The Bachelor Australia 2021‘s Steph Lynch has finally revealed what went down between her and Jimmy Nicholson during their hush-hush Bach Pad meeting.
However, there was one moment during the hit show’s ninth season that left us scratching our heads: what TF happened between Steph and Jimmy when she was summoned to the Bach Pad?
We saw her arrive, we saw her leave, but we never saw the conversation that transpired between the two stars.
Luckily, in episode 143 of the So Dramatic! podcast, Steph sat down with host Megan Pustetto to spill the tea on what really happened when she met up with Jimmy, plus details on her surprising feud with fellow alum Abbie Chatfield.
What Happened When Steph Lynch Went To The Bach Pad?
While we initially thought the encounter was too spicy to air, Steph confessed that the pair “had the most pointless chat of all time.”
Apparently, Jimmy was expecting his family to rave about Steph because she was “so lively” and “friendly”. However, this was not the case.
“They just said [I was] sort of checked out,” she revealed, adding that the reason for this was due to having “two Xanax that day and heaps of wine”.
Jimmy later told the Bachelor reject that she was being too reserved and asked her to “trust in the process” going forward.
“Then [the producers] took me to another room and had to get me ready for the cocktail party,” Steph recalled. “It was the most pointless chat of all time. That’s why they didn’t show it.”
“It didn’t add into my villain storyline.”
Which The Bachelor Contestants Were Making Memes About Jimmy Nicholson?
Following The Bachelor 2021, it was revealed that a number of contestants had been making memes about Jimmy in a secret group chat.
In her interview with So Dramatic!, Steph admitted that she and co-star Sierah Stewpstone were the main culprits.
“Sierra and I were definitely cooking up some memes,” she said. “A lot of them were about each other as well.”
While the business development manager said the memes “were never intended for anyone outside the group”, most of the cast were on the receiving end of the jokes.
Why Was Steph Lynch Made To Nuke Her Twitch Account?
While Steph has been open about her love of online gaming, her Twitch account was totally wiped ahead of her appearance on the show.
ICYMI: Twitch is a live streaming service for content spanning gaming, entertainment, sports, you name it. However, it’s mainly known for hot gamer girls playing World of Warcraft in their knickers.
It’s this fact that had us all believing Steph’s account was nuked due to some racy content, but she maintains this isn’t the case.
Looks like Channel Ten made Steph wipe all of her gaming content from Twitch! Now I really wanna know what type of content she was putting on there… 👀🧐🔍 #thebachelorau #thebachelor #bachelor pic.twitter.com/H5MfrZhVuy— So Dramatic! (@sodramaticpod) July 21, 2021
“[Producers] never made me delete anything, it’s just hard to find,” she confessed before adding that she was asked to remove some content with heavy swearing.
But wait, there’s more!
“They made me delete my OnlyFans,” the 27-year-old confessed.
Apparently, Steph had posted a number of *spicy* photos to her account but maintains that “they weren’t even exciting”.
“Like, I never got nude or anything.”
Steph Lynch On Her Feud With Abbie Chatfield
When Steph first appeared on The Bachelor, fellow alum Abbie claimed that the budding villain was getting a “bad edit”.
However, after the 2019 runner-up featured Steph on an episode of her podcast, things took a turn.
“All of her stans were like, ‘Ew, why did you put her on your podcast?'” she recalled. “And [Abbie] was like ‘I just wanted to give her a chance to explain [herself], but she just really confirmed the lie’. I don’t even know what she was referring to.
“She just like, talked me down the whole time. I was like, ‘This is insane’.”
Runner-Up Brooke Cleal Was Certain Jimmy Nicholson Would Pick Her
Despite leaving mid-way through the season to mourn her late grandfather, Brooke Cleal returned in hopes of winning Jimmy’s heart.
Although she finished in second place next to Holly Kingston, Steph said that Jimmy had been whispering sweet nothings in Brooke’s ear, making her “100 per cent” sure the Bachelor was going to choose her.
Steph recalled: “She said to us, afterwards, ‘The sh*t he was saying to me off-camera… there was no doubt in my mind that it was me’.” Uhhh, AWKWARD!
What Does Steph Lynch Really Think About The Bachelor Producers?
Steph admitted that while she got along with the show’s producers, she was wary about their intentions.
“You have to take it with a grain of salt because you know that they’re just there to coerce you,” she confessed. “I definitely got yelled at a couple of times because I’m such a f*cking idiot.”
Adding that she found it “really hard” not to “take the piss” of the situation, she was asked to leave some scenes because she wasn’t playing into the producer’s instructions.
“One of the head honchos comes out [and] yells, ‘We’re making a TV show here like f*cking shut up’. And basically, and it’s like, ‘Oh, thanks for reminding me that I’m not actually here to fall in love. No, I’m here for you to make your TV show’.”
