Irena has the brains and the beauty - according to the Daily Mail, she's a Macedonian native, and her roots are no doubt entrenched in culture from the South Eastern European country.
In fact, a source told Daily Mail Australia that Irena's name should be pronounced "Ee-renna" (with a European-sounding 'r'), instead of the version heard on TV - "Eye-reen-ah".
"Not many people call her 'Ee-renna' really, because she doesn't choose to go by it and doesn't like to have to correct people," they explained.
In the hometown visits, we'll no doubt see more of Irena embracing the culture with her family.
And interestingly, her heritage has also given rise to another unique link she shares with past Bachelor winner Snezana Wood - she is also Macedonian.
Yep, the winner of season three Snez stole the heart of Sam Wood, eventually marrying the Bachelor and having two children, Willow, aged two and one-year-old Charlie.
Given their raging success as a Bachelor poster couple, perhaps it was her Macedonian charm that held Irena in good stead with this year's chosen bloke Locky?
Irena quickly left an impression on Locky after pulling out a stethoscope during their very first cocktail party together and observing Locky's heartbeat.
"I think I heard your heart skip a beat right there," Irena joked with her hands inside Locky's shirt.
Working as a nurse in Melbourne, Irena also has a caring side to her - something Locky clearly values.
"Life as a nurse is messy, challenging and an endless cycle of shift work but it's also the most rewarding and inspiring job," Irena has said of her job previously.
She's also a big fan of the outdoors - and as a fellow passionate hiker, Irena and Locky certainly look to be perfectly suited to each other.
