Yeah our last date was really nice – I thought it went well myself, so I don’t know what the reason was… He never gave me a reason. He’s gotta pick a girl I guess… and he has found someone he likes better.
[Laughs] I’ve heard! You know, I was quite excited by the concept of it when I first heard that people wanted me to be the Bachelorette, but after seeing how my brother was edited, I don’t know it really upset me… I don’t know – I feel like you’re trusting other people to find you the love of your life, and if they’ve done that to my brother, you know, then they don’t really care about me.
It was so far from the truth! You know, he’s nothing like that. He’s so nice and he has been quite upset about it, and I feel guilty about he was dragged into that.
People have said online, “Oh well, I wouldn’t date her just because of her family.” And it’s just like, “No! That’s an awful thing to say.”
Yeah! Look I felt I could’ve been as well. I don’t know, like, we got along like a house on fire. We had so much fun together – so much fun! Hometowns were fun. He got along with my family so well. Yeah, he did fit in really well.
No, after hometowns we were separated from each other. I knew I had a fantastic date, but I also knew that Matty was dating my mates.
Yep exactly, I had absolutely no idea I was going home. You know, he was so cuddly and he was just so touchy feely with me on that date.
I have heard people talk about that, but I don’t know. That would make me angry because how dare you do that to my friend!?
As soon as I didn’t get a rose, it all clicked that this was a TV show. And I was out of that bubble. And it clicked that maybe he was the way he was just for the purpose of the TV. But I was absolutely fine!
Yeah, I think reality kicked in and I realised… And you feel as if it is so real, you feel like he likes you so much and, you know, you don’t doubt anything! But as soon as I didn’t get a rose, it wasn’t anything like I thought it was...
I was absolutely fine and I didn’t cry. Like, I wasn’t even upset I think yeah… In one of my interviews, one of the questions was “Are you upset? You should be more upset? But I thought why should I be more upset, like why?
Like why should I sit here and be upset about this guy?
Yeah, I’m very head strong! I knew when I went in that the possibility of me getting this guy was quite small, and I’ve never thought that I would end up with him. I was surprised that I made it as far as I did. I think I would’ve been more shocked if he chose me.
Like, I would’ve been like, “WHY? HOW?” I got the outcome I expected and, yeah, I’m totally fine with it! I guess when you go onto a show like that you need to expect that…
No, I don’t regret going on the show. But I wish I didn’t trust people in the way I did going on the show.
It’s been tampered so many times. I’ve been tampered with, you know, the girls in the house, the villains who were trying to bring me down and they’ve been tampered with production, on the whole brother situation, too…
Yeah, that’s a bloody joke! And the necklace, and the stuff about my mum! There have been a lot of malicious rumours that have stemmed from tiny things in the house.
People have gone and blown things out of proportion and taken them out of context, and I really regret trusting everyone…
Oh my God, I wouldn’t even hook up with Derrick. [Laughs] He was like the bartender and of course we all got excited when he came because we knew we were getting alcohol!
He did like me, I could tell. But he flirted with everyone! I didn’t treat him any differently to the way I treated my friends or any of the other staff. I never gave him my number. However, since all of this has happened I reached out to ask him what the hell was this? But yeah I don’t know that’s another thing – I don’t know who to trust!
It’s all false!
