Kirralee ‘Kiki’ Morris is the latest girl to be sent packing from The Bachelor mansion after failing to win Richie Strahan’s heart, although the stunner with a down-to-earth attitude is taking it all in her stride.

OK! played ‘20 questions’ with the 28-year-old to learn all about her time in the mansion, and to find out what she’s looking for in a man…

  1. What’s your favourite memory from your time in the mansion?

I have so many amazing memories, but when we got down to the final 10 and we could finally all fit into the one bus to get places, that was really exciting. [Laughs] But seriously, it was a bit surreal that we were down to the top 10 and sharing these cutesy BFF moments, even though we were all at each other’s throats at the cocktail parties.

  1. How did you deal with being shut off from the outside world and your family and friends?

I was going nuts. I was thinking on a daily basis how I could send a message out to the world and hope to get something back. It was so hard not being able to talk to anyone in the outside world.

  1. You’ve got an amazing body! How did you stay fit in the mansion?

Faith and I would get up every morning at 5.30am and go to the house’s gym. We were the only ones who would get up at the crack of dawn – the other girls would stay in bed. Richie took all of the heavy weights, but we would do 5km on the treadmill and then some weights.

  1. What about on the outside? What’s your workout regimen?

I go to the gym every day, so I’ll go in the morning and do 30 to 40 minutes of cardio and then again go back in the evening to do some weights. The gym is so close to my house and I know the people that own it, so it’s really a social thing for me as well.

So thanks to @zanegrosdanisfitness I have muscles!

  1. What’s your day on a plate?

I have an acai bowl or egg white omelette for breakfast and then lunch is always a salad. I’m kind of a vegetarian/pescetarian so it’s usually a stir-fry with extra broccoli for dinner. I also love chocolate but I try to steer clear of sugar. Even in the house I was really proud of myself for eating well and not snacking. Snacking was a problem in the mansion.

  1. Where do you see yourself in five years?

I’m hoping to be living in my own home, be really successful in my career and hopefully be settled with a husband and a dog; and definitely with a view of children soon.

  1. What was your most challenging moment in the house?

It was really hard for me to open up and show my emotions. I knew while the show was being filmed how it would come across on television, but I’m a very sensitive person and it’s hard to show that to people.

  1. Do you have any regrets from your time on the show?

Not so much regrets, but I wish I’d spoken my mind a little bit more. I feel like I should have spoken up for myself because now looking back, I’m the only person I had in my corner to stand up for me.

  1. Who did you become closest with in the house?

Noni and I were closest, there’s no secret about that.

  1. What’s your most embarrassing moment on the show? Aired or not?

Tiffany and I were joking around at the first cocktail party that I was a gangster and I could rap because I had a red bandana in my luggage. That led into me trying to beat box, and Tiffany grabbed Richie and said ‘Oh have you met Kiki she’s a really good beat boxer –c’mon Keeks! Show him!’ And although I can’t beat box, I’m not one to back down to a challenge, so I beat boxed to Richie and it was absolutely shocking. [Laughs]

  1. What’s your biggest fear?

Not seizing a moment when it’s there. I do over-analyse things quite a lot and that’s something I got a lot of feedback from the girls about. They said, ‘Keeks, you think too much about things’, so I’m on a constant battle with myself to start acting on impulse.

  1. What’s one thing most people don’t know about you?

I’ve got two sponsor children overseas, I spend countless hours petitioning for animal welfare organisations, and I work for a few charities that deal with human welfare in underdeveloped countries. I’m quite a philanthropist.

  1. Do you have any secret talents?

I have an amazing memory. I can recite song lyrics and movie lines at the drop of a hat – which honestly sometimes even surprises me.

  1. What qualities do you look for in a man?

Someone who’s generous of their time and treats everyone equally. I also want a warm heart and no sense of ego – if someone’s too proud to say they’re sorry, that’s something no-one wants in a man.

  1. Any dating horror stories?

In Sydney there’s lots of men who think they’re ‘somebodies’ and they know everyone. The kind of man that will walk to the front of the line of a club and then not get let in, while you’re standing next to them thinking, ‘This guy’s a d—head’. It’s a bit cringeworthy.

  1. If money was no object, what would you buy?

I would buy a massive sanctuary and adopt a lot of animals – that’s one thing I’m going to do when I have a better job. The thought of animals with nowhere to go breaks my heart.

  1. What’s on your bucket list?

I’ve travelled a lot, but I’d love to do a year travelling South East Asia and go to where my two sponsor children are.

  1. What’s your greatest indulgence?

Shopping. I love being able to spend money on myself and money on my family.

  1. Do you have any beauty secrets?

I am big on admitting what I get done. I have hair extensions and they’re my biggest must-have, without them I don’t feel like me. I also get SGA laser treatment on my skin, which helps me with my breakouts and really keeps my skin looking healthy.

  1. What are your turn-ons and turn-offs?

Self-indulgent people who only talk about themselves are a huge no-no for me. Turn-ons for me are people who are motivating and genuinely like to see people do well  – and someone who is capable of seeing their girlfriend have male friends.
