Sophie Monk’s season of the Bachelorette could easily be one of the best seasons to hit our screens yet. While her quest for love sees her looking for the man of her dreams, the contestants of this season’s Bachelorette are strangely reminiscent of the types of people you find in every workplace. So, without further ado, here are the best and worst work colleagues of Sophie Monk’s Bachelorette!
The Workplace ‘Magician’
Apollo may have some tricks up his sleeve but really, he could make anything happen. He could turn the office vibes from negative to positive with a conversation. Apollo is the best of both worlds, an old soul with a youthful energy and his work is just ‘magic’.
The Lunch Thief
After packing a beautiful stacked ham sandwich with delicately sliced cheese, salty tomato and freshly baked and buttered bread before placing it strategically in the communal fridge with a clearly marked label plastered on its plastic wrapping, don’t be surprised if you turn up to a mysteriously missing sandwich right around lunchtime. After urinating in Jarrod’s love fern, it’s pretty obvious that Blake would be the type of colleague who eats your lunch before flat out denying it, the crumbs from your beloved sandwich still on his shirt.
The Micro Manager
This could be good or very, very bad… Jarrod works hard and get his tasks done in an efficient way. Whilst at times his approach can be overbearing you cannot fault the enthusiasm… Jarrod is also always up for an after work wine to wind down.
The Silent Worker
Stu’s work ethic is logical and wise. He may have the most experience in the office and with a simple conversation with him you could take away something valuable. Stu may not say much but he is definitely the dark horse to watch and learn from.
The Gossip Girl
Sam’s always in the thick of the office happenings. He is confident (or cocky) when it comes to uncovering office news and having something to say about it. You may also start to wonder whether Sam actually ever works between all the gossip.
The Work Spouse
James is the smiling face that makes Monday’s bearable. You know you’re in for a good day when James is around! Plus, when you’re at work 5 days a week and are likely spending more time with your colleagues than your family, your work soulmate can always bring a little fun to an otherwise regular work day.
