LOCAL BEAUTIES VIE FOR THE BACHELOR
TWO T Townsville beauties will vie for love against each other on national TV.
When the newest season of The Bachelor Australia starts tonight, locals may find they recognise two of the women fighting for Bachelor Matty J’s heart.
Townsville gym instructor Stacey Simpson, 26, was the 2015 Miss V8 Supercars Miss Personality, which she describes as her proudest achievement to date.
Monica Brown also hails from Townsville and was the Townsville Miss V8 2015 and national Miss V8 2015 runner- up.
Brown, once a fixture on the local model circuit, now works as a medical receptionist in Melbourne.
“My sister, mum and stepdad all live in Townsville,” she said. “I have a great family.” Brown, 26, said she planned to be herself to win the Bachelor’s heart.
