Yoga shapes up el­i­gi­ble con­tes­tant

Pilbara News - - News - Tom Zaun­mayr

■ Hav­ing seen the poor male to fe­male ra­tio in the Pil­bara, one for­mer Kar­ratha fly-in, fly-out worker seem­ingly loved it so much he has gone and joined a re­al­ity TV show where the ra­tio is five times worse.

Kayne Buik is vy­ing for Sam Frost’s heart on Chan­nel 10’s re­al­ity TV se­ries The Bach­e­lorette.

One of Mr Buiks’ more mem­o­rable mo­ments to date came on the first episode when, af­ter brag­ging he could hold a head­stand for 20 sec­onds, he barely made one sec­ond be­fore tum­bling over.

It was a mo­ment his for­mer yoga teacher in Kar­ratha Vi­tal­ity Health coach Bianca Ma­cLach­lan cringed at, as she claims she had seen the el­i­gi­ble Bach­e­lor hold­ing a head­stand for more than 30 sec­onds dur­ing her ses­sions.

“He started see­ing me in Jan­uary and we fin­ished up around May just be­fore they started film­ing for the Bach­e­lorette,” she said.

“I was cheer­ing him on be­cause I know he can do head­stands.

“I guess the pres­sure got to him and the suit maybe wasn’t very ideal for that sit­u­a­tion.”

Mrs Ma­cLach­lan said Mr Buik started yoga to help get his life back on track af­ter go­ing through a hard time early in the year. “For Kayne yoga helped to get him in shape but also go­ing onto some­thing like na­tional TV in a high stress en­vi­ron­ment I hope it is help­ing to keep him calm and bal­anced,” she said.

“Yoga seems like such a fe­male-ori­en­tated thing but is so good for guys too, whether they’re play­ing sport, go­ing to the gym or lift­ing weights it is such a per­fect ac­com­pa­ni­ment.

“Kayne is a re­ally nice guy. I don’t think it could hap­pen to any­one bet­ter if he won.”

Mrs Ma­cLach­lan said she was not sure if the rose tat­too posted on Mr Buiks In­sta­gram ac­count was a sign of his suc­cess in woo­ing Sam Frost.
