Eden opens up to Par­adise

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Food -

WITH the names Telv, Sarah, Dean and Dav­ina fresh in the minds of Mar­ried at First Sight fans, Perth Bach­e­lor in Par­adise Aus­tralia con­tes­tant Eden Sch­wencke has thrown down the re­al­ity tele­vi­sion gaunt­let by say­ing the spin-off se­ries of The Bach­e­lor and Bach­e­lorette will be bet­ter than the Nine Net­work’s rat­ing jug­ger­naut.

Sch­wencke, who made his tele­vi­sion de­but as So­phie Monk’s break­danc­ing-track­suit wear­ing el­i­gi­ble bach­e­lor, said fans of the love-fest show where ‘Bachie re­jects’ got a sec­ond chance at love could ex­pect a lot of drama and en­ter­tain­ment in ‘par­adise’ AKA Fiji.

“There’s a lot of drama – it’s re­ally en­ter­tain­ing and there will be a few feath­ers ruf­fled,” Sch­wencke said.

“You can ex­pect the un­ex­pected but it’s an amaz­ing sea­son and an amaz­ing ride for all of us and we are happy that peo­ple are able to join us on this jour­ney.”

The 34-year-old FIFO worker/mu­sic pro­ducer, who has al­ready paired up with Nina Rolle­ston from Sam Wood’s sea­son (2015), said the for­mat of Par­adise was what ap­pealed to him most.

“I think the con­cept be­hind Bach­e­lor in Par­adise was quite ap­peal­ing to me,” he said.

“In The Bach­e­lorette you have one woman to show your af­fec­tion to­wards but you don’t re­ally get to show what you can bring to the ta­ble.

“With this there’s a lot more peo­ple in­volved and a lot more op­por­tu­ni­ties to show who I am and can con­nect with.”

Al­though de­scrib­ing Monk as a won­der­ful woman, Sch­wencke said Rolle­ston was much more his type both phys­i­cally and men­tally.

“For me what at­tracted me to Nina was her con­fi­dence and her be­lief in her­self and the way she car­ried her­self,” he said.

“I was drawn to her straight away and I wanted to get to know her and af­ter one con­ver­sa­tion we re­ally con­nected.

“There was laugh­ter and we con­nected on an­other level straight away, if that makes sense.”

But as for whether Rolle­ston is “the one” or if he has fi­nally found love, Sch­wencke said view­ers would have to wait and see.

“It’s been a great ride and I will say this – if I was in a re­la­tion­ship and if I wasn’t in a re­la­tion­ship I would al­ways be seek­ing love, if that makes sense – we will leave it at that.”
