The Bachelor NZ: Naz blasts member of live audience
The claws were out during The Bachelor NZ live Women Tell All event on Monday night, as a member of the audience began heckling outspoken bachelorette Naz Khanjani from the crowd.
During a sit down interview with host Mike Puru, an audience member began heckling and swearing at Khanjani from a seat within the SkyCity theatre.
"What was that? Do you want to come here and say it, I dare you," Khanjani replied to the audience.
"I f**king dare you. You guys have no f**king idea what it's like, because you weren't in my shoes" the runner-up continued.

During the awkward altercation, a notably shocked Mike Puru watched on in disbelief, while Khanjani slammed the audience member for criticising her and calling her a "b***h.
Khanjani missed out on winning the competition when Jordan Mauger chose Fleur Verhoeven during the final rose ceremony.
The event, which took place on Monday night at Auckland's SkyCity, invited members of the public to purchase tickets and "upgrade" their general admission to a VIP package, which included a Bachelor-themed "pre-party, canapes and drinks on arrival" for a tidy sum of $109 per person.
The live-audience recording was strictly closed off to the media and will air during Tuesday night's reunion special The Bachelor: The Women Tell All at 7.30pm on TV3.
