'I'll Be The First To Admit It': 'The Bachelor' Star Rachael On Her Lips And Plastic Surgery

Rachael was brutally trolled during her time on the show for the size of her lips.

From the moment she stepped onto our screens in a wedding dress to her exit from 'The Bachelor' mansion when Matt Agnew sent her home after discovering she had a crush on a crew member, to say Rachael Arahill has caused chatter is an understatement.

But there's been underlying commentary throughout the show that has been far more personal: that has been about the size of Rachael's lips.

"Rachael looks like she's having an allergic reaction to her own lips!" tweeted one viewer during one of this season's shows.

"Rachael and her lips live in two separate postcodes," added another, with many more asking: "What is wrong with Rachael's lips?"

Yet despite the negative commentary, the 23-year-old told 10 daily the comments really haven't bothered her and she's definitely not losing any sleep over it.

"It's funny, people seem very quick to judge somebody's appearance, which is kind of like pathetic, really," she said.

"I mean, the way I see it is that no one who is doing better than you will be putting you down. I'm not really upset about it. I couldn't care less, to be honest."

Rachael said she does inject her lips with filler but made the mistake of having them re-done just before she went into the mansion.

"I'll even be the first to say my lips looked too big -- I had just had them redone before I went in and they looked huge! They were very swollen -- I'll be the first to admit it," she told 10 daily.

While Rachael admits she has only had her lips done, suggestions that she has had surgery over the last six years, she explained, are not true.

All I've had done is literally my lips, so I guess they're saying I have good genes, so I'll thank Mum and Dad, that's what I'll say to them.

Yet when it comes to her view of plastic surgery, Rachael said: "I'm all for it, if it makes you more confident -  go for it!"

"I don't see why not. Each to their own, I think. It's their own body, people can do what they want if it makes them happy."
