WHO: What have you been up to lately work wise?
Brittney: I’ve been working with the government for four years and I absolutely love it, it’s really rewarding work.
And you’re based in Queensland right? So you guys aren’t impacted too much by the pandemic right now.
Yeah I live on the Gold Coast and we’ve kind of been OK.
What’s life been like since Bachelor in Paradise? You guys had such a long wait between when the show was filmed and when it actually aired.
I know! Last year it was shown in April, which was still a long wait, but this year there was such a long time between filming.
Still, I’ve actually dated no one. I’ve actually been on a couple of dates but they fizzled out.
Why didn’t they work out?
I don’t know … I’m pretty good at ghosting ... the old “new phone who dis?”
Do you find guys pre-set idea of what you’re going to be like before they meet you?
They have this idea that I’m going to be quiet, but I’m actually more loud in real life! They’re like ‘I thought it was just an act’ and I’m like ‘No, this is what I’m really like’.
Do you still hang out with anyone from the Bachelor in Paradise cast? You guys seem like really good mates in real life.
Yeah I see pretty much everyone, except for a couple and with COVID we can’t really see each other. I still call Rachel from the first once, she’s a really good friend of mine. I hang out with Jamie [Doran], Naranga [Amarasinghe] and Scot [Fuller] and Renee [Barrett] and I just went to Darwin together.
You mentioned Jamie ... is he as crazy in real life as he comes across on the show?
No, I think Jamie is so fun! We’re really good friends.
Do you think he gets a bit of an unfair rap?
I think he does, to be honest. He’s actually super lovely.
Have you been watching the current season of The Bachelor? What do you think so far?
I don’t have a normal TV at home so I haven’t watched it, but I’ve seen a little bit here and there on social media. I’m so glad I’m not on there! There are so many mean girls! I honestly don’t know how they do it.
You recently went blonde and people are absolutely loving your new hair. What inspired the change?
I’ve been brunette for ages and I actually had red hair last year and then I thought ‘Why not go blonde? I’ve heard they have more fun!’
I think I’ve had about seven goes of a full head of a foils, so it’s quite fried now, but it’s worth it. It looks good in photos!
You always look amazing in your bikini Instagram snaps … what’s your health and fitness routine like these days?
I actually don’t go to the gym or anything. I’ve slowly stopped that. Before summer hits I’m going to probably ramp it up.
I’ve got the winter weight on at the moment and now it’s spring, I’ve got no excuse. I basically just walk.
There was some chatter in the comments section on your Instagram recently from fans speculating you've gone under the knife. Have you had any procedures done on your nose?
No, definitely not my nose! It’s completely natural.
But I did get my boobs done again. I’ve had a breast implant illness, but I’m all healthy now. I just got them a little bit bigger. Definitely not my nose, but I have had my lips done now.
