Bachelor producers created The Bachelorette because they felt Sam Frost was cheated

The Bachelor producers have revealed they felt so bad about Sam Frost getting dumped by Blake Garvey, that they desperately wanted to help the brunette beauty find true love.

Despite the 26-year-old initially turning down the offer to be Australia’s first bachelorette, producers were eventually able to convince her to put her heart on the line again.

“We all felt a little responsible and we wanted to fix it,” executive producer Stephen Tate told “We felt like she’d been cheated out of the love we had promised.”


Stephen said the production team ensured they found the very best candidates in Australia for Sam to date on the new reality show.

“[The team] literally went to venues to look for people as well as going by word of mouth talking to people to find the most eligible Australian men,” he said.

The Bachelorette premieres on Channel 10 on Wednesday September 23 at 7.30pm.
