In an exclusive chat with Who shortly after the 2020 Bachelor finale, Alisha said she was "so excited" for Irena and Locky and remarked that taking downtime after a reality TV romance plays out on screen is "the perfect thing".
"Me and Glenn were lucky – though it got a bit frustrating at times – that we had to hide our relationship for so long and the show was delayed another three or four months," she said, referring to the many months between Bachelor in Paradise being filmed and going to air.
"We very much lived life without the public gaze on us so we’ve always had a touch-point when things are pretty hectic and everyone wants to chuck their two cents into your relationship."
NSW native Alisha made the bold decision to pack up her life and move to Glenn's hometown of Perth when state borders first closed due to the coronavirus pandemic.
"We’d talked about it and we were going to do long-distance in 2020 because I have my business in Perth and Alisha was doing things in Sydney but it really became crunch-time when corona happened and the borders were shutting. We just made the decision for Alisha to come over to Perth three days before the WA borders shut for good."
Alisha added: "I packed two suitcases and I reckon those two suitcases of clothes got me through two or three months. I was still paying rent in Sydney and my girlfriend packed my car full of pretty much the rest of our unit and helped me get it shipped over and it arrived maybe a month ago. I’m a full Western Australian now!"
In November, Alisha and Glenn celebrated a year since they declared their love for one another in Fiji and officially became boyfriend and girlfriend.
They're not the only success story from BIP season three though - Mary Viturino and Conor Canning are not only still together and living in Tasmania but are also expecting a baby girl in 2021.
