Filming is well and truly underway for this year’s season of The Bachelorette.
And on Thursday, the franchise’s first bisexual star Brooke Blurton was pictured for the very first time filming a date with one of her potential suitors.
The couple grappled their way up a cliff in the Blue Mountains, NSW.

The 26-year-old certainly appeared to be enjoying the mystery gentleman’s company – as they were spotted sharing a steamy kiss towards the end of their action-packed date.
He also received an all-important rose, meaning he would be safe from elimination at the ceremony later that day.
The pair were said to have arrived to Blackheath by helicopter, where they enjoyed a romantic stroll to get to know one another better.
They then quickly changed into climbing gear and helmets, before abseiling down a sheer cliff and down to a suspended platform.
They spent the afternoon talking and drinking hot chocolate with marshmallows, which was hand-delivered down the cliff by a suit-wearing daredevil.

Speaking to Studio 10, she admitted it’s ‘inevitable’ some of the contestants will find love with each other in the mansion, instead of with her.
‘If it happens, who am I to stop it?’ she added. ‘I think it’s one of those things… it could be inevitable to happen and that’s totally fine.’
‘Look, I’ll be disappointed that we didn’t get to develop that relationship for whatever reason,’ she said. ‘It is what it is, and it will happen. I’ve just got to take it as it goes.’
