She returned to The Bachelor franchise this week as an ‘intruder’ on Bachelor In Paradise.
But rose-nibbling Russian model Sasha Zhuravlyova was shown the door in record time, making her appearance memorable for all the wrong reasons.
The 33-year-old has since told Now To Love that she expected it, given that she wasn’t – and isn’t – proactive when it comes to making the first move.
‘I’m used to men chasing ME!’ Sasha Zhuravlyova says she expected to be eliminated from Bachelor In Paradise after her late entrance as ‘it was impossible to break any relationships’
She said: ‘It was just really bad timing for me to get in there. I came in very late and Rachael (Gouvignon, another intruder) had the approach of going up to men and chatting to them but I think I’m not that proactive.
‘All my life I’ve had men chasing me, rather than me chasing men. I was open-minded, I was ready to meet someone but at the same time I wasn’t going to chase someone. So basically I spent a lot of time at the bar drinking vodka, enjoying my time and hence why I got eliminated.’
She revealed that coming into the series late on meant that the couples were harder to break up.
‘Coming in that late makes a massive difference, she said. ‘Everyone is coupled up and happy. It’s just impossible to break any relationships.
She’s not shy! Outspoken Sasha revealed she was a ‘horny motherf**ker’ during her time shooting The Bachelor in 2016
‘There were only two or three guys who were single and none of them I was attracted to and there was no way they’d be attracted to me because I could see they were over this whole experience.’
Before entering the show for the first time since her 2016 time on The Bachelor, she took to social media to reveal the news that she was making a comeback.
‘Let’s see if I can add a bit more drama to @bachelorinparadiseau because it has been way too quiet without me. Tomorrow on Channel 10 at 7.30 pm’ she wrote beneath a snap of her in a jumpsuit.
The expat was expected to add some spice to the series, as she became known for her very blunt nature during her time on Richie Strahan’s season.

And the executive assistant didn’t hold back after being booted from the show, dishing details on life filming the reality series.
In December of 2016, the racy Russian revealed she was a ‘horny motherf**ker’ while shooting the show, and claimed that all the female contestants wanted to ‘f**k’ a hunky producer.
Last year, she also crudely lashed out at Richie, saying: ‘Why the hell did I end up on Richie’s season? They call him strawberry blonde but bloody hell, he’s a ginger motherf**ker and I had to make myself fall in love with him.’
However, it’s Sasha’s rose nibbling antics for which she is best remembered.
Explaining why she chose to peck on the red flower during a rose ceremony, she told TV Week that the blooms are coated in sugar and that she needed a sweet treat after a long day of filming.
