Who Is Richie's Perfect Match?

Three beautiful Bachelorettes remain in the race for Richie’s heart. So with the decision of his life on the line this week, we thought we’d assist the Bachelor with our own compatibility test.

Olena (‘The Slow Burner’)

Meant to be…

She’s got the X-factorSince Olena arrived on the scene and purred a sultry Slavic saying in Richie’s direction, he’s barely been able to remove his jaw from the floor.

Just good friends…

She’s got an ex-boxer daddyAny suitor worth their salt wants daddy’s approval, but seeking it from Olena’s is a more intimidating proposition than most, given he used to box professionally.

She attacks with her eyesWe appreciate a good eye advance as much as the next person, but Olena’s predatory peepers just might be a little too hot for the Bachelor to handle.

She’s a camping unenthusiastWhile Richie’s all about embracing nature, it certainly wasn’t love at first mozzie bite for Olena, who spent most of their camping date wanting out.

Alex (‘The White Rose-Bearer’)

Meant to be…

She’s seductive Whether she’s evoking Pretty Woman with a dazzling dress twirl or locking Richie into her moony-eyed tractor beam, Alex has hardly needed the white rose to demand his attention.

She smooches seafoodWhen you really want to let the Bachelor know you’re a catch, kissing the catch-of-the-day isn’t the best way to convey the message.

She’s got a very scary brotherIf looks could kill, Alex’s brother Adam would have done terminal damage to our shaken Bachelor seconds upon meeting him. Be afraid, Richie, be very afraid.

Nikki (‘The Homegirl’)

Meant to be…

Just good friends…

She’s hat-hair intolerant Nikki quickly moved to tousle the Bachelor’s barnet back to life when he removed his cap on their country date. ‘Hat hair, just don’t care?’ We believe she did.

She’s suspicious of seafood

If Richie ever hopes to be cooked a seafood supper by his special someone, Nikki’s not knowing fish head from tail isn’t a good place to start.

She’s got a big brother-in-lawDon’t let his name fool you, we’re not talking Tintin’s puppy here; this Snowy is a red-blooded Aussie bloke who clearly wouldn’t take kindly to Richie doing wrong by his sister-in-law.
