We’ve known that Survivor’s Locky Gilbert is going to be our new Bachelor for less than a week and there’s already rumours circulating.
And if true, no doubt this is going to cause some serious drama for Locky both in and out of the Bachie mansion.
The wild rumour claims that Locky dumped his girlfriend just two days before signing on to be Channel 10’s leading man on the reality dating show.
And no, we’re not talking about Brooke… It’s ANOTHER girl!

There’s no denying I’ve had some incredible, heart-stopping experiences for both work and fun, but this takes the cake. Pack your bags Australia, I am beyond excited to be announced as this year’s Bachelor and cannot wait to share this epic romantic adventure with you all. @thebachelorau #thebachelorau
A friend of Locky’s alleged ex has spoken to Woman’s Day, claiming that Locky dumped her friend two days before being placed into lockdown by The Bachelor producers.
The insinuation was that he only broke up with the girl so that he could go on the show…
“She was devastated! Getting dumped by any means is horrible, but finding out he’s The Bachelor… it was a big blow to her,” the anonymous friend reportedly told Woman’s Day.
“She was absolutely smitten with him – they shared a really special bond… she thought he was The One.”
This comes after Locky has already copped some heat for the way he apparently handled things with his romance with his Survivor co-star Brooke Jowett.
While the pair seemed smitten on the show, it seemed that things didn’t eventuate in the real world after Locky was named Bachelor.
But then Brooke came out on her Instagram account to say that she was completely “hurt” and “blindsided” by the news of Locky’s new TV role and even seemed to claim that she’d already booked a holiday to go and visit him in Bali, where he lives.

My side of our story. Yes, I’m hurt and a little blindsided (excuse the pun) but I wish the best for Locky, I always will 💕 (Secretly I hope he stacks it and splits his pants on day one) Haha. I guess we had different things planned in our heads for what was to come over the next few months but you can’t be mad at someone for doing what they feel is best for them, even if it does sting a little. In no way am I or is my Survivor experience defined by Locky or any other man. I was never hiding in his shadow in the game and I won’t be hiding in his shadow now. But I will always cherish those times we shared, it was an amazing life experience. Thank you all for your supportive messages ❤ I know I have bigger and better things in store (maybe not bigger actually, Locky is pretty bloody big) but definitely better. I hope he finds what he’s looking for🌹 P.S It looks like I’m now going solo to Bali next month. Any takers? #survivorau #survivor2020
No word yet on when Locky’s season of The Bachelor will air but no doubt it will be later this year with filming set to start pretty soon!
