“The Bachelorette” Australia contestant Richie Strahan has been photographed as a priest … in a photo shoot.
Richie did not turn to priesthood but he was featured in a sexy shoot where he was dressed like a cleric.
Richie is currently among the eight bachelors left vying for Sam Frost’s heart in the first season of “The Bachelorette” Australia.
The Daily Mail described the Perth-born hunk in a white collar and clerical suit for the shoot with known photographer Meiji Nguyen. Richie appeared with brunette model Jess Yeh.

Strahan, a former Cleo Bachelor of the Year competitor, is quickly becoming a front runner in the reality TV show.
On Thursday, the rope-access technician shared a steamy hot tub date with Sam.
The pair bonded and opened up about their same experience of having divorced parents at a young age, the Daily Mail reported.
He told Sam: “It’s hard for me to talk about my feelings because I’ve grown up around a lot of masculine guys. Growing up was quite hard as my parents separated quite early. The more time I spend with you, the more comfortable I feel.”
Sam in turn admitted: “After today, I can certainly imagine myself with Richie. I know he’s the type of person who could stick by me, through thick and thin.”
In an interview with WHO magazine, Sam described Richie as “gorgeous,” saying: “I wasn’t expecting it … he’s quite shy, it’s go good.”
Richie recalled that he was “bowled over” when he got his first glimpse of Frost, The West Australian wrote.
“And then I joked about being a virgin so that was even worse. I think she spat out some of her champagne when I said that. I’m surprised I didn’t go home that night,” he revealed.
Kieren Nicholas, 28-year-old exercise physiologist, and 31-year-old musician Will Stoker were sent home during the last elimination round of the show.
“The Bachelorette” Australia airs every Wednesdays and Thursdays at 7.30 pm on Network Ten.
