What tea is about to be spilled?

The spicy teasers have revealed that this season will delve into a whole lotta drama from the past.

Let’s start with the obvious: Alex Nation and Richie Strahan reunite after their Bachie-born relationship famously went down in flames.

In the trailer, the pair tease that there are “grubby details” yet to come out about their split.

According to a recent report by NW magazine, there were several factors that contributed to their demise including financial dramas, health issues and meddling exes.

The gossip mag claims that they did the whole long distance relationship thing for five months, with Alex living in Melbourne and Richie living in his hometown of Perth.

Nation wanted her BF to move to Melbourne to support the mother-of-one as she was ‘going through some dark times and a medical complication’, but Richie refused due to ‘financial issues’.

An insider also unveiled some “grubby details” to the publication, claiming that Richie would only fly to Victoria to be with Alex if it involved public appearances and events.

“She was lonely and going through some tough times. She wanted Richie by her side and for them to be a family but he didn’t want to keep spending money on flights unless they were getting paid for it,” says the sneaky source.

The relationship hit its final snag when Alex allegedly reached out to her ex-boyfriend, Tom Barbour.

“He was so angry he found out that way,” the friend continues. “It sealed their fate, really, and they never saw each other again after that.”

The pair, who met on 2016’s Bachie, called it quits midway through 2017 and Nation was reportedly engaged to her GF Maegan Luxa by the end of 2017 before breaking up in early 2018.

Next up we have some unknown tea about last year’s Bachelor, Nick ‘Honey Badger’ Cummins.

Channel Ten have been teasing us with a trailer which shows Brooke Blurton telling her fellow 2018 contestants Cat, Cass and Alisha that she has some kind of ~secret~ to share about Badge.

In the teaser, the girls are all shocked, we repeat, SHOCKED by whatever this revelation is.

The vid cuts to a confessional where she says that Nick is “going to hate” her for sharing the goss and we cannot bloody wait to see what it is.
