Brooke Blurton is an Aussie youth worker and media personality who has made waves in the world of reality television. Known for her appearances on “The Bachelor” and “Bachelor in Paradise“, Brooke also made history as the first Indigenous and bisexual lead on “The Bachelorette“.
In this article, we’ll explore Brooke’s journey, from “The Bachelor”, to her dating life, and her latest ventures.
Brooke’s Journey on “The Bachelor” Franchise
Back in 2018, Brooke burst onto the scene as a contestant on the sixth Australian season of “The Bachelor”. She was in the running for the heart of former rugby player Nick Cummins and even made it to the final three before gracefully exiting the competition. Little did we know, this was just the beginning of her reality TV journey.
Fast forward to 2019, and Brooke was back on our screens, this time on “Bachelor in Paradise Australia”. Her appearances on these shows only added to her growing fame, making her a household name. But it was her stint on “The Bachelorette” that truly left a mark.
Brooke Blurton Makes “Bachelorette” History
Blurton made history when she became the first Indigenous and bisexual lead on the seventh Australian season of “The Bachelorette”. The show featured both male and female contestants vying for her heart, breaking the traditional mould of the show.
However, Brooke’s journey on “The Bachelorette” wasn’t without its share of controversy. Her decision to leave the show with her partner, Darvid Garayeli, sparked intense debate among fans. Unfortunately, their relationship didn’t stand the test of time and ended just three months after the show’s finale.
