The Bachelor Australia’s Rachael Gouvignon Had A Major Beauty Makeover

Not even former The Bachelor Richie recognised her!

Beauty Crew Junior Beauty Writer / April 11 2019

Bachelor in Paradise Australia kicked off again this week (don’t pretend you didn’t know!) and we had to do a double take of one of the bachelorettes because we almost didn’t recognise her.

34-year-old Rachael Gouvignon, who was one of the last ladies standing on Richie Strahan’s season of The Bachelor Australia in 2016, showed up on the Bachelor in Paradise island looking completely different. Not even Richie knew who she was at first!

The formerly blonde reality TV star has undergone a total transformation, going from ‘girl next door’ to smouldering brunette glamazon...

She’s traded her dark blonde balayage for a cool shade of brunette that makes her ice-blue eyes pop. She’s also had her eyebrows tinted to match.

We must say her hair looks a lot thicker, longer and way healthier (check out that mirror-like shine) than when it was lighter.

We approve!
