Locky who? The Bachelor’s Bella Varelis can’t stop smiling as she and Bec Cvilikas chat to some shirtless hunky men at Bondi Beach
She may have had her heart broken by Locky Gilbert on the latest season of The Bachelor.
But Bella Varelis couldn’t wipe the smile of her face as she and her co-star Bec Cvilikas chatted to some shirtless men at Sydney’s Bondi Beach on Thursday.
The 25-year-old showed no signs of sadness as she shared a laugh with the boys on the grassy knoll, a popular hangout in the area.

The marketing consultant looked stunning on the day, showing off her slender legs in a pair of high-waisted denim shorts and a singlet.
She accesorised the look with silver flats, a black bag and sunglasses.
She wore her long dark locks out in loose tousled curls and showed off her natural beauty by wearing barely any makeup.
Meanwhile, Bec, 25, who now lives with Bella, opted for a white linen shirt and shorts.

Bella was left blindsided after Locky Gilbert dumped her for Irena Srbinovska during the emotional finale of The Bachelor last month.
In an interview with The Daily Telegraph on Wednesday, she said she still couldn’t fathom how someone could profess to being in love with two women.
Reflecting on how Locky had said ‘I’m falling in love with you’ only to dump her shortly afterwards, the 25-year-old said she ‘wouldn’t use the word played’ because what happened to her was worse than that.

Bella acknowledged that while Locky, 31, may have found himself caught up in the moment, it was unnecessary for him to use the word ‘love’ because this had given her false hope she was going to be the winner.
‘At the end of the day, if he was in love with me, he would want to be in a relationship with me,’ she stated.
Bella also lambasted Locky for leading her on in a new interview on the Life Uncut podcast.

Speaking to hosts Brittany Hockley and Laura Byrne – who are former Bachelor finalists themselves – Bella said: ‘During lockdown, we were talking about engagement rings.
‘He was like, “what would you do if I proposed to you at the end?”
‘The one thing that really got me was when he said, “I can’t wait to make you happy for the rest of your life.” You don’t just say that to someone unless you really want that to happen.’
Admitting that Locky’s words had a significant effect on her, Bella continued: ‘I remember saying to my mum, “I think I’ve actually found the person who wants to be with me.”‘
