Ben, 35, acknowledges he puts fun with friends above Christie, 28. “I do enjoy getting everyone involved,” he says, “We go from having an intimate dinner, to me organising another three couples joining us.”
Nevertheless, “All my friends like her, even when I’m like, ‘I’m not so sure about her’, they’ve got my back and they say, ‘Nah, man I wouldn’t get rid of her. She’s pretty good, you’re not going to get much better.”
You may recognise Ben from his first reality-TV jaunt, on Georgia Love’s 2016 season of The Bachelorette.
“I definitely didn’t fall in love with Georgia, I think spent I 10 minutes with her in the three weeks I was there [but] I’ve maintained a friendship with her,” he says, adding, “The Bachelorette was a better emotional experience because I didn’t have to stress about my girlfriend and who she’s sleeping in another bed with.”
The Super Switch airs Tues. and Wed. at 7.30pm on Channel 7.
