Stephanie Lynch applied for The Bachelor as she thought Tommy Little was going to be on the show

The Bachelor’s Stephanie Lynch admits she applied to go on the dating show because she thought The Project’s hunky panellist Tommy Little was going to be on it

Bachelor contestant Stephanie Lynch was sent home during Wednesday night’s episode of the Channel 10 show. 

And on Thursday, the 27-year-old admitted she wasn’t interested in Jimmy Nicholson and had only applied for the dating show because she thought The Project’s Tommy Little was going to be the bachelor.

During an interview on KIIS’ The Kyle and Jackie O show, host Jackie O Henderson asked: ‘Before you left, if Jimmy had shown more interest in you, would you have been keen?’

‘Nah, I thought it was going to be Tommy Little,’ Stephanie admitted.

A shocked Jackie O asked: ‘What! So you went on the show thinking it was going to be Tommy Little. What made you think it was going to be him?’

‘To be fair, I didn’t hear the rumours about Tommy until just before we left so I had no idea but that would have been nice. A girl can dream,’ Stephanie said.

Stephanie was sent home by Jimmy during Wednesday’s episode of The Bachelor  after it was revealed she still isn’t over her ex.

During the episode, Jimmy pulled Stephanie aside to get to the bottom of rumours that she was still not over her ex partner.

A surprised Steph denied ever speaking about her ex, to which Jimmy replied: ‘I don’t wanna sit here and have an argument with you.’

‘Do you genuinely see something here with me? ‘Cause if not, I think we should just call it a day.’

‘I’m very happy to leave,’ a smug Steph replied, before she got up and walked away from the mansion.

Speaking to cameras, she said: ‘Am I ok? Yeah, dude. I’m (bleep) ecstatic. I would marry my ex a thousand times before I would get with Jimmy.’
