Brooke Blurton has revealed whether he ‘ex’ Jamie-Lee Dayz has a chance of winning her heart on the new season of The Bachelorette after the pair’s history.
Both women previously starred on Nick Cummins’ season of The Bachelor back in 2018 and formed a close bond, with rumours soon circulating that the pair dated after Honey Badger’s series ended.
‘I think Jamie-Lee and I’s relationship outside the experience was definitely unspoken,’ Brooke, 26, told Yahoo.

The youth worker explained when they first met their ‘priorities’ were different as they were were focused on Nick during his season.
Brooke admits the relationship between both women didn’t exactly play out afterwards, but they still had a connection.
‘It kind of never really played out in the outside world, but I think in the years that we had known each other, there was always a connection,’ she said.
The reality star said she didn’t actually know that Jamie-Lee was going to be one of the contestants on her season of The Bachelorette and was genuinely shocked when they crossed paths again.
‘It was such a surprise,’ Brooke confessed. ‘I didn’t expect it, but it was kind of a nice feeling of familiarity and knowing that you have a connection with someone already.’
When she discovered that Brooke was the next Bachelorette, Jamie-Lee had already taken to Instagram and told her followers that she knew it was ‘now or never’.

‘I strongly believe things happen for a reason and I feel like this timing has been nothing short of fate,’ she wrote in the caption.
The upcoming seventh season of The Bachelorette has broken ground with Brooke being the first Indigenous and bisexual lead, meaning both men and women will be vying for her affection.
It will be a third-time’s-the-charm scenario for the youth worker, who appeared on The Bachelor in 2018 and 2019’s Bachelor in Paradise.
The Bachelorette premieres Wednesday, October 20, at 7.30pm on Channel 10
