Bachelor star Locky Gilbert is pictured beaming in Bondi Beach with girlfriend Irena Srbinovska – just days after his VERY shady remarks about ex Bella Varelis’ Bondi influencer lifestyle
The Bachelor‘s Locky Gilbert recently took a subtle swipe at runner-up Bella Varelis and her ‘Bondi influencer’ lifestyle.
But despite claiming that he and girlfriend Irena Srbinovska ‘weren’t keen on the whole Bondi vibe’ just days ago, the duo appeared to be having a great time while visiting the beachside suburb over the weekend.
The 31-year-old shared a photo to Instagram on Sunday of himself at Vegan hotspot Eden, alongside Irena, also 31, and former Bachelor contestant Bel Colwell, 25.

He and Irena also spent the night at the glamorous QT hotel, which boasts the sort of quirky decor and trendy clientele that would delight any eastern suburbs influencer.
‘Just your casual day out with the girls,’ former Australian Survivor star Locky wrote in the caption. ‘This is normal, right?’
Just last week, Locky appeared to throw shade at Bella, 25, and third-place contestant Bec Cvilikas, who both live together in Bondi, by leaving a rather eyebrow-raising comment on Instagram.
‘We’re not too keen on the whole Bondi vibe. Give us the mountains any day,’ he wrote in response to a Daily Mail journalist.
During their outing Sunday, Locky was asked by a reporter for The Wash why he was in Bondi despite not liking its ‘vibe’.
He laughed off the question, saying sarcastically: ‘I’m a big fan of Bondi, I love Bondi and I just love the Bondi vibe!’
‘We have to have secrets’: He shared this photo from his ‘secret’ camping trip in the Hunter Valley with Irena, and couldn’t resist taking a dig at some of the fame-hungry stars from his season of The Bachelor who have flocked to paparazzi hotspot Bondi Beach in recent months
Pointed remark: ‘We’re not too keen on the whole Bondi vibe. Give us the mountains any day,’ he responded to a Daily Mail journalist who commented on the post
Nothing there: Bel (left) was dumped from the competition very early in the season, despite enjoying a romantic date with Locky and appearing to get on well with him
‘I’m here for Irena,’ he added, as his girlfriend chimed in: ‘We’re here to go to a vegan restaurant, so he’s doing something that I like!’
‘We wanted to hang out with Bel and get out and about,’ Locky explained.
Bel was dumped from the competition very early in the season, despite enjoying a romantic date with Locky and appearing to get on well with him.
But it appears she has gotten over the rejection and is now on friendly terms with both Locky and Irena.
Hmm! Interestingly, both Bella and Bec live together in an apartment in Bondi Beach, and are both building up their influencer reputation there
Subtle digs: The 25-year-old hit back on Thursday after Locky and Irena (pictured in Sydney on Wednesday) made some shady remarks about ‘Bondi influencers’ that were seemingly directed at her and fellow contestant Bec Cvilikas
It comes after Bella, who was left heartbroken when Locky dumped her in the Bachelor finale, blasted his snide comment about her lifestyle choice.
‘I’m unsure why they’re making references towards me and how I’m living my life. I have better things to do than make subtle digs towards an ex,’ she told The Wash last week.
‘I’ve moved on and so should they.’
