Young youth worker Brooke has already wowed The Bachelor's Nick Cummins and during episode five of the show, the pretty brunette had his family smitten.

In fact, such an impression did Brooke make she won the family date and got some one on one time with The Cummins.

"There's something really special about her," raved Nick.

"I'm comfortable with her being with the family, she just fits in," the Honey Badger adds with a look of wedding bells written all over his face.

"Brooke is beyond her years," adds Nick's big sis Bernadette who scored some one on one time with Brooke before the family date.

Meanwhile, Brooke is being hit with the realisation she might be in at the deep end.

"It hit me how real this is getting and how I'm invested," Brooke tells the cameras

Indeed, family means the world to Nick and if she's won them over it might just mean she's swiped the trophy right under frontrunner Brittany's nose.

"Family is number one. I think a lot of people, when they're put in a certain position, will come to that conclusion and you'll just do whatever," he said.

Brooke is equally tied to her family and previously admitted that leaving her loved ones back home in Carnarvon in Western Australia to go on The Bachelor Australia was tough.

"I really missed my family, especially my little brother," the 23-year-old said. "We're super-close. I was so homesick, I could have walked."

It was only the fact that she had a spark with Bachelor Nick Cummins from the outset that kept Brooke in the game.

"It got to me how much I missed home," she said.
