I cannot tell you how hard the last four months have been. I think it was Sportsbet that started that, they put me on as the winner at the start and then everyone thought it was me. There's been so much pressure to have this responsibility to keep this secret because Australia gets so invested.
Yeah, what even was that sign off?! I was just left so confused by that. I think you actually see the moment my heart breaks… From that point, the reason didn't matter. I just thought, OK it's not you. Get out of here! And I think I just said, "Is that all? Take care and bye!"
Well, it's questionable of course. There's absolutely no doubt that from day one, Nick and I connected on another level. Unfortunately you didn't see all of it [on the show] but it was like it was meant to be.
I absolutely adore Sophie and I just think she's such a beautiful soul. She was heartbroken and she was still happy for me that she thought I'd won. I just think that it was almost meant to be and people were supposed to see women supporting women.
He went to the depths of the jungle I guess as far away as you could possibly go. We are told that he had this commitment prior and the good in me believes that. I think that even if he was here, he would have gone away somewhere in Australia and tapped into the phones and had a chat but I'm just lucky that I have Sophie.
You get to a point where you do finally move on. It's been four months and I don't have any ill feelings towards him. There's no hate and anger anymore… I do feel a bit sorry for him, he's obviously very lost and I hope Australia's not too hard on him because I don't think anyone deserves any bullying.
Yeah, a little bit down the track. After he spoke to Sophie, Sophie messaged me and said, "Oh my god! He's trying to call me. Is he trying to call you?" And I said no and I was a bit upset about that.
Nick just makes his own rules, he does what he wants and nobody can coerce him into doing anything. You cannot produce him! He's just his own strong-headed man. If he wanted anyone there at the end, they'd be there. And if he didn't want them, they wouldn't be. No one can make him do anything.
There's zero truth to that in my eyes. Cass, Sophie and I are all the best of friends and we see each other every day. That's definitely not true but I have no doubt they will maintain a friendship when the time is right.
Well, obviously by talking to Sophie at the start because we were the only people who really knew so we've been each other's rock.
My views haven't changed after this experience. I still just want that person that knows where they're at and is ready to have this amazing adventurous, fun-filled, light-hearted life. It's basically everything Nick would have provided but he just didn't know where he was at.
To be honest, I don't think I would have. I was so honest and true the whole time, I just put my heart on my sleeve and I took a risk. I don't think you can have any regrets. There have been so many positives for me on this.
It's hard because it's so fresh. I think at this stage, Bachelor in Paradise is a no! I'm not sure it's my thing. Bachelorette, if I was in the right headspace and the opportunity presented itself I would consider it.
The best thing was walking into see Sophie! I just can't tell you the feeling… just letting her know that it was OK because it wasn't me either. The worst thing was obviously ten minutes before that when it wasn't me [laughs.]
