Blurton first appeared on The Bachelor franchise during Nick ‘Honey Badger’ Cummins’ season.
There were rumours that Blurton and one of the fellow female contestants Jamie-Lee Dayz had hit it off romantically during their appearance.
Now, a new teaser has confirmed Dayz’s upcoming appearance on Blurton’s season.
“We spent a lot of time together in the house, we just clicked,” the reality star said in the clip.
“But I definitely think it was more than just friends, for three years I’ve wondered if it’s been one-sided.”
Also set to appear on the show is Australian swimmer Kurt Herzog.
Kurt swam in the 200m freestyle relay alongside Olympic legend Grant Hackett during the 2015 World Swimming Championships where the team achieved a bronze medal.
He was spotted in the first supersized trailer for this season telling Blurton that one of the male contestants had “deviated away” from getting to know Brooke.
Some may know Carissa Croft due to her friendship with Bachelor alumni Megan Marx.
Marx was the first openly bisexual contestant in The Bachelor Australia history. Marx and Croft previously dated but remain close friends.
Croft has also been spotted in the trailer in several scenes including one where she gets cuddly with Blurton on the couch during a dinner party.
Dubbed the “Persian Prince” in his trailer, Brisbane business owner Darvid Garayeli will also make an appearance.
He impressed Blurton with his unusual red carpet arrival when he rode a lawnmower during their first encounter.
Other rumoured contestants include Influencer CoCo White and photographer Beau Tauwhara.
Altogether, there appear to be 16 contestants; eight males and eight females although intruders introduced may make an appearance throughout the season.
In the trailer, Blurton said she “is madly in love”.
“I did this experience the first time, it didn’t work. I tried the second and it didn’t work and the third time has restored my faith in actually loving something so unconditionally and knowing they love you back.”Internet Explorer Channel Network
