perth, with a source telling Daily Mail Australia that he was there for a home visit with Brooke Blurton.

In Bachelor speak, a 'home visit' means a contestant's relationship with the show's leading man has progressed to the point where he meets her family.

In the past five seasons of the program, which is currently produced by Warner Bros. Australia, all the women who have made it to the final stages of the competition have been white.

Hailing from Perth, WA, Brooke is a Noongar / Yamatji woman who competed in the 2016 Miss NAIDOC Perth pageant.

The 21-year-old beauty also works as an administrative officer for the Ngaanyatjarra Council Aboriginal Corporation.

On-set photos reveal the reality TV lovebirds previously hit it off during a date which saw a shirtless Nick 'rescuing' Brooke while dressed a fireman.

As Nick held Brooke tightly in his arms, she slung her arms around the former Wallabies star's neck as they gazed into each other's eyes.



Spotted at Sydney Airport on Thursday, Nick dressed casually in striped jumper,  chinos and white sneakers.

With a backpack casually slung over his shoulders, Nick strolled through the terminal looking wide eyed and full of anticipation.

The rugby union star graciously posed for photos with sports fans at the airport before boarding his flight to Western Australia.

Brooke seems way too good for this show laugh out loud IMO Channel 10 approached her with an offer she couldn't refuse - Top 4 guaranteed and a platform to raise important Indigenous issues on national TV perhaps?  I look forward to seeing her on screen.

It is so refreshing to have a contestant who is doing something deep and meaningful with their lives.  I will be v disappointed if she is doing the Bachelor just for insta followers…
I'm on board with her laugh out loud

Oh look, Daily Mail just published a story based on the exact video I posted yesterday. What a remarkable co-incidence.  Rolling Eyes

Anyway... ITA @Agent99, Brooke is a cut above the usual contestant.  I can't imagine she applied for this - IMO, TPTB went hunting for an Indigenous girl to counter-act the claims from last year about the lack of diversity and hit the jackpot when they convinced her to be on the show.  I think her Insta will be far deeper than the shilling/fashion/cosmetics crap we usually see.

She seems totally switched on and I'm sure she will use this as a springboard to bring awesome things to her community. yes

@Bobette you should be asking for a cut on sales of the DM.
