The Bachelorette Australia star Courtney Dober's first appearance on The Bachelor Winter Games featured an "embarrassing" downstairs situation courtesy of the freezing weather - but Kiwi star Lily McManus didn't seem to mind.

The series, which sees 30 former Bachelor and Bachelorette contestants from around the world come together for a second shot at love, was filmed in the snowy state of Vermont- with temperatures less than ideal for Courtney to debut in a skin-tight skating suit, according to the Daily Mail.

"There was a little shrinkage Down Under!" the Australian was hilariously heard saying after he hit an ice rink for a challenge with his male co-stars.

Watching on were the female competitors, one of whom was former Bachelor NZ star, Lily McManus.

Clearly not dissuaded by the reduction in Courtney's skating suit, the pair have hit it off, with rumours that they have found lasting love.

Courtney, 31, and Lily, 21, were seen having a flirty chat back at the lodge.

The pair even shared a kiss in the first episode, with Courtney choosing Lily to stay on the show.

Lily has confirmed that she found love on the series, with Bustle speculating the most obvious choice at this stage is, indeed, Courtney.

The best day with this crew of legends! #valentinesday #bachelorwintergames

Meanwhile, Courtney's Australian co-star Tiffany Scanlon appears to have a more limited lifespan on the series.

The blonde was only briefly featured on the episode, and told her Instagram fans on Saturday that her introductory clip had been cut by the show's producers.

"I Guess Their [the producer's] main focus was the American cast and the people coupling up. I can tell you I was much more involved than what they have shown," she wrote.
