Sophie Monk’s announcement as the new Bachelorette left fans of the show questioning her motivation.
Now season two star Georgia Love has leapt to the defence of the bubbly radio personality, who some have accused of doing it for the fame.
“I truly believe that Sophie does want to find someone, I really do believe that,” she told the Schmunday Show.
Georgia, who also admitted she is a “hopeless romantic,” found love with her partner Lee Elliott on the Channel 10 program last year.
“She has been unlucky in love, very publicly,” Love added. “Why can’t she have the same go as everyone else?”
Since it was revealed that Sophie would be following in Georgia’s footsteps, the 37-year-old definitely hasn’t been shy about what she’s looking for in her new man.
"I want to meet someone real,” she told Be at the 2017 Logies. “I want someone kind and fun and secure in themselves and someone that backs you like a best friend.”
Sophie, who has been engaged twice before, recently begun filming for the show which is due to be aired later this year.
