The Perth native's season produced TV gold in the form of Keira Maguire.
In the end it was down to Nikki Gogan and Alex Nation.
While social media seemed to favour Nikki, Richie followed his heart...
And chocolate covered bath for mum-of-one Alex.
The couple were madly in love, for a full year before calling it quits.
While speculation surrounded their break-up, neither party every really spilled the tea.
The new series promises to give fans all the details on their 'grubby' split.
No word on whether Richie finds the one on the Ten spin-off.
But the blonde isn't short of attention.
In a new teaser clip for Bachelor in Paradise, Richie is seen arriving at the Fijian resort of Mango Bay much to the delight of his co-stars Cass Wood, Cat Henesey and Rachael Gouvignon.
All three women reveal they are physically attracted to the 33-year-old Perth native, to which Richie replies: "I've got my work cut out for me!"
