Harry hopes to be So­phie’s choice

Sunday Mail - - CONFIDENTIAL -

THERE might be a 13year age gap, but SA bach­e­lor Harry Far­ran doesn’t see it as a hur­dle in woo­ing So­phie Monk on the up­com­ing series of The Bach­e­lorette.

“I’m a bit younger than her, but if it doesn’t bother her then it doesn’t bother me,” he says.

Harry would have been just seven when So­phie first burst on to our screens in 2000, then au­di­tion­ing for her place in the Aussie girl group Bar­dot.

Seven­teen years later, and So­phie is about to put her heart on the line when The Bach­e­lorette starts air­ing on Chan­nel 10 this week. “To think one of these guys might be ‘the one’. It feels like a fairy­tale. I feel like Cin­derella and I’m go­ing to meet my prince!” she says.

De­scrib­ing him­self as “happy, play­ful, easy­go­ing, en­er­getic and chatty”, Harry, who works as a res­tau­rant man­ager, says in the mar­ket for some­one who can show him “loy­alty, hon­esty, love, af­fec­tion and a damn good time”.

Al­though they are usu­ally happy to pa­rade around the new Bach­e­lor and Bach­e­lorettes each year, Ten reps were a lit­tle shy when asked for an in­ter­view with Harry this week, pro­vid­ing just a short Q&A in­stead and re­fus­ing to an­swer ques­tions.

Film­ing for The Bach­e­lorette took place ear­lier this year and it’s al­ready been re­ported that So­phie is still very much in love with the man she ended up with.

But don’t ex­pect her to be tun­ing in when the show fi­nally goes to air this week.

“No way, I’m not at all,” she says when asked if she would be watch­ing. “It’s so em­bar­rass­ing. I usu­ally act or pre­tend to be some­one else but this is way too hon­est. No one wants to see them­selves un­fil­tered.”
