No one knows the pain like a former Bachie!

Don’t think that this year’s Bachelor Richie Strahan is tossing and turning at night over who his chosen lady will be -he’s more likely to go straight to sleep the second his head hits the pillow!

As filming of the final decision looms for the 30-year-old Perth rope technician, former Bachelor Sam Wood, 35, tells OK! that he feels for his successor, who he chatted with at the recent Logie awards.

‘He came up to me and went, “Mate, so much respect,”‘ shared Sam. ‘I could really put myself in his shoes, being in that position last year. I knew how challenging it was and how tiring it was, and I could really feel where he was coming from.’

With Sam revealing that filming would sometimes stretch for up to 18 hours straight, it’s little wonder Richie may be feeling a tad on the tired side.

When OK! asked the love-seeking lad at the Logies what his drink of choice was to help him loosen up on the show, he let us in on his number-one trick: ‘Mixing Red Bull and coffees -it’s a great concoction!’ he revealed.

Poor love…
