The Bachelor’s Sophie Tieman is forced to explain why she takes the bus to work

Property valuer explains why she still takes the bus to work – because fans can’t believe someone so glamorous would use public transport

A former Bachelor star has shared the unglamorous nine-to-five reality of life after television. 

While Sophie Tieman’s lifestyle may appear lavish on Instagram, the Sydney-based commercial property valuer and influencer insists she actually lives a humble existence by catching the bus to work like everyone else. 

Many of the 29-year-old’s 150,000 followers expressed their disbelief that someone so glamorous would use public transport, she said.

‘Lots of questions around why I catch the bus. Firstly I CAN drive into work if I wanted to but I choose not to for the following reasons,’ Sophie explained during an Instagram Q&A on Monday. 

‘It’s easier getting the bus, it’s quicker getting the buss [sic] (because of the bus lane in peak traffic), driving into the centre of the city is annoying to me.

‘I love zoning out on the way into work (it’s really the only time I get to), It’s also better for the environment.’

Sophie famously made it to the final two on Nick ‘Honey Badger’ Cummin’s season of The Bachelor in 2018 alongside Brittany Hockley.

Both women were dumped by the rugby star during the finale, in what became a shocking first for the Australian franchise.

Since leaving the show, Sophie has signed with RGM, a leading talent agency representing the likes of Cate Blanchett, Rebecca Gibney and Chris Lilley.
