The Bachelor 2020 star Roxi Kenny has addressed rumours about her sexuality in an exclusive chat with So Dramatic!.
Chatting to host Megan Pustetto, the Brisbanite dropped all the juicy details about mansion feuds, contestants sending naughty pics during ‘Love in Lockdown’, plus what really happens on a group date!
However, in a Patreon-exclusive episode, Roxi has opened up about her sexuality and addressed the rumours that plagued her while on The Bachelor.
“The one thing that disappointed me a little bit was everyone’s speculations about my sexuality,” she explained. “All the rumours started coming out being like, ‘Oh, Roxi dresses like a lesbian’.
“I just felt very attacked because I was like, ‘Why is my sexuality an issue? Like, why is it you’re making it a negative?’ It started to feel like it was a bad thing.”
As a result of the intense trolling she received online, Roxi claimed she “spiralled pretty bad”, throwing herself into partying and drinking.
“It was to a point where I was… just constantly writing myself off, and that was my way of dealing with the stress,” she said.
Following her “negative” experience with Locky, the former reality star said she “swung towards the women’s side for a bit” while on nights out.
“When the show started airing and I was going out with all my guy mates, I was predominantly hooking up with girls,” she revealed. “It became like an ongoing joke… like, ‘Don’t take Roxi around, she’ll steal your girlfriend.'”
Has Roxi Kenny Put A Label On Her Sexuality?
In “flip-[flopping]” in her attraction to both men and women, Roxi confessed she thought she was “going through a phase”.
“It was a lot to go through… because it was such a critical time with the show airing and all the bullshit I was copping,” she said. “No wonder I f*cking spiralled, like, looking back, it all makes sense now.”
She continued: “I commend the people that do come out and say, ‘This is me’, but I kind of fought myself back and forth a few times,
However, while men “predominantly” have Roxi’s interest, she does “sway” in her sexuality.
“It’s hard to put a label on there… I still don’t know what it is,” she said.
In late 2020, Roxi debuted her relationship with her current boyfriend, Harry Feary.
Locky Gilbert Begged Roxi Kenny To Come Back To The Show
During part two of Roxi’s exclusive chat with So Dramatic!, she revealed that Locky begged her to come back to the show after her spectacular walkout.
“I got a phone call at the airport from Locky being like, ‘I just heard what happened. Can you come back? I’ll come pick you up’,” she recalled.
However, Roxi refused, assuming that it was part of a ploy for Locky to look good for the cameras.
Despite not heading back to the mansion to give things another crack with the Bachelor, the pair continued to speak “almost every day” following her exit.
“He would face time me. We were texting. He rang me on the phone and spoke to me right before his date with Irina… towards the end,” Roxi confessed. “He was saying how much he missed me and all this shit.”
Roxi Kenny Reveals How Scripted The Bachelor Really Is
Contrary to popular belief, Roxi maintains that The Bachelor is not scripted.
“You can say what you want to say,” she confirmed to So Dramatic!. However, if you “start going off-topic”, producers will step in to guide the conversation.
“They will… say, ‘Hey, let’s talk about when blah blah blah got her special rose’, or whatever, and then you’ll talk about that,” she said. “Just don’t go off-topic because that’s when they step in.”
