Konrad Bien-Stephens sadly did not receive a rose from Brooke Blurton during Thursday night’s episode of The Bachelorette Australia.
However, let’s be honest, none of us were exactly shocked he was sent packing from the mansion after his recent PDA make-out session with The Bachelor’s Abbie Chatfield that sent fans into a tailspin last week.
Now, Konrad has officially confirmed their romance (and the worst kept secret in the Bachelor nation) – and it seems like it’s much more serious than just a drunken pash at the pub.
“Obviously it has been a bit of time since production ended with Brooke,” Konrad told 10play after the episode aired last night. “We didn’t work out but I really like Abbie. She’s an awesome girl and I’m excited for what the future holds.
“I’m sort of head over heels for Abbie at the minute. It’s very early days but it’s a legitimate thing. I mean, everything happens for a reason so maybe this is what was meant to be.”
The Daily Mail reported this week that production had been ‘livid’ with Konrad after the photos were circulated and he was going to be losing his $5,000 bonus. However, Konrad said this is completely untrue.
“Obviously what I did was a silly thing but no one has ‘come down hard’ on me, they’re all beautiful people. I haven’t got a bad word to say about production so I don’t know where that’s come from,” he admitted.
What Has Abbie Chatfield Said About Konrad?
Despite Konrad publicly declaring his love for Abbie, she has kept mum on their romance. In fact, she actually denied even knowing who Konrad was.
On one of Abbie’s recent Instagram posts, a nosy follower asked the podcast host to give up details on the pash.
“Bestie you better spill the tea on Konrad,” they commented with a teacup emoji.
“I don’t know who that is. Sorry to this man,” Abbie responded.
So Dramatic! has also received word that producers are hoping to get Konrad to sign up to be The Bachelor for 2022, so, if things don’t work out with Abbie, at least he’s got a Plan B!
Brooke Blurton’s Response To Abbie Chatfield and Konrad Bien-Stephens’ Kiss
Considering Brooke and Abbie are friends IRL, it’s not surprising to learn that our Bachelorette isn’t happy about the steamy PDA.
As reported in episode 121 of the So Dramatic! podcast, a close friend of Brooke’s revealed she is “really upset”.
“She couldn’t believe what she was seeing. She had no idea they even knew each other!”
According to our source, Brooke is angry because she recently spoke about how spoilers were to blame for the show’s low ratings.
“And now Abbie has gone and done this to her. She’s pissed!” OUCH!
Former Bachelorette Australia 2019 star, Angie Kent’s Response
Brooke is not the only Bachelorette star to take issue with Abbie and Konrad’s PDA!
Former Bachelorette Angie Kent also expressed her thoughts about Abbie and Konrad giving zero f*cks about ruining the show.
“I mean I get it, we all need to eat,” she wrote. “But I guess I am a little more salty than the average punter because I know how much goes into this love safari experience.”
“You just want everyone involved to do their part and you know, perhaps not give away the ending at all.
“Like, is it that hard to make out behind closed doors these days when you’re both hot property in the TV world at the moment? So, now when I watch Konrad with a K, all I see is him getting up close and personal with someone who isn’t Brooke.
“Now we know he isn’t the one at the end, can we perhaps replace his airtime with people who we don’t know won’t be the last man or lady standing?”
Angie then said they just went and “threw a spanner right into this investment” i.e. our time and love for the show.
“I have thrown my toys out of the pram on this topic and I will move on from. End of rant.”
She’s not wrong!
