During an interview with Dubbo radio station Hit93.5 Dubbo, The Bachelor’s Tara Pavlovic has accidentally said that she didn’t win the show.
When asked to confirm whether she’s still in touch with the show’s ‘hot waiter’ Derek, the Queensland nanny said: ‘We went out on a date after I was eliminated.’
Almost immediately, the 27-year-old realised she’d slip-up by announcing her elimination and seemingly tried to backtrack, instead insisting she’d won.
‘She got eliminated’: A Radio host from popular rural station Hit93.5 has claimed The Bachelor’s Tara Pavlovic confirmed she does not win Matty J’s heart on the show
Confirmed? Dubbo radio host Jimi Love tweeted this after the conversation
Daily Mail Australia has reached out to Hit93.5 and The Bachelor representatives for comment.
The Bachelor still has two episodes to air, with Queensland nanny Tara, 27 competing for Matty J’s heart alongside Laura Byrne, 30 and Elise Stacy, 29.
On Wednesday’s episode, Matty is set to confirm the final two during the season’s last elimination, with Jimi’s tweet indicating Tara will be sent home.
Spoiled? ‘Just chatted with Tara from @TheBachelorAU and she told us she got eliminated!’ host Jimi Love wrote, several hours before the final two is announced on Wednesday
On Thursday, the finale airs, with the marketing manager, who had his heart broken by Georgia Love on The Bachelorette, putting it all on the line for a second time.
The ramifications for the potential spoiler are unknown, given that it’s the first time in the Australian series history that a final three contestant has faced leak allegations.
Following Jimi’s post on Wednesday, Sportsbet were still accepting bets on all-three potential winners.
The odds-on favourite since before the show even began airing, jewelry designer Laura has maintained her $1.40 odds.
Elise is currently $4.00 to win the show and despite the claims as to her apparent elimination, fans can still back Tara at $6.50, should the claims be incorrect.

During the finale of The Bachelorette last season, Matty was emotionally rejected by Georgia Love for another potential suitor, Lee Elliott.
He is now hoping to find love with either Laura, Elise or potentially Tara, and has acknowledged in interviews he is in a happy relationship with one of the ladies.
Rumours circulated this week claiming Matty J proposed to the winner, who declined his proposal, but insisted they wanted to continue with the relationship.
Matty has since denied the claims, telling Nova 100’s Chrissie, Sam & Browny on Wednesday: ‘I heard that rumour, that one went round, there was no proposal.’
