Embarrassing photos surfaced just hours before the Bachelor final of contestant Bella Varelis in a compromising position with a man who is not Locky Gilbert.
Ex-Survivor star Locky will choose between marketing consultant Bella, 25, and nurse Irena Srbinovska, 31, on Thursday’s nerve-racking final episode.
But paparazzi photos have emerged proving that the brunette spent the weekend with former Bachelorette star Nathan Favro.

One of Bella’s neighbors in Sydney saw Nathan’s Toyota HiLux parked in front of her house around 8 p.m. Saturday night.
The vehicle was across the street from Bella’s Mini.
The next morning, around 9:45 AM, a nervous-looking Nathan, 25, was depicted leaving the apartment and driving away.

Bella got out an hour later, shortly before 11 a.m., with her roommate Bec Cvilikas, who was eliminated on Wednesday’s episode of The Bachelor.
While these photos aren’t irrefutable proof that Bella and Nathan are dating – they could just be friends or he could see Bec – they leave no doubt that Bella isn’t winning Locky’s heart.
No Bachelor winner would be so indiscreet leading up to the season finale, so it can be safely assumed that she is not dating 31-year-old Locky.
