Their romance was exposed on Monday, when photos of the pair kissing were splashed across the tabloids.
And Bachelor stars Rachael Arahill, 23, and Vakoo Kauapirura, 23, were spotted packing on the PDA while at a Sydney supermarket earlier this month.
The pair dressed casually and looked comfortable around one another as they perused the aisles of a local Woolworths.

Rachael covered up her toned figure in a leopard print puffer jacket, teamed with black leggings and coordinating sneakers.
The personal trainer tied her straight blonde locks into a ponytail at the nape of her neck, and opted for a glamorous makeup palette.
Rachael drew attention to a matte foundation, defined brows, a false set of lashes and a slick of pink gloss on her very plump pout.

Earlier this week, photos of the pair kissing were published in New Idea magazine.
‘They formed a really strong friendship in the mansion and their feelings for each other quickly developed into something more,’ a source told the publication.
‘They hooked up one night after one of the first cocktail parties. It was never filmed and producers never found out.’

‘It’s very casual at the moment,’ said Rachael, adding that the couple rarely have arguments.

‘It’s pretty new, we’re just taking it slow. There’s not much to report!’ she explained.
