In between all the drama, singing and Cinderella shoes on last night’s Bachelor premiere there was one moment that Australia couldn’t stop talking about.
The girl who ate her rose.
31-year-old Russian bachelorette Sasha was filmed nibbling on her red rose during the first rose ceremony.
Australia was incredibly confused by this moment, and it turns out so was Richie.
"I'm standing there and I'm like, 'Is she eating that rose?” Richie told Fairfax. "What the hell is going on here? What have I got myself into?"
But in the end he didn’t seem too worried about it.
"That's the beauty of a show like this. There's such a diverse group of unique people, and that's what we want to have."
