Since her debut on the Australian entertainment scene in season two of The Bachelor, Sam Frost has worn a variety of hats. Since leaving her position on Home and Away in December of last year, the 33-year-old has been out of the spotlight. Sam has given her first in-depth interview since leaving the programme, and she has spilled a lot of beans.
Sam stated in an interview with Stella that she still hasn’t come to terms with the continual criticism she receives.
“It’s still going on. “It’s insane,” the former actor stated in an interview with the Daily Telegraph.
“I don’t know many people who have been chastised for every move they’ve made.”
“Can you tell me what I’m doing wrong?” I’m not sure what you’re talking about. “I’m not sure what you’re talking about.”
Sam was portrayed as the “unlucky in love” type early on in her showbiz career.
In the view of many Australians, her appearance on Blake Garvey’s (remember him?) season of The Bachelor marked the beginning of this.
Blake chose Sam to be the recipient of the final rose before getting down on one knee and proposing to her. Sam agreed, but the couple broke up soon after.
Sam also discussed her mental health issues during the conversation.
“At the best of times, I’m a really anxious person,” Sam said, who has been seeing a psychologist since 2015 to help her manage her mental health.
Sam added that the continual anxiousness, along with the tremendous loss of losing loved ones, has made the last several years particularly difficult.
In 2012, she lost her stepfather, and her mother’s spouse recently died of lung cancer.
She told Stellar, “Grief doesn’t get any easier.”
“However, there is beauty in mourning someone because it demonstrates how much love you had for them, and it’s also wonderful because you can feel them everywhere – in your decisions and in who you are.”
The discussions about Sam Frost’s association with COVID vaccinations were the true meat and potatoes of the interview.
Abbie Chatfield and Matt Agnew, both Bachie participants turned influencers, weighed in on her vaccine apprehension.
Many Australians at the time considered Sam’s hesitation as unproductive, and he was heavily chastised as a result.
This was primarily due to government-set vaccine targets that had to be attained in order for limitations to be eased.
“I was ripped to f**king bits,” Sam explained.
“I believe it’s normal to be sceptical about a new vaccination,” she says of the time.
“I was apprehensive about the impact on pre-existing medical issues.” I was concerned about long-term consequences. I was a nervous wreck.
“I worked closely with my psychologist and spoke with my doctor, who was very supportive of my decision to wait [for vaccination].”
“It was awful to see unvaccinated individuals being bullied,” Sam said.
“Friends I’d known for years ceased communicating with me. I never stated that I didn’t want it. “Are you kidding me? I’m not an anti-vaxxer.”
Since Boxing Day 2021, Sam Frost has been fully immunised.
