BACH­E­LOR SE­CRETS EX­POSED

New Idea - - Contents -

It was the most dra­matic fi­nale in Bach­e­lor his­tory. Nick ‘The Honey Badger’ Cum­mins fought back tears as he dumped his fi­nal two ladies – Brit­tany and So­phie – on na­tional TV last week, leav­ing fans shocked and dis­ap­pointed.

But while Nick, 30, may not have found The One on the re­al­ity show, New Idea can re­veal the hand­some lar­rikin is head-over-heels in love.

Ac­cord­ing to in­sid­ers, now that the dust has set­tled, Nick and fourth run­ner-up Cass, who Nick dated prior to the show, have rekin­dled their ro­mance – but are des­per­ate to keep it a se­cret, fear­ing pub­lic back­lash.

“They kept hook­ing up af­ter the show fin­ished,” dishes our source, ad­ding that Nick re­alised he’d made a mis­take by send­ing home Cass, 23, as soon as Brooke walked out and he only had Brit­tany and So­phie left stand­ing.

“There’s no deny­ing that Cass and Nick had a good con­nec­tion and a lot of chem­istry. He hated that he’d let her go, so he de­cided to walk away from both women and chase a fu­ture with Cass.”

The pair, who both spent time over­seas ahead of the fi­nale in at­tempt to avoid the me­dia, are said to be al­ready talk­ing about get­ting mar­ried and start­ing a fam­ily.

“A lot of fans thought Nick and Cass should’ve wound up to­gether and their

dream came true,” adds our in­sider.

And it looks like there may even be a baby in the mix!

“Nick heard ru­mours that Cass thought she might be preg­nant on the day of the fi­nale and it clouded his de­ci­sion,” says our source. “He found him­self want­ing a baby and want­ing more with her, and that’s what ce­mented his de­ci­sion.”

While hearts broke across the na­tion for Brit­tany and So­phie, our in­sider says the ex-wal­laby, who’s just re­leased a book ti­tled Guide to Life, was “chuffed” once film­ing ended so he and Cass could re­unite.

“The morn­ing af­ter the fi­nale, Nick rang his pub­lisher [Pan Macmil­lan Aus­tralia] to vent,” our source says. “He was ropable and hated the Bach­e­lor ex­pe­ri­ence. So much so that Nick’s book was orig­i­nally ti­tled Guide to Life and Love but Pan Mac re-did the cover once they re­alised he hadn’t found love on the show, which is why he booked a trip to Kokoda to es­cape.”

Ad­ding in­sult to in­jury, fans have ques­tioned Nick’s real mo­tives for do­ing the show, as he con­tin­ues to spruik brands in­clud­ing Tradie Work­wear, Iron Jack Beer, Amarok V6, Oak­ley and Go­pro on so­cial me­dia.

“I find you quite fake,” one In­sta­gram fan wrote. “You’re too busy pro­mot­ing and mak­ing money.”
