The race for Richie Strahan’s heart on The Bachelor is heating up, and last night unfortunately saw three ladies leaving the mansion.

OK! talked to Tolyna, 31,  about how she feels leaving the show, and what she thinks Richie is after in a woman…

How do you feel about leaving the show?

A bit upset because I was enjoying my experience and I wasn’t ready to leave yet… but I knew it was coming.

What are your feelings towards Richie now?

I didn’t really have any feelings before, and I don’t have any feelings now. I just hope he’s found what he’s looking for.

Do you think he has any favourites?

Oh, for sure he has favourites. He really liked Megan and Alex. He definitely wants a blonde, that’s his type.

Who do you think will win?

Definitely a blonde… I have a gut feeling it will be a blonde. I mean, the chances are pretty high considering how many are in the house. Sometimes I get the feeling that’s the only reason why I was put in the house – I’m just his type. Tall, blonde, athletic, blue-eyed.

Was there much competitiveness?

In regards to Richie, some girls definitely thought they had a connection with him early on. Whether that was from physical time they had spent together or because they’d previously seen him on TV, it did lead to a lot of jealousy.

What’s next for you?

I’m just going to keep going on with my life. Personal training, modelling, travelling.
