Seriously, with the way all the Aussie reality stars do the rounds, you’d think landing a spot on one of the shows meant you could only exclusively date fellow reality has-beens. The latest mish-mash of reality show rejects is Stu Laundy, Sophie Monk‘s final pick on Bachelorette and now her ex-boyfriend…

With this gorgeous chick in her natural habitat ???????? @sophiemonk

And Ash Irvin, the gal who split amicably with “husband” Troy Delmege, only for him to shack up with fellow MAFS star Carly Bowyer within minutes.

Ash and Stu were snapped by a pap, and New Idea have published the exclusive pics this week. They’ve also got a source who reckons Stu spotted Ash on the show and was keen as a bean to meet up.

‘”Stu had never met Ashley before, but he saw her on MAFS and was very interested to see if there was a spark there. He was then approached by a mutual friend who told him Ashley was keen to meet. He was a little taken aback with Ashley’s bold approach as he is used to making the first move.”

Apparently Stu took Ash to the Woolwich Pier Hotel for dinner, which is one of the venues he owns. They apparently quaffed French champers while they chilled on the balcony overlooking Sydney Harbour. NICE FOR SOME, HUH.

According to a “close friend”, they even smooched.

“They even shared a kiss across the table during the night,” the (actually totally shit, if they’re sharing to goss mags) pal told New Idea.

At the end of the date the pair apparently jumped into a chauffeur-driven car and were dropped at a city-based hotel.

HUGE IF TRUE, GUYS.
