It was a pretty awful day to be honest. Just filled with anxiety. In the days leading up to that in Singapore, I was so stressed out and I wasn’t getting much sleep. You kind of just want to know by this point! I’m a very impatient person so I didn’t enjoy it at all!
Yeah, even before you’re chosen to be on the show you have a couple of sessions with a psychologist who works on the show. Then that same psychologist is available the whole way through the show. So at any point you can speak to them and get support.In addition to that, you have a minder. Myself and Lee were kind of kept separate the entire time. We were each assigned a minder who kind of becomes your best friend in a way because you don’t have the support of your other friends and family from back home.
I didn’t speak to the psychologist. I mean, you do have a debrief afterwards, everyone does. But the minder who I had was someone that I spoke to quite a lot about the whole situation. They were a massive support to me at that process.
I guess one of my main concerns about going on the show was I hope people like me! I try to steer clear as best as I can from comments on social media but friends and family forward some nice ones across and give me an update of what people’s perception is.
It’s a hard one to pick. There was nothing to me that was a big red flag.
It was tough. She was more upset just knowing I was upset. There wasn’t any bitterness but my family will always be pretty biased and think that she chose the wrong guy.
I dunno. I kind of feel like I’ve just finished a marathon and the moment I’ve stepped across the finish line, someone’s asked me if I want to do another one. My first response would be no.
It was tough. He was actually one of the first people I messaged when I arrived back in Sydney. I just said I hope all is well and I wanted to let him know there are no hard feelings and I was happy for them.
When I watched it back I was like, ‘wow! I really was nervous wasn’t I?’ I didn’t want to play the safe route, I wanted to be completely honest with Georgia.
It was hard because when I came back, what I wanted to do was forget and move on. When I saw the first preview for the show, I had to run to the TV and pull out the plug cause it was so hard to see her on TV.
Leaving my job! I just moved back from London and I got a really great job as head of partnerships for Peugeot and I was there for about three weeks before I got a call from Channel Ten.
Fortunately they tried to keep it open for as long as possible. After filming had ended, I called them back and they’d filled the job. So, I lost my job for the show!
I’m so grateful! When I arrived back in Sydney, my mum was in town from Brisbane just by coincidence. To walk back into my sister’s home with her there and my mum there and my nephew. It meant everything because they’re part of the reason why it’s been a bit more manageable.
It would be nice to be on talking terms, definitely not every single day. It would be nice if we did bump into each other to have a conversation and it not to be awkward.
No, not yet. I think that’s something I’m not going to rush into at the moment. I’m just enjoying focusing on work and friends and family.
Yeah, I am really happy with it! It’s funny how accurate the show is to how the characters are in real life and how events played out.
Yeah it was definitely not the result that I wanted and a lot of heartache. But at the same time, there were so many amazing memories made that I’m going to cherish forever so I’d definitely do it again.
