The Bachelorette: Brooke Blurton kisses Jamie-Lee Dayz at the first cocktail party

The Bachelorette had its first kiss of the season during Wednesday’s premiere, with Brooke Blurton smooching Jamie-Lee Dayz hours after reuniting on the red carpet.

The pair, who met on Nick ‘The Honey Badger’ Cummins’ season of The Bachelor in 2018, admitted at the first cocktail party they’d had strong feelings for each other since bonding in the mansion three years ago.

Jamie-Lee, 30, said she ‘wanted to kiss’ the 26-year-old but ‘wasn’t going to’ out of respect for the other contestants, before Brooke leaned in and told her: ‘I had to.’

The kiss took place after the two women discussed their past in the garden, with youth worker Brooke saying: ‘I’m going to be honest, it was a complete and utter shock when I saw you on the red carpet.’

‘I didn’t know if you felt the same way about me,’ Jamie-Lee replied.

‘There was so many times in the [Bachelor] mansion, where I would like… want to sneak over to your bed. But I didn’t know. It was scary.

‘If I had have put my feelings out there and you ended up with Nick, then I would have lost you as a friend.’

To Jamie-Lee’s surprise, Brooke replied: ‘I’ll be honest with you, Jamie, I had feelings for you in the house. But I knew that I was there obviously for Nick… I was conflicted. 

‘I kind of felt that it was a bit of a sliding-doors moment for us, that it was kind of like [a] wrong place type thing.

‘I’m so glad that you’re here. I think you are as beautiful as the day that I met you.’

Jamie-Lee looked into Brooke’s eyes and said: ‘I really want to kiss you… but I’m not going to.’

She added: ‘Thank you for, like, not friend-zoning me. I know what I want now. I know where I want my future and I think that we have so much in common. I wouldn’t have been here if it was anyone else. Just know that.’

As Brooke stared back at her, she couldn’t help but lean in for a steamy kiss, telling Jamie-Lee: ‘I’m sorry. I had to.’

The pair then came together for another passionate smooch, with Brooke saying afterwards: ‘It was pretty hot. I’m feeling so many emotions. I’m excited.’

Jamie-Lee, who is openly bisexual, was an intruder on Nick Cummins’ season of The Bachelor in 2018. Brooke had been introduced in the first episode.

During the show’s run, she was the subject of rumours she was more interested in Brooke than the former Wallaby – something both women denied at the time.

‘It’s definitely not true. I have a lot of love for Brooke and she’s such a legend but we’re definitely just friends,’ Jamie-Lee told Mamamia.

‘Just because there are two bisexual girls in one room doesn’t mean that they’re automatically dating.

‘It’s a shame to see that as a society that’s the outcome we come to, just because there’s two people who have similarities. It kind of sucks.’

Brooke also denied the claims, telling OK! magazine: ‘We developed a really great friendship, but there’s definitely no sexual relationship there.

‘I was there for Nick and that was my focus.’

Whispers of chemistry between the pair came after eliminated ‘villain’ Romy Poulier told NW magazine it was common knowledge among the cast.

‘I heard that some of the girls formed a really close friendship. I heard there’s a vibe going on… You get close to everyone and it’s pretty intense,’ she said.

Jamie-Lee was eliminated after just one solo date with Nick, and later revealed she had got back with an ex-girlfriend following the show.

Prior to Wednesday’s on-screen kiss, Brooke told Yahoo of their bond: ‘I think Jamie-Lee and I’s relationship outside the experience was definitely unspoken.’

Brooke explained that when they first met, their ‘priorities’ were different because they were both focused on Nick – who ended up choosing no one in the finale.

She admitted their relationship didn’t blossom after the cameras stopped rolling, but they still had a connection.

‘It kind of never really played out in the outside world, but I think in the years that we had known each other, there was always a connection,’ she said.

Brooke said she didn’t know Jamie-Lee was going to be one of her contestants and was genuinely shocked when they reunited on the red carpet.

‘It was such a surprise,’ she confessed. ‘I didn’t expect it, but it was kind of a nice feeling of familiarity and knowing that you have a connection with someone already.’

When she discovered Brooke was going to be the Bachelorette, Jamie-Lee told her Instagram followers she knew it was ‘now or never’.
