A former Bachelor contestant has faced court charged with trafficking cocaine after she was allegedly found with thousands of dollars in her car and her Melbourne home.

Georgia Tripos and her friend Kristiana Karakostas appeared in Melbourne Magistrates Court on Friday for a committal hearing to determine if they will stand trial.

The court was told $3500 was found in a safe at Tripos’ parents’ home, where she lives, as well as $2000 and $1136, in purses found in her car.

It is alleged Tripos had no answer when asked where the money came from.

Defence lawyers argued the money could have been obtained legitimately.

The court was also told text messages downloaded from the women’s phones showed them talking about a substance called “M”.

However, lawyers argued any jury shouldn’t “guess” or speculate what “M” was.

The hearing continues.
