Tara Pavlovic and Sam Cochrane's engagement was announced on last night's finale episode of Bachelor In Paradise, and now the bubbly Queenslander has slammed former Bachelorette Sophie Monk.
After Monk's Bachelorette series ended, the blonde reality star publicly branded Tara's fiancé as a 'performer', and now Tara has some terse words for her.
'She owes him an apology,' she said in an interview.
'Sophie slammed Sam in a public forum. She called him a ‘performer’ and that’s not fair.
'Everyone assumed he was this awful person. The repercussions were hurtful. But the more he opened up to me, the more attracted to him I became.'
In an interview with the Kyle and Jackie O Show last year, Sophie blasted Sam for going on the show to try and 'be a star'.
'It’s always a performance for the camera, this guy,' she said. 'I realised he’s there because he wants to be a star.'
Tara and Sam have found love on the Channel 10 dating show, and have already started planning their wedding.
