Juliette Herrera has emerged as the most intriguing contestants of The Bachelor 2020 following reports of her glamorous lifestyle and star-studded dating past.
She also appears to have undergone quite the transformation before her foray into reality TV.
The fashion editor and stylist, 34, who has spent lime living in LA, appears unrecognisable in photos from her early 20s.
You’d be forgiven for thinking she was a different person altogether.
The images see the star sporting a much more pared-back look with flowing caramel coloured hair and noticeably thinner lips.
She also seems to have swapped casual party looks of flannies and denim for cocktail dresses and heavy makeup.

At the beginning of this season, Juliette caused uproar among fellow contestants when she slipped a secret note to Survivor star Locky Gilbert at a cocktail party. In it, she proclaimed was much more comfortable exploring the outdoors than dolled up in formal wear.
“Dear Locky, you have a huge majestic presence and a beautiful captivating energy that causes me to shake,” she wrote.
“Me in this cocktail dress is not the real me. I don’t wear makeup and I love the outdoors.”
Earlier this week, reports Juliette once secretly dated actor Joel Edgerton emerged.
“Juliette was working as a stylist for (Cosmopolitan) at the time and he was about to start filming Gatsby, so they kept their relationship low-key,” a close friend of the reality star told the Daily Mail.
“They’ve kept in touch and been really cool about their break up, and Juliette has been respectful of his romance with Christine (Centenera).”
Juliette, who was working in the US as a freelance editor and writer for the past three years, even attended a screening of his 2018 film Boy Erased in Los Angeles
Before signing up for her quest for love on Australia’s Bachelor, Juliette led a pretty lavish life, styling some of the hottest celebrities.
The striking Latina beauty has worked with Australian actress Phoebe Tonkin, as well as Vanderpump Rules star Lala Kent.
Juliette worked as a fashion editor contributor at Oyster, as well as fashion editor at Cleo/Dolly magazines in Australia before a stint at Cosmopolitan.
