Sophie’s secret sleepovers with Bachie
It seems naughty Nick's been playing off his leading ladies in the wake of his recent relationship turmoil! With his heart broken after Brooke walked out and a love-flop fling with Brittany all but over,
the Bachie found solace with blonde bombshell Sophie in the wake of his relationship woes.
"She was seen staying at Nick's parent's house in Sydney. They have a timeshare property and it was a way to see Nick without being spotted," says a source.
"Production have strict rules about being spotted with the contestants once filming wraps and what better way to avoid the paparazzi than the Cummins' family property."
In recent weeks Sophie, 25, has relocated from Queensland to Sydney's Manly Beach – close to Nick's home! Now insiders wonder if the pair will strike up a relationship after all.
Bullied Cass fights back
She's been portrayed as a stage-five clinger and dubbed this season's Jarrod Woodgate, but on-set sources claim Cass was stitched up by producers and made to look and act like a crazy Honey Badger admirer.
"The producers saw how besotted she was with him and exploited that," says an insider. "They asked her to write everything she feels about Nick in a diary and encouraged her to talk to him about her feelings.
"She was nervous and the producers took advantage of her. It was cruel – she's such a beautiful girl."
Cass, 23, had choice words when it came to defending herself.
"It is not a true portrayal of me," she fumed. "And people saying that I'm a stage-five clinger and stalker is nasty and untrue."
WATCH: Cass is reunited with Nick Cummins at the first cocktail party.
Brooke walks out
In a twist that nobody saw coming – not even the Bachelor himself – show favourite Brooke walked out on her romance with Nick, leaving him heartbroken.
"Brooke left because she was just not falling for him," a friend says.
"She was rejecting his advances and realised her feelings weren't as strong as his. Given this, she felt it was fair that she took herself out of the equation."
Sources says the 23-year-old was a shoo-in to win the show with Nick after getting the key to the Bachelor pad and gaining his family's seal of approval.
However, friends suspect she may have had stronger feelings for fellow bisexual contestant Jamie-Lee after reports surfaced the pair "vibed" inside the Bachelor mansion.
