The Bachelor's Heather Is In The New McDonalds Ad -- What It Means For Her Chances

Heather is tipped to win Sam's affections in this season's The Bachelor Australia but she's also winning cash prizes in a new ad for McDonalds.

Would the winner of The Bachelor be allowed to star in a commercial for McDonalds?

McDonalds Australia confirmed to The Huffington Post Australia the actress in the ad is, in fact, contestant Heather Maltman.

The spokeswoman also said the commercial for the fast food restaurant's Monopoly promotion was filmed in mid July.

While the exact filming dates for this year's season aren't known, the children's boot camp group date that aired last week was filmed on April 15, according to

April 15, people!

That means Heather would have well and truly been part of Bachie Sam Wood's world by July.

We don't want to rule out a favourite contestant, especially when there are only five girls left, but we'd be surprised if The Bachelor Australia let their winner appear in a McDonalds ad.

Then again, stranger things have happened on The Bachelor...
