She was marked as one of the show's front-runners after it was revealed she'd dated the Honey Badger before starring on The Bachelor Australia, but tonight marked the end of Cass' roller-coaster journey to win Nick's heart.
As the final three ladies – Britt, Sophie and Brooke - battle it out for the final rose, Cass says she's still committed to finding her perfect partner , but wants to take some time out from dating for the time being.
"I'm having a break," she tells TV WEEK. "I do want to find someone, but I'm taking it one step at a time".
It's unsurprising Cass wants some time out after her stint in the mansion.
Over the course of the series, she's been branded a 'stage 5 clinger' because of her infatuation with Nick, and some of the other girls also called her out for being a liar after she concealed the truth about what really went on with Nick before the show. And tonight saw Britt confront Cass for that very reason.
While some of the former contestants have said they'd be keen to appear on Bachelor in Paradise, Cass is undecided.
"I just want to end up with someone and I guess that could happen on Paradise, but the whole process was really hard for me," she admits.
"And my final night was so traumatic. It was one of the toughest things I went through. To have one of your best friends confront you… it was horrible. I couldn't breathe".
As for who Cass wants to see Nick end up with, she can't decide between her two best friends, Sophie or Britt.
"They are amazing girls," she explains. "I just know how genuine they are".
We don't have to wait too much longer to find out!
The Bachelor Australia airs Wednesday and Thursday, 7:30pm, on Network Ten.
