Brooke Blurton Biography – Brooke Blurton Wiki
Brooke Blurton is a youth worker, presenter, and mental health advocate. On May 20, 2021, Channel 10 announced Brooke Blurton as the new Bachelorette, making her the first openly bisexual star of the show. She was the frontrunner to win Nick ‘Honey Badger’ Cummins’ season of The Bachelor in 2018. She also appeared on Bachelor in Paradise in 2019.
During her several stints on the dating franchise, Brooke has been candid about her difficult upbringing and the tragedy that shaped her childhood and how she is using it to inspire others. When she was just 11, her mother committed suicide which led to her and her brothers ending up in foster care.
Previously speaking with SBS’ Noongar Dandjoo community TV program, Brooke opened up further about her childhood and her work within the Aboriginal community, her passion for raising awareness for mental health and how she hasn’t let her own past define her.
“I grew up in a country town in Carnarvon. I spent my childhood there up until I was about 11, when my mum, unfortunately, passed away—she committed suicide,” she told host Neil Coyne.
“My nan actually passed away a month later so us kids had to separate. All my brothers and [me], we didn’t really have a lot of strong role models so creating that myself was my inspiration,” she continued. “My biggest passion in life is mental health, from working and growing up with a lot of drug and alcohol violence in my childhood really.”

Brooke Blurton Boyfriend
Brooke Blurton was most recently rumoured to be dating Australian singer G Flip. In February 2021, Brooke and G Flip were spotted attending the Australian Open finals together, sharing their time together via Instagram Stories.
The rumours were later fuelled by Brooke showing off a fan-made t-shirt that was stamped with an image of the pair inside a love heart.
Brooke later confirmed the pair were just friends, saying, “You’d be photographed with a footballer or with any girl, like I was with G Flip, and people want to assume you’re automatically linked, but I’m not dating.”
During an appearance on Abbie Chatfield’s podcast It’s A Lot, Blurton said she had asked Abbie out on a date twice. Brooke said: “She’s not politely declined nor accepted.”
In response, Abbie said: “I said yes, babe, when you asked me on a date I said yes, but at the time there was something called coronavirus and I couldn’t go to fu**ing Western Australia, you live in Perth, just to clarify.”
