In 2014 and 2015, fans of reality television followed Sam Frost’s quest for love on The Bachelor and The Bachelorette, respectively.
Last week, spectators made a double take while watching this season of the program since one candidate might easily be mistaken for Sam at first glance.
Tahnee Leeson, who is vying for the affections of beautiful pilot Jimmy Nicholson, has the same golden locks and dark brows as the star of Home and Away.
The corporate travel manager, 27, appeared in only a few programs on Wednesday and Thursday nights, but her striking resemblance to the soap star astonished viewers.
‘Anyone noticed that Sam Frost is back on The Bachelor?’ one fan inquired on social media. Previously, many people were quick to agree.
It comes only weeks after the reality star-turned-actress explained why, after two very public breakups, she prefers to keep her personal life private.
‘I have at times talked about things early,’ Sam admitted to TV Week last month.
‘I believe I’ve tried to keep that [her love life] a little more private while I figure things out about myself, and I’ve talked about things prematurely at times, and people will wonder what’s going on,’ she continued.
‘I understand why people are interested in my dating life due to my appearances on The Bachelor and The Bachelorette… but I don’t have much to say right now.’
When Sam and her ex-boyfriend Dave Bashford enjoyed a romantic holiday just after Christmas last year, it fueled rumors that they were back together.
Sam had two public splits before leaving his relationship with Dave: the first in 2014 with Blake Garvey, and the second in 2016 with Sasha Mielczarek.
Unlike previous splits, Sam stated that she was unconcerned about the public response this time.
‘Dave is one of my closest friends, and we always support one other, so it was simple for me. ‘We were aware that there was a great deal of speculation,’ she explained.
