Aspiring interior designer Claudia is looking for someone she can be her “lovely weird self with”. At 21 she’s travelled extensively, and has been to every continent except for Antarctica.  She’s very close to her brother and parents; they are there for her no matter what and always remind her that if things aren’t going quite right, they will get better.  She is such a fan of Anthony Kiedis from The Red Hot Chilli Peppers, she has read his autobiography four times!

What’s the most romantic thing you’ve ever done for someone? I’m quite fond of the old love letter! Otherwise, creating a study ‘tool kit’ for someone. I put lots of quirky and cute things into a tool box and left it in their room on their bed for them to come home to.

What made you want to be on The Bachelor NZ? A new experience and an alternative way to find love. If it doesn’t work out, at least I will have hopefully learnt something new about myself.
