THERE is an old saying in courtship that says ‘three is a crowd’, and if Sportsbet.com.au’s latest odds on The Bachelor are to be believed, we may be down to a race in two.
Sportbet has Alex as the $1.80 favourite to win Richie’s heart ahead of blonde bombshell Nikki at the $2 quote.
Olena is back at the $16 mark after pictures released yesterday showed the 23-year-old getting cosy with former professional tennis player Nick Lindahl at the beach.
The Bachelor enthusiasts were also quick to read into an Instagram photo posted by the Ukrainian makeup artist next to already-eliminated contestant Steph Dixon.
One avid watcher of the show stated “winners never hang out with the losers after the show”, while others agreed, adding “We know who doesn’t win then”.
It was Olena’s first Instagram post since filming began on the reality TV show.
While Alex is at the shorter Sportsbet quote, all the money has come for Nikki.
Twice as many bets have been taken on Nikki compared to Alex, and nearly half of the entire money wagered on the show has been on Nikki.
Sportsbet representative Christian Jantzen said customers are not convinced that Olena’s chances are over just yet.
“Olena looked pretty happy with her new man in those pics at the beach, so we can’t see how she could possibly be The Bachelor winner but punters seem to think it’s a bit of a smokescreen because they’re still backing her at big odds.” Jantzen said.
The final episodes of The Bachelor Australia will screen 7:30pm on Wednesday and Thursday on Channel Ten.
