Bachelor star Florence Moerenhout has revealed she was taken to hospital after her drink was spiked on a night out.
The TV star and model, 32, took to Instagram on Sunday to reveal details of the chilling incident as a warning to other young women.
Florence believes she was slipped Rohypnol or GHB, both of which are considered “rape drugs.”
“Last night I went out for a few drinks and I only had three drinks with some friends and around 10:30 p.m. I was feeling super uncomfortable,” she said.
The star said she thought she had to “get drunk” and go home from the venue, but it made little difference.
“I came home and got sicker and sicker, I kept falling and tripping, I couldn’t stand or sit, I was spinning,” she said.
The star said she “tried everything” to feel better, including a “hot bath and a cold shower,” but “nothing worked,” so she went in an emergency.
“I spent the whole night in the hospital,” she said, before adding that her friend also felt “unusually drunk” after taking a sip of her own drink.
Florence went on to say that topping up drinks is a “problem in Melbourne at the moment” and urged her supporters to be careful.
Florence said she was more confident it was Rohypnol in her drink since she had most of the drug’s symptoms.
These include slurred speech, feeling “very drunk,” dizziness, confusion, fainting, and memory loss, according to Healthline.
‘[To whoever did this to us] I hope God will push your hairline back so far that no woman ever wants to look at you again,” she concluded.
Florence rose to fame in 2017 as a contestant on Matthew ‘Matty J’ Johnson’s season of The Bachelor.
The following year and again in 2019, she starred on Bachelor in Paradise.
Despite stepping out of the limelight in the Netherlands, she returned to Australia in January last year.
