A FORMER Gunnedah girl has taken her search for love to one of the biggest reality shows on television.
Country singer-songwriter Katrina Burgoyne said she had had the “worst luck in the dating scene” and, after being single for 12 months, applied to be a bachelorette on The Bachelor.
“I’ve always been a huge fan of The Bachelor and last year was the first Australian series and I was glued to the TV,” she said.
“This is me stepping out from behind the guitar and just going in and being myself – people get to see a little bit more of a personal side of me.”
The Newcastle-based singer and now photographe, said she applied for the show in “one desperate hour, after many, many bad dates”.
“I saw an ad on Facebook that said, ‘apply now for The Bachelor’, in February, so I thought ‘why not?’” she said.
Burgoyne said she was looking for love and the show gave her an “opportunity to be vulnerable”.
“I’m feeling lucky, so we’ll see what happens,” she said.
“He (Blake Garvey) is very hunky, so he definitely he has the look and is genuine and has the charm to match.”
Now that the show was being advertised, showing many of the bachelorettes, Burgoyne said she had started to get text messages from friends
asking what was going on.
“I’ve kept this secret for long, so I can’t wait for it to air,” she said.
