Fans of The Bachelor will remember Alex as the winner of the fourth season, but her romance with rope-access technician Richie didn’t last.

They quietly broke up in 2017, after filming the show the previous year.

Alex later came out as pansexual and revealed she was dating a woman, Maegan Luxa, from her local Melbourne footy team.

They got engaged in December 2017, but split the following April. They remain friends. 

Alex kept her dating life under wraps after breaking off her engagement to Maegan.

She did, however, make an appearance on last year’s season of Bachelor in Paradise.

While on the Fiji-based dating show, she and Richie candidly discussed the circumstances of their break-up two years earlier.

Alex implied their relationship ended after she had an abortion and Richie wasn’t there to support her because they were living in different states.

She later had a guest role on Drunk History Australia, but has vowed to never appear on a dating show again.
