The Bachelor goes to kindy, Lisa makes her move

HUDDLED at a small wooden table, sipping on air from miniature teacups while surrounded by screaming five-year-olds...

Not exactly the type of date you'd expect on The Bachelor, but last night's episode on Channel 10 couldn't have been more romantic for Coolum's Lisa Hyde.

"I absolutely loved the preschool date. I was missing my little nephew at the time so it was so great to spend the day with them - and Blake, of course,'' Lisa said.

"I want kids so it was nice to be in that environment.



"But it was an eye-opener, five-year-olds are hard work."

It was the 27-year-old's maternal instinct that captured the attention of 31-year-old bachelor Blake Garvey.

"I know that Blake wants kids so it's nice that he sees that in me," Lisa said. "I think it's really important to recognise those qualities in a partner."

In tonight's episode a group of new bachelorettes storm the cocktail party.

"At first I found it a bit of shock," Lisa said. "But I feel we have already connected, we both have sparked up some chemistry so I'm confident that is lasting.

"New girls entering the house hopefully won't change that."

Initially attracted to Blake's good looks, Lisa said it wasn't long before she found him to be "so genuine" with "such a kind heart".

"He is supportive and someone who I could definitely lean on as a husband,'' she said.

"We will challenge each other too, which is important."
