The Bachelorette's Lesina Nakhid-Schuster and Lily McManus share their best and worst dating stories

There's everything from run-ins with men with secret girlfriends through to spaghetti-stained pashes!

You don't date 22 men at the same time without coming away with a few juicy stories to tell.
Bachelorettes Lesina Nakhid-Schuster and Lily McManus sat down with us to explain how their unlikely bond helped them on their journey to find love.
"What surprised me about Lily was her emotional intelligence," Lesina explained. "Every time I was thinking something Lily would be thinking it too."
But that's not all these two have in common.
It turns out the women had both already experienced their fair share of romantic ups and downs before they set foot in The Bachelorette mansion.
As well as revealing who their first Bachelorette crushes were, the playful duo happily dished on their dating disasters. There's everything from run-ins with men with secret girlfriends through to spaghetti-stained pashes!
You won't want to miss the re-enactment from Lesina that makes Lily squirm. Or Lily gently teasing Lesina about slipping Marc a whole lot of tongue.
Check out the video at the top of the page to see the Now To Love team catch up with the bachelorettes and hear all about their dating history. Mishaps and all!
