Bachelor fans brand Locky Gilbert a 'hypocrite'


‘They’re ALL fame hungry!’ Bachelor fans throw shade at Locky Gilbert after he and Irena Srbinovska said they ‘prefer the mountains to Bondi’ and don’t care about Instagram

Fans of The Bachelor franchise have criticised Locky Gilbert after he appeared to take a subtle swipe at some of the fame-hungry contestants from his season.

In an eyebrow-raising Instagram comment on Tuesday, Locky said that he and girlfriend Irena Srbinovska weren’t fans of Sydney’s Bondi Beach – which is a well-known celebrity hotspot frequented by reality stars.

‘We’re not too keen on the whole Bondi vibe. Give us the mountains any day,’ he wrote, alongside a crying-with-laughter emoji.

Given that Bachelor runners-up Bella Varelis and Bec Cvilikas both live in Bondi and are models and aspiring influencers, some fans interpreted Locky’s comment as a swipe at the pair.

While many agreed with him, some fans on Facebook accused Locky of hypocrisy given his history as a reality television star.

The adventure tour guide shot to fame on Australian Survivor in 2017, before returning for the All Stars season earlier this year and then doing The Bachelor.

‘Oh yeah and Locky was on the show to find love!’ one fan wrote sarcastically. ‘All are money and fame hungry.’

Another commented: ‘I’m sorry but how many shows have you been on, buddy?’

‘Not chasing fame,’ a third added. ‘Says the man who’s been on more than one reality show.’

‘I’m not about being an influencer, just about being real,’ the 31-year-old nurse told Daily Mail Australia after being asked why her account wasn’t verified yet.

Irena also clarified that she hadn’t received a blue tick yet for one simple reason. ‘I haven’t even applied for it,’ she said. ‘I don’t really care about it.’
