TAITE ‘I’m happy to walk – I don’t wanna waste my time’

How are things go­ing, Taite? I’m just con­tin­u­ing to try and find op­por­tu­ni­ties to go up to Ali. A lot of peo­ple are sec­ond-guess­ing it, like, “Who’s next?” We’re not at a theme park! Peo­ple are like, “Do we grab a ticket?” No – just go in when you’re ready! Are you catch­ing feel­ings? I’m still un­sure – it’s so early in the process. I find it harder to let my guard down, but I will. You just don’t want to come across as too des­per­ate. If noth­ing de­vel­ops there, will you stick around? I’m more than happy to walk away from this ex­pe­ri­ence be­cause I don’t want to waste her time or mine. Do you reckon you’re wast­ing your time? On face value, Ali’s beau­ti­ful. But I’ve dated beau­ti­ful girls in the past, and that hasn’t worked out. Ob­vi­ously, I’m at­tracted to the girl – but there’s more to love than looks. Did you look Ali up to make sure she was your type? I had a look for sure. I had a look straight away. I was like, “Damn, I want to check this girl out.” I’m not go­ing on a blind date. I don’t want to rock up and be like, “S**t! Like, do I go back, call work and tell them I’m com­ing back?” [Laughs] You haven’t been in love be­fore, is that right? Yeah – I’ve just been self­ish self­ish, and just wanted to do what I want and haven’t re­ally wanted to comm com­mit to any­one else. So do you think you’re ready now? I’m keen as mus­tard to set­tle down, get mar­ried and have kids – 100 p per cent that is the plan. What a about mov­ing to Ade­laide? Ali’s been b pretty firm about want­ing wantin to stay in her home city. Would W you move from Mel­bourne Melbo for her? I think she should have some sort of flex­i­bil­ity to­ward to­wards the sit­u­a­tion, but I’m sure we w can com­pro­mise. Do you think you’ve had enough time w with her? No. Not any time re re­ally – not even at cock­tail par­ties par­ties. The boys are a bit sav­age and ev ev­ery­one is out for their time to talk to her, which is fair enough. But I think th we have to take a step back a bit. [Laughs] If this doesn’t work out, would you ta take a stab as the Bach­e­lor? Yep – d def­i­nitely!

DANIEL ‘I’ll def­i­nitely be the Bach­e­lor’

You are cer­tainly a favourite, aren’t you, Todd? It’s a bat­tle­field! I’ve mus­tered more courage though. I think there’s a con­nec­tion there, so I guess that’s al­ways a good start. Is she keen on you, too? Well, I felt the spark as soon as I met her. Nat­u­rally I’m a pes­simist, so I was scep­ti­cal as to whether you can ac­tu­ally fall in love on re­al­ity TV, but now I have no doubt that you can. Is Ali your tra­di­tional type? I find at­trac­tion in all sorts of things – I do, how­ever, gen­er­ally date six-foot-tall blondes. I like tall blondes! Have you thought about what a fu­ture with Ali would look like? I’m 26, so ob­vi­ously I’m a few years Ali’s ju­nior. I wanted to have kids by 30, so I think we’re on the same page with the time frame. But some­thing that’s close to my heart is fos­ter­ing kids. So when I’m more fi­nan­cially sta­ble, that’s what I want to do. In terms of my own, I’m flex­i­ble – I want them, but I’ve got five sis­ters, so it’s like likely to be a girl. Do you reckon you and Ali wo would have cute kids? As long as they get my height and any ot other of her fea­tures! One th thing that sur­prised me was It I thought Ali would be taller – but she’s a lit­tle shorty, w which is re­ally cute. Per­fec­tPe – you have the h height, Ali has the blue ey eyes... We’ve got all b bases cov­ered!

TODD ‘I want a baby girl – and a bunch of foster kids’

Looks like ev­ery­one’s start­ing to catch the feels, how are you feel­ing? Ex­actly – you’ve got the flogs who are falling in love with her af­ter one meet! I was like, “If you were in the out­side world, that would be creepy, and she’d prob­a­bly get a re­strain­ing or­der out on you!” Boys are lit­er­ally com­ing back and say­ing, “Oh, I put my heart on the line.” And I’m just like, “F**k me – what have you done?!” Who are you clash­ing with the most? It was Nathan, but he’s left – he ex­ploded as soon as some­one said any­thing to him, so Taite was just, like, reel­ing him in. Char­lie is pretty easy to wind up, but he’s one of the boys in the house. He’s got that testos­terone side to him as well, so if some­thing pisses him off, he will flip. Do you think peo­ple are fak­ing it in front of Ali? Oh my God! They’re pre­tenders! As soon as the cam­eras aren’t on, some of the guys are com­pletely dif­fer­ent! There are boys in the house who are pre­tenders, yes! Do you think Ali will fig­ure it out? Oh, s**t will be sorted by the end – true colours are al­ready start­ing to show, so I think it’s all start­ing to fall into place. But I’m just en­joy­ing the red wines and get­ting ab­so­lutely leg­less – that’s what I’m there for... Char­lie, you’ve been smit­ten from the get-go! I ap­plied be­cause it was Ali – there was an at­trac­tion when I saw her on Bach­e­lor In Par­adise and thought I’d give it a go. I went back through old sea­sons, stalked her In­sta­gram, did all my re­search be­fore I got com­mit­ted – as you do! You’ve got to be pre­pared! Guess­ing you watched her on Sea­son One then? I thought she was quite cute – the younger ver­sion of Ali! Clearly you’re falling in love – how do you go about watch­ing the other guys with Ali? It’s ex­tremely hard to sit back, but that’s the process. I’ve come in know­ing that if I get a con­nec­tion to just trust in that, and that’s what I’m do­ing. I think it will be fine. Who’s your big­gest com­pe­ti­tion? Taite – he’s a gen­uine, good guy. I think he’s a force to be reck­oned with. What if she doesn’t choose you? That’s my great­est fear – at the end, you’re go­ing to be, like, com­pletely en­gulfed and in­volved and com­mit­ted, and to have her choose some­one else, it’s go­ing to be a dis­as­ter.

PADDY ‘Char­lie is easy to wind up – he flips!’ CHAR­LIE ‘I’ve stalked Ali, I’ve done my re­search’

How are things go­ing be­tween you and Ali so far? There’s def­i­nitely a strong con­nec­tion there. I’m feel­ing re­ally good. Is it hard see­ing her with the other Bach­e­lors though, now you’re so close? You’ve got to be a bit naive to think it’s just go­ing to be about you and her, so I’m pre­pared for it. But still, it’s not the best thing in the world. Are any of the other guys lay­ing it on too thick? No. I think just j about ev­ery­one y is here first and fore­most to see if they can fall in love with Ali. I can have my opin­ion on who I think would be suited and not suited to her, but at the end of the day, it’s not up to me, it’s her choice. Are you con­fi­dent that you’ll make it to the end? I can def­i­nitely see my­self falling in love with Ali. And I’m one of those peo­ple that, when I’m in, I’m all in. I don’t do it by halves, and we spoke about that. What’s W the dream for you? I’m I just look­ing to fall in love lo and find the deep­est love lo pos­si­ble and cre­ate a fam­ily, get mar­ried and be b con­tent with that. I think there’d t be noth­ing more grat­i­fy­ing g than cre­at­ing and rais­ing r a child to­gether. Are you re­ally ready to set­tle down? I’m bug­gered! I’m ex­hausted! I just need to find her! I’m not a night­club bloke. I’m no an­gel, I’ve gone out in my time and had a good time – but you reach an age where some days you don’t mind cook­ing pan­cakes for some­one else, not just your mate. How are you feel­ing about your re­la­tion­ship with Ali so far? I think there’s a bit of a spark there. I make her ner­vous, she makes me ner­vous. But I think it’s a bit more than cute – there’s some­thing that I can see she wants to ex­plore. But I can’t read her mind. I want to ex­plore but I can’t force that to hap­pen. Did you In­sta-stalk Ali be­fore com­ing in? I chose to know the bare bones. I want to get in a po­si­tion where if I met her father and mother, it’s more tra­di­tional and nat­u­ral, like in the out­side world. But be­cause we’re in this pres­sure cooker, that could all hap­pen in a real hurry, which I’m ob­vi­ously pre­pared for, and I could han­dle re­ally well. I know it sounds wanky, but you’re do­ing it for real. How do you feel about your fel­low com­peti­tors? Is the ri­valry heat­ing up? I think there’s a few blokes who may self-im­plode a bit along the way...

‘There’s a spark – I make her ner­vous’ ‘I’ll fall in love with Ali, I’m all in’

How H are you fi find­ing di lif life i in th the man­sion? Time in the house has been test­ing. It’s al­ways hard. For me, I’m some­one who is so men­tally stim­u­lated and usu­ally over­worked, so I’ve gone from work­ing too much to not work­ing at all, and I’m find­ing the men­tal bat­tle in the house, just per­son­ally, the tough­est part. I also live alone and I’m an OCD clean freak, so I find it very hard liv­ing with all these boys and not kind of hav­ing my own sanc­tu­ary. How are things go­ing with Ali? She’s an amaz­ing per­son, un­doubt­edly. I’d be shocked if any­one walked away af­ter spend­ing time with her and said oth­er­wise. But it’s early days and I think my whole phi­los­o­phy is that as long as it’s mov­ing for­wards and not back­wards, it’s go­ing in the right di­rec­tion. Do you think it’s pos­si­ble to fall in love in such a short amount of time? Noth­ing is im­pos­si­ble. I mean, we landed on the moon, didn’t we? Falling in love – it’s a re­al­ity, it can hap­pen, and I have watched the show nu­mer­ous times and it does hap­pen. What does ‘hap­pily ever af­ter’ look like for you? I think like most peo­ple, mar­riage and kids is def­i­nitely on the cards, but I want to do it once, I’ll put it to you that way.

Ro­man­tic Bill has mar­riage and ba­bies on the mind...
