The Bachelorette’s Sophie Monk masculinity challenge

She has previously admitted that she isn’t interested in dating a ‘pretty boy’. 

And so it’s no surprise Sophie Monk was raring to see whether her suitors were willing to get their hands dirty with manual work this week on The Bachelorette. 

In a new promo video for Thursday night’s episode, the blonde beauty is seen challenging her band of merry men to a ‘masculinity competition’, which involved competitive tyre changing and drawer fixing.

‘A real man,’ the former actress responded. 

While some men were visibly concerned about the competition, resident ‘villain’ Blake remained calm and collected.
