‘I was bullied’: The Bachelor’s Gemma White reveals how she was tormented as a child before losing 26kg

She’s the glamorous beauty queen competing for Locky Gilbert’s heart on The Bachelor.

But despite her good looks, Gemma White struggled with bullying and self-esteem issues as a teenager.

In a resurfaced interview with the Courier Mail from 2017, the 28-year-old revealed how childhood bullying led her to embark on a weight loss journey at 15.

‘I was 26kg heavier than I am now’: The Bachelor’s Gemma White has opened up about being bullied as a child due to her weight 

‘I was 26kg heavier than I am now. There’s nothing wrong with being bigger or smaller, but it’s a matter of being happy,’ she said.

‘I was huge compared to everyone else in my year and I was bullied for that, and the fact is that one in three children are bullied.’

The blonde shed the pounds over two years and eventually joined a modelling school at 17.

'I was huge compared to everyone else in my year and I was bullied for that, and the fact is that one in three children are bullied,' she said

However, her slimmed down physique attracted more bullying, with many people questioning just how she’d managed to drop the kilos.

‘I then copped bullying on the other side with people saying, “Oh, she must be bulimic” but I was able to overcome that,’ Gemma revealed.

She went on to be crowned Miss Australia Continents in 2018.

‘To have my name called as the winner of Miss Australia Continents was a realisation of all my hard work and volunteering and that everything I love has all come together,’ she gushed.

Gemma now works as a real estate agent on the Gold Coast.
