Former Bachelorette Brooke Blurton has again denied that she’s in a relationship with Sam McGinn, despite his recent post expressing he “snagged” her as a girlfriend.

ICYMI: Brooke soft-launched their relationship with a series of subtle posts in early 2022, before making a public debut at the Melbourne premiere of Hamilton the musical.

At the time, a source confirmed the duo were dating, but Brooke was quick to slam the reports, stating they were just friends. Sam later denounced this claim in September with a post of the pair at his footy grand final, stating he “snagged two GFs in one season”.

Even though they were recently papped pashing in Melbourne, Brooke has again shut down the dating rumours in an interview with The Daily Telegraph.

In talks about her upcoming involvement in The Challenge Australia, the publication declared that Brooke “is single and lamented the lack of romantic prospects” on Ten’s new show.

“I bloody wish there was some potential talent there but there was nothing,” she expressed. “I wanted to try something different other than love reality shows.

“And because I’ve always had such a competitive nature, The Challenge reached out and I am a bit of an adrenaline junky so I thought, why not?”
