The Bachelor Australia

Nick Cummins: All the girls The Bachelor has kissed so far

Three awkward dodges and four steamy pashes!

As a footy player The Bachelor's Nick Cummins is used to dodging any unwanted attention.

And as the season gets into gear, it appears The Honey Badger is applying quite a few of his dodging tactics to his awkward encounters, especially when it comes to kisses.

In episode six, during the singe date with Rhiannon all seems to be going well until he hands her a rose and kisses her on the cheek.

"Umm should we kiss now, is that what we're supposed to do?" Rhiannon asks uncomfortably.

"Umm should we kiss now, is that what we're supposed to do?" Rhiannon asks uncomfortably

Sensing the discomfort Nick says, "Umm, I dunno," then murmurs something about drinking the rest of the wine and makes the scene even more awkward.

Suffice it to say Rhiannon goes and has a chat with one of the producers and talks about how "f-ing awkward" kissing on camera is and Nick is left staring at his empty wine glass.

He later tells the camera that he's had quite a few kisses already and needed to "rein it in".

That said, it's possibly one of the worst kiss dodges yet and it's not the first, here are some of the worst and best of the season so far.

Nick rolls his eyes and clears his throat before giving Cat a kiss… ON THE CHEEK

Cat's disaster move
In episode four Cat found herself in a similar situation on her single date with Nick.

"I feel like Nick was giving me every indication that he wanted to make out with me. There was that sexual chemistry," Cat boldly told the cameras.

Yet, when she makes her move, it's possibly the most awkward moment yet.

"Am I going to tempt you?" Cat said as she slugged her arm around him.

Nick rolls his eyes and clears his throat before giving her a kiss… ON THE CHEEK.

"You're going to give me a kiss on the cheek?" gasped Cat.

"Mmm… are you cold?" Nick says quickly dodging the question.

To say the moment is awkward is a huge understatement. In fact, even Cat admitted it was bad.

"It was F-ing awkward," she told the cameras, before quipping: "You can't blame a girl for trying!"

Nick, used to dodging unwanted attention on the footy field, dips his head and Romy's lips land at his neck where she smooches for a while

Romy's neck slurp
Romy is given the second single date with Nick, where he takes her to his uncle's pizza restaurant in Sydney's Manly.

After some flirty pizza-making fun, Romy and Nick settle into a couch for some red wine and intimate chats.

Nick offers Romy a rose, which in her eyes is the green light to go in for a pash.

Nick, used to dodging unwanted attention on the footy field, dips his head and her lips land at his neck where she smooches for a while before eventually making her way to his face and lips where she scores a peck.

"Romy came in for a kiss with pace," Nick told the camera in disbelief. "She came in hot, real hot."

"Only thing for me is that I like to hold off a bit and establish a real connection and try and make it more meaningful," Nick added.

Nick, trying to drop a hint on Romy suggests they "turn it down a notch".

He tells her stuttering, "It's about love and I would hate to hurt anyone's feelings, it's not my thing."

Meanwhile Romy has a second attempt at kissing Nick's neck. Disaster!

But they haven't all been terrible, there's also been passionate encounters with frontrunners Brittany, Brooke, Sophie and Dasha.

Viewers have hailed this kiss as the defining moment frontrunner Brittany stole Nick's heart.

Calling her a 'goddess' Nick made his move after their first single date together.

The two locked lips in the pool and it appeared Nick was loved up lock, stock and barrel.

And it's not just The Badger that was smitten. Brittany admitted had feelings too.

"I feel like I can definitely fall in love with him," she told the cameras.

Brooke seized her moment after bringing him bacon sandwiches and come to bed eyes

Brooke's bacon sarnie
After seeing Nick all loved up with Brittany, youth worker Brooke decided to use up her Bachelor key and let herself into his pad armed with bacon rolls and come to bed eyes.

After guzzling down breakfast the two enjoyed a little footy session outside before Nick said he needed mouth to mouth resuscitation.

A passionate kiss followed and Brooke sealed the deal, leaving viewers wondering if the young 23-year-old might steal the grand title off Brittney.

The Russian kiss
Single mother Dasha and Nick Cummins found themselves enjoying a passionate session of tonsil hockey on their single date together.

In fact, so taken was The Honey Badger, he found himself talking about children.

"Would you like more?" he questioned as if he were asking whether she'd like to make a baby with him.

"If it's with the right person yes," purred Dasha suggesting he was.

And that's it. You can literally see Nick cartwheeling off into hills along with Dasha and their 16 little gymnast athletic children.

Now that's what you call a kiss.

After generously applying lip balm, Sophie enjoyed a pash with Nick that she described as 'magical'

Sophie's magical snog
After generously applying lip balm to her cosmetically enhanced lips, property agent Sophie found herself snogging Nick on their single date, which she later described as magical.

"The kiss was magical. It was exactly what I wanted. Both of us opening up today has definitely brought us closer," Sophie gushed to the cameras.
