The most ambitious crossover of all time?
The Bachelor Australia‘s Romy Poulier used to dance with former Australian child star Nikki Webster, we can reveal.
“Romy used to be one of her backup dancers in the day,” a source confirmed. “Nikki also played Brigitta in [the 1999] The Sound of Music stage show when it was in Sydney. Romy played the same character during the Brisbane run.”
Romy shared a throwback photo with the “Strawberry Kisses” singer, now 31, on her Instagram in 2016, featuring the two girls rocking some very noughties style, including butterfly hair clips and pink eyeshadow.
These days, the 29-year-old Queenslander is busy dealing out her own kisses to Nick Cummins on the sixth season of The Bachelor.
“We had a really, like, romantic kiss. It was hot,” she told the other bachelorettes when she returned to the mansion. “It was the right time and the right place, and the right moment to do it. It wasn’t tacky, it wasn’t forced. It just happened.”
Since Nikki rose to fame for her performance of “Under the Southern Skies” at the 2000 Sydney Olympics’ opening ceremony, she’s gone on to open her own dance studio chain. The Sydney native is also married and a mum to 4-year-old daughter Skylah.
The Bachelor Australia airs Tuesdays and Wednesdays at 8.30pm on Bravo.
