She was at the centre of plenty of drama during her time on The Bachelor.
But Roxi Kenny nearly didn’t make it to the mansion, after a nasty accident reportedly left her in hospital just two weeks before filming began in March.
According to the So Dramatic! podcast, the 29-year-old mechanical engineer received 12 stitches after ‘cracking her head open on a metal ceiling fan’.

The Queenslander’s stitches were removed just a few days before she flew to Sydney to begin filming.
Roxi reportedly kept her accident a secret from producers because she feared they might axe her from the show.
‘When she rocked up to filming she still had cuts and bruises on her face but she did manage to cover them up pretty well with makeup,’ the podcast host claimed.

Daily Mail Australia has contacted Roxi Kenny for comment.
It comes after Roxi broke her silence on the real reason for her tearful departure from The Bachelor last Thursday.
She told the Courier Mail on Friday: ‘There was something said to me off camera that was the straw that broke the camel’s back. It hit below the belt.’

Roxi did not disclose exactly what happened, but spoke of the profound impact it had on her.
‘I don’t think it’s important that people know what was said, but at the same time it was the one thing that pushed me that far over the edge,’ she said.
The Bachelor continues Wednesday at 7.30pm on Channel 10
