One source revealed on episode 108 of So Dramatic! with Megan Pustetto that Locky’s appearance on the show was in doubt up until the eleventh hour.
“Locky was cast early on but his appearance was in doubt due to the COVID outbreak in Sydney,” the source dished. “He didn’t want to risk being stuck here and unable to get home considering WA have the strictest border restrictions.“
The source went on to explain that Locky’s fellow super spreader and Bachelor alum, Ciarran, was waiting in the wings as a backup for Locky.
“He was going to be put in as a replacement if Locky pulled out and was unable to film,” the source explained. “They kept Ciarran hanging until the very last minute.” Poor Ciarran!
As reported on episode 101 of the So Dramatic! with Megan Pustetto podcast, Locky and Ciarran applied for the first two seasons of SAS Australia, however missed out both times. Looks like third time’s a charm for Locky!
Ciarran Will Appear on The Bachelorette Sweden!
While a redemption story on SAS Australia would be very fitting for our CEO super-spreader, don’t feel too bad for Ciarran has he is still set to appear on The Bachelorette Sweden!
As reported on episode 81 of the So Dramatic! Podcast with Megan Pustetto, Ciarran, headed to Greece for filming in May 2021.
“It’s not an English speaking show so I don’t know how he will communicate with the Bachelorette,” a source revealed. We wonder if f*ckboy is an internationally recognised language?
“Angie’s season aired in Sweden about a year after it aired here and they loved it!” they added. “So they would be very familiar with him and that’s why they would have reached out to him.”
Locky Is Already Redeemed!
While Locky would be a great physical asset to SAS (we’d love to see it) — he’s already had a redemption of sorts in our eyes!
Most recently, he posted a photo of him and his Bachelor finale pick Irena Srbinovska on Saturday as they celebrated fellow Survivor alum Harry Hills‘ marriage to his new wife, Jordan.
As expected, fans went gaga over the cute pic, including Megan, who left a heart-eye emoji in the comment section.
One fan was quick to question why Megan was commenting on the photo after calling Locky a super-spreader on the podcast, to which the Survivor hunk responded: “To be honest, I did deserve it.” LOL.
“Thank God [Irena] has changed me for the better,” he added, and yes, thank God indeed!
Better luck next year on your SAS Australia journey, Ciarran! And we can’t wait to watch you tackle the course, Locky!
