Jilted Bachelor winner Sam Frost will return as The Bachelorette for the spin-off series on TEN.
Frost, 25, was famously dumped by Blake Garvey after being chosen in the final last year in what became one of the year’s biggest media scandals.
But she returns for the short-run series which will follow a feature season of The Bachelor later this year.
“TEN asked me late last year and I wasn’t really interested in doing it … it took me a long time to actually decide to say yes,” she told News Corp.
“I asked my sister, “what if the same thing happens again? what happens if I end up getting heartbroken again?.
“But with some encouragement from her and my brother, I ended up deciding to do it. It wasn’t an overnight decision, that’s for sure, but I just have a why not attitude, so I just couldn’t really pass this opportunity up.”
Earlier this year Programming Chief Beverley McGarvey told TV Tonight she wouldn’t rule two seasons in or out for the future.
“Bachelorette is a short series. It’s a stunt, an event series. So we’ll do it this year,” she said, “but will we do it again next year? Who knows. But we’re not really doing that many more hours of the shows combined.”
