Thanks to tinder, The Bachelor Australia finale has been caught on camera by the paparazzi! 

One of the producers on the show was reportedly chatting to a woman on Tinder and mentioned that he was “flying overseas to film the finale of a reality show”. 

Little did the Sydney-based producer know that his potential lover was actually chatting to him from the home of a pap! 

He accidentally gave the woman the exact questions to ask in order to get as much information as possible about the finale’s secret location. 

It’s understood the producer logged back into the app and chatted to her again while on set in Asia. 

Because of Tinder’s feature that calculates the distance between you and the person you are talking to, which gave away his location.

Once the location was worked out, the paps flew there to snap photos and secretly film it, forcing Channel Ten and Warner Brothers to delay filming the finale.


The Daily Telegraph published photos showing Richie shirtless on the set. 

It’s been estimated that almost half of the dates are estimated to have been snapped! 

They even had a sneaky plan to confuse the paparazzi by sending half their crew to thailand as a decoy. 

The finale was supposed to be filmed on Sunday. 

Australia, meet your new Bachelor. Richie Strahan, 30 from Western Australia! #TheBachelorAU 🌹
