“The Bachelor” Australia frontrunner Heather Maltman may have inadvertently revealed who won in the current season of the reality TV show.

In an interview with Monty and Zoe on KIIS FM, Heather said she had found a friend “as well as a partner” in Sam Wood.

“We did have a little bit of time just the two of us which was really nice,” Heather told the radio duo.

“And at the end of the day it shows we have an incredible friendship the two of us and that was a part of, I guess, my experience with Sam that I’ve enjoyed the most. The fact that I made an incredible friend as well as a partner.”

It could be nothing, but fans picked up her use of the word “partner”, thinking  it has a meaning, news.com.au reported.

Kyle and Jackie O of KIIS FM’s also agree that Heather might have won Sam’s heart based on her answers. During separate interviews with Heather and another Bachelorette, Snezana, the hosts asked if Sam warned them when he was going to kiss other contestants.

“No, I have had no contact with Sam since the show ended,” Snezana answered. While Heather replied, “Yes. He and I kind of very briefly talked about it. That’s also because, you know, like I said, we’re really good friends.”

Meanwhile, rumors have also indicated that the winner of “The Bachelor” Australia is already pregnant with Sam’s baby.

NW magazine reported that the woman Sam had chosen is around three months pregnant already.

NW added that the show’s top brass are worried that the pregnancy news will come out before the show concluded because the winner has “already got a little tummy.”

Aside from Heather and Snezana, five more contestants are left in the mansion – Bec, Ebru, Sarah, Emily, and Nina.

“The Bachelor” Australia 2015, which airs on Network Ten, is just on its ninth episode.
