But, for Perth-based social worker Brooke, returning to the franchise was never an option.
"I always got asked whether or not being the Bachelorette was a consideration, but not at the time," Brooke told TV WEEK last year.
"I'd just come out of The Bachelor, so I felt a bit fresh."
Now, the proud Noongar Yamatji woman has instead scored a dream gig, hosting Western Australian NRL’s Indigenous Round.
“Stepping out of my comfort zone is something I try to always live my life by,” Brooke wrote about her new job.
“This role has already taught me so much about myself in the 5 weeks and I’m extremely excited for more growth, more NRL and more bloopers.”
Brooke’s passion for football instantly captured the attention of Bachelor Nick, who is former professional rugby union player, and pinned her as a front runner on the show.
So, it’s not surprising she’s thriving in this new role.
Earlier this year Brooke spoke to the ABC about using her newfound platform to advocate for Indigenous issues and become a role model.
“Aboriginal people are definitely overrepresented, and not in the most positive light.”
“I think now, having this platform, I think I am that [role model] and I have to actually take that as a responsibility that in a way this is positive for young girls… because once upon a time I didn’t have that.”
