Update: Bachelor in Paradise premiered Wednesday night and Ms Viturino's quick witted commentary made her an entertaining narrator for episode one.
Ms Viturino expressed her interest in contestant Glenn Smith at the Bula Banquet and admitted she has previously messaged him on social media.
"I am really really worried ... I am putting all my eggs on Glenn's basket," Ms Viturino said.
"Paradise is full on. The boys have the power now, so if Glenn gave me his rose I would be so happy."
Warracknabeal resident and former Bachelor contestant Mary Viturino is back looking for love, this time on Australian reality TV show Bachelor in Paradise.
The 32-year-old said viewers can expect a lot of drama in the upcoming season of Bachelor in Paradise which airs Wednesday night on Channel Ten.
"The thing is I don't remember half of the things I said, so I am bit worried because I have no filter," Ms Viturino said.
"You can expect lots of laughs because I always say something crazy."
Ms Viturino appeared on the seventh season of The Bachelor Australia in 2019 with Bachelor Matt Agnew but was eliminated in episode 10.
She said she loves being apart of reality TV but is also hoping to fall in love.
" The struggle is real ... I am 32 so I am not looking for a fling," Ms Viturino said.
"I am going into paradise looking for someone that actually wants a relationship."
Ms Viturino said this time she was more relaxed being on reality TV compared to her previous experience on The Bachelor.
"I was less nervous. It was different because I was in Fiji and it was more chilled," she said.
"We have all been in The Bachelor mansion and through the same experience, so it felt like we already knew each other."
During the COVID-19 pandemic Ms Viturino has been homeschooling her six-year-old daughter and working as a chef at a cafe in Warracknabeal.
"I have had to keep the secret for awhile, so I am excited that people now know I am on the show," Ms Viturino said.
"I can't wait for it to air. I have been counting down the hours every day."
