Bachelor Australia Contestant Goes On Epic Rant About Struggles And Pride Of Being A Redhead

Bachelor Australia Contestant Goes On Epic Rant About Struggles And Pride Of Being A Redhead

Hundreds of thousands of people likely tuned into the first episode of another season of The Bachelor Australia.

There were plenty of the usual thrills, spills, drama and meme-worthy moments, but few stick out like Zoe-Clare.

The contestant announced early into the show that she was 'loud, blunt and fiery red head' and would call anyone out if they crossed her.

Well, Zoe-Clare put that talk into walk when another contestant, Areeba, interrupted her conversation with the bachelor, Locky, to see if he wanted to talk to her.

What followed next was a rant unlike no other.

Zoe-Clare said: "I think after Areeba stole Locky from me, to me it's disrespectful. I don't understand why out of everyone here, she'd pick me. Honestly, I get it. I'm the only redhead in the whole entire house. And the rest of them, I think the only colours are blonde, brunette, then there's me.

"I think that's exactly why Areeba is targeting me. Of course, the redhead. It's just not appropriate. What's wrong with a ranga? I'm sorry, do you want me to dye my hair every 10 seconds, I'm so sorry but this is natural guys. This is not going anywhere.

"I don't care if you're black, white, caramel, whatever. Ranga. I want to be here like, you know what, we can win. We can win because I'm not blonde. I'm not brunette. I'm not anything other than what I am. I'm not going to pretend to be. I'm me. And if he likes me, then f***ing awesome.

"I don't want to go through this experience being different because, this sounds so stupid, but because of the colour of my goddamn hair. And that sucks. The colour of my complexion.

"The one time that I can walk in something and I'm like no one has my hair. No one has my bone structure, no one has my body. And they don't. That's not a lie. They don't.

"But you're still different. You're still a f***ing ranga at the end of the day and that sucks because they think, no matter what, oh it's fine, she's different. Like did Areeba do it to any of the blonde girls? Any of the brunette girls? No.

"You know what? I'm proud of being a ranga. I will be a ranga until the day I die. We are more striking than any other human... that walks this Earth. Don't have our blue eyes or brown or our green eyes that can literally stop traffic. You sure as s*** don't have our hair.

"I'm not going to bite my tongue anymore. The way people treat girls and men with red hair...needs to end. Right now."

Australians watching at home couldn't help but be amazed, shocked, dismayed and bewildered by the speech.

Thankfully for Zoe-Clare, she received a rose during the first ceremony and will live to fight another day.
