Channel 10 bosses ‘furious’ after Bachelor contestants go rogue on Instagram Live and spoil the show

The Bachelor EXCLUSIVE: Channel 10 bosses ‘furious’ after contestants go rogue in Instagram Live and claim the show is ‘fake’ and share huge spoilers

Channel 10 bosses are ‘furious’ after three Bachelor contestants went rogue in an unauthorised Instagram Live post on Wednesday night to slam the show.   

Alongside Vakoo Kauapirura and Sogand Mohtat, Rachael Arahill claimed producers ‘faked’ her scandal with a crew member and also revealed that another girl is set to go home. 

In recent weeks, the show’s publicists have used a ‘three strike’ policy to try and keep stars in line, ‘threatening to take away opportunities’ if they break their strict rules. 

Oh dear: Vakoo Kauapirura (R), Sogand Mohtat (back) and Rachael Arahill (L) went rogue in an unauthorised Instagram Live post on Wednesday night

After viewers watched Rachael being booted from the mansion on Wednesday for giving a crew member her number, the blonde was the first to hit out.

‘Obviously producers set me up,’ the 23-year-old told her fans, claiming that the scandal regarding her and the unnamed crew member was not accurate. 

In another post, she questioned how she could have given him her number if he was on a ‘rostered day off’ and away from set when the incident is said to have occurred.

‘Watch me defy all odds by “giving my plan b my number” when I was being held upstairs in the makeup room,’ she raged before the episode aired.

Elsewhere in the post, Vakoo, 23, who was holding a glass of wine, confirmed she is now dating Rachael. 

Meanwhile, Sogand, 30, who is still competing for Matt Agnew’s heart and required to keep a low profile until her final scenes air, first attempted to hide from the camera at the boozy party.

‘It’s another Persian chick,’ she shouted from across the room, before jumping into the broadcast and joking she is now ‘in a relationship’ with Vakoo.   

‘She’s about to get kicked out,’ said Rachael of Sogand’s apparent future on the dating show, before quickly adding: ‘…of my house’.

Since the show started airing on July 31, publicists and producers have grown tired of contestants breaking the rules and spoiling the show for fans. 

They instigated a ‘three strike’ policy, where they give each of the girls a single ‘strike’ for each rule they break, often via Whatsapp messages. 

Once they have received ‘three strikes’ media opportunities are said ‘to taken away from them’ – but it is unclear if they have followed through with this yet.   

One contestant told Daily Mail Australia they simply believe it’s a ‘scare tactic’ to keep them in line, but the cast are now realising ‘they can’t control us’.   

Daily Mail Australia has contacted Channel 10 for comment.
