EXCLUSIVE: Sam Frost tells us finale spoiler was “unnecessary”

SAM Frost finally got the fairy tale ending she always wanted on last nights finale of the Bachelorette, however spoiler photos posted online just hours before the show went to air were ‘gut wrenching’, Ms Frost revealed.

Speaking to 1029 Hot Tomato, the brunette beauty told Flan & Emily Jade that no words could describe how gutted she was that the Daily Mail had published photos of herself and chosen beau Sasha Mielczarek inside a Sydney hotel room yesterday afternoon.

“You have no idea how I felt, I was absolutely gutted, Frost revealed. It’s just really disappointing because we’ve all worked so hard to keep the relationship a secret and for it to just get spoilt so close to the finale, it was unnecessary.”

The 26-year-old continued to vent to the breakfast hosts, stating that the couple were ten floors up, and that the images could of in fact been a lot worse.

“We were just freely in a hotel room, I’m sure they can’t do that! It’s unbelievable,” an annoyed Frost stated.

When asked whether the happy couple were going to move in together, Sam revealed it was something that was definitely on the cards.

“We think so! Sash lives three hours out of Sydney, so we think we will alternate in different places for a little while and then eventually we will move in together, which is pretty exciting!” a smitten Frost revealed.

Sasha and Sam both confessed their love for one another in a heart-warming grand finale in front of all of Australia on Thursday night.
