It is such a whirlwind!
I look back now and it’s actually been a long time since it started. You’re consumed by something for a really long time and it controls your life.
Definitely! Hands down! [I was] absolutely smitten with Matty.
It was always going to be Matty’s journey and it was his choice who he fell in love with. It’s not me, I can’t force it.
It has been a very up and down process watching the show.
[Laughs] I think people say that in a nice way but in the end, Matty came second. He got his heart broken.
I’d hope so.
It’s always going to be a bit awkward because you’ve got two girls who are smitten with this guy. And you’ve got a guy who genuinely has feelings for both of us.
That day was such a blur. And I... Gosh.
Oh my gosh it was COMPLETELY different. It was on another scale, this rose ceremony.
It’s all leading up to that final decision and then it’s all over.
It’s been a long time coming. It’s been months. I’ve had a while to prepare for it.
I think after watching the finale, you know the answer to that...
Up until now, we haven’t seen each other since the show aired. And I think that’s appropriate.
[Sighs] This is going to sound so cheesy and I know how cheesy I sound but during those moments it was just the two of us.
Oh my gosh! Yes definitely. The girls earlier in the competition aren’t really as invested. You know this is how the show works so you go along and deal with it.
Ummm it’s been good and bad.
I’ll be at Channel 10!
Yes! Matty is definitely my type.
That was such a fun day and we all just clicked!
They’re very protective over me.
They really were!
Good question! I mean I’m still single [Laughs.]
Not at all! I wouldn’t change a thing.
I walked around the mansion with Lisa.
Ummm… I don’t think I could to be honest.
