Alex Nation Hints At Drama With Richie Strahan On BIP

"I like to think I have a really thick skin."

We may be saying goodbye to Married At First Sight for another year, but we have plenty of reality TV to fill up our evenings.

Bachelor In Paradise will hit our screens in just over a week and we've started our pre-premiere Instagram stalk of the contestants. 

First on the list: Alex Nation.

Nation has to be one of the most famous Bachelor contestants. She won Richie's heart back in 2016, however the relationship ended with a highly publicised split in 2017. Nation then moved on with her AFL teammate, Maegan.

She single mum posted an emotional Instagram today reminiscing on her time on The Bachelor, revealing she suffered from "crippling anxiety". But one thing Nation really wants to get across is for the audience to play nice:

"I like to think I have a really thick skin but at the end of the day I am a mere mortal and I do feel, sometimes too much. Your words can be powerful, both positively and negatively. 

"You’re about to see a lot of familiar faces again appear on your telly‘s at home.

"It’s fun and exciting and I’m sure you all can’t wait to watch the love, lies, lust, laughter, friendships and drama unfold. Just remember, we are all human beings. We have good days and we have some real stinkers too, just like anyone else."

But she did promise some drama between her and Richie, thank GOD:

"Grab your cheese platters and your vino, Richie and I have a lot of catching up to do."

Fellow BIP contestant, Brooke Blurton commented on the post:

"Got your back girl." 

To which Alex replied: 

"And I've got yours."

Is this a flirtatious exchange? 

The pair get cosy with each other in a new promo video for BIP where they can be seen kissing!

"If the kiss is electric and amazing and you really feel it, you're on. I'm on!" Nation says to the camera.
