BACH STRAIN

Townsville Bulletin - - NEWS -

KEEN view­ers of The Bach Bach­e­lorl couldld have seen the writ­ing on the wall for our two Townsville can­di­dates, Stacey Simpson and Mon­ica Brown, when they didn’t even war­rant much screen time on the pre­miere of the show on Wed­nes­day night.

Sure enough they were the first two con­tes­tants to be knocked out, never even get­ting to set­tle into the Bachie man­sion be­fore they were shown the door. But did you spot the other cu­ri­ous thing about Stacey’s ap­pear­ance?

She en­tered the show wearing her 2015 Miss Per­son­al­ity sash from that year’s Miss V8 Su­per­cars com­pe­ti­tion but any­thing re­fer­ring to the V8s was blurred out. The pro­duc­ers ob­vi­ously weren’t too keen to give Su­per­cars a plug.

Mean­while Mon­ica, 26, ( in­set) says she re­ally doesn’t mind get­ting knocked out of the show so early.

“It was a re­lief,” she said. “I didn’t know what I was get­ting my­self into. It was fun, it was in­ter­est­ing ... but I had no idea that there were so many big per­son­al­i­ties and to get them all in one room ...”

As for Bach­e­lor Matty J, Mon­ica said there was “no con­nec­tion”.

Mon­ica, who moved to Mel­bourne from Townsville in 2015, was a reg­u­lar on the promo model cir­cuit in North Queens­land but saidd she didn’t have plans to cap­i­talise on her 15 min­utes of fame.

“It’s not some­thing I’m af­ter,” she said. “Maybe a few years ago I would have been but I don’t re­ally do much mod­el­ling these days. I’m happy to be the face on a TV show for five min­utes ... it’s back to ev­ery­day life. I just want to be chilled out for a while.”
