So Dramatic! can exclusively reveal another one of the lucky suitors who will be vying for Brooke Blurton‘s roses on the upcoming season of The Bachelorette Australia 2021. And it is none other than former Bachelor star Nikki Ferris‘ ex-boyfriend Steve Pliatsikas!
Well, reality TV really is just one incestuous cesspool, isn’t it!
Nikki and Steve went public with their romance in November 2020, sharing a number of loved-up snaps to Instagram.
“They first met through a game Dessert Boxes were having on their Instagram,” a friend tells So Dramatic!. “They had instant chemistry and hit it off straight away.
Things appeared to be getting quite serious between the couple after Nikki revealed she was already thinking about baby names for their future children.
However, the friend tells So Dramatic! that the relationship only lasted for about two months. The pair still remain close friends.
What Else Do We Know About Steve?
So Dramatic! can reveal even more details about Steve, with sources dishing that he is a former Rugby Union player who played for the Greek national team.
“He was living over there for a few months from 2013-2016,” a friend said. “He spent a lot of time touring and playing football in various countries – he is very talented!”
Cronulla Shire-based Steve also worked as a promo model and topless waiter. He waited part-time whilst studying at university.
He graduated from the University of Newcastle in 2018 with a Bachelor of Podiatry and a Diploma in Health Science.
Hopefully, Brooke is a fan of abs and tatts because Steve has quite the impressive collection of both! Peep below:
However, these days, Steve works as a Podiatrist and even owns his own Podiatry clinic in Carlton, NSW.
“He’s always been drawn to a profession in healthcare due to my compassionate nature and desire to achieve optimal patient outcomes,” his bio on his company website reads. “He was first introduced to the profession of podiatry as a patient when he was diagnosed with a mild case of Sever’s. He was able to experience firsthand the positive impact a good podiatrist can make to a person’s life.
“His lifelong love of sport means he has a particular interest in biomechanics, orthotics and treating sports injuries.”
Who is Nikki Ferris?
Nikki rose to fame after appearing on Matt Agnew’s season of The Bachelor in 2019.
The now 25-year-old arrived at the mansion dressed as a sexy cheerleader. How could we ever forget her iconic/chaotic entry!?

And Steve isn’t the only contestant joining The Bachelorette who is the ex of a former Bachelor babe! So Dramatic! also revealed that Megan Marx’s ex Carissa Croft is also one of the lucky suitors vying for Brooke’s roses.
One familiar face you might also remember is that of Bachelor alum Jaimie-Lee Dayz. Not only is she a former Bachelor contestant, but she was actually an intruder on Nick Cummins ‘the Honey Badger’s‘ season in 2018 – the same season as Brooke!
