In a twist no one saw com­ing, the Honey Badger wins back his true love

Woman’s Day (Australia) - - Reality Update -

The na­tion has ea­gerly fol­lowed Nick “Honey Badger” Cummins on his jour­ney to find last­ing love, and fi­nally Aus­tralia’s lar­rikin Bach­e­lor has – with Brooke Blur­ton!

In a shock end­ing that no­body saw com­ing, So­phie Tie­man, 25, and Brit­tany Hock­ley, 31, were both dumped at the fi­nal rose cer­e­mony in New Cale­do­nia.

“It wouldn’t be fair to en­ter into some­thing that a few months down the track I’d be break­ing her heart,” said Nick, 31, of his de­ci­sion to choose nei­ther girl. “I came here for a chance at love and now I’m go­ing to have to start again. She’s out there!”

Now, Woman’s Day can ex­clu­sively re­veal that on his re­turn from New Cale­do­nia, Nick couldn’t stop think­ing of fan-favourite Brooke af­ter she dra­mat­i­cally walked away from their re­la­tion­ship, leaving the Honey Badger “bro­ken”.

Sources say Nick was “in hell” for days af­ter Brooke left him be­cause all along he thought she’d be the one stand­ing by his side at the end. Days af­ter the fi­nale was filmed, Nick took an ex­tended break in WA – Brooke’s home state.

“He wanted to re­veal his true feel­ings for Brooke,” con­fides

a friend friend. “Nick’s a gen­uine guy and he didn’t want to hurt any of the girls, most of all Brooke. When he re­alised she was the one he had true feel­ings for, he ended things with the other two and fi­nally con­fessed to Brooke how he re­ally felt – took him long enough!”

Be­fore Brooke’s shock exit, Nick had de­signed a ring with the in­ten­tion of giv­ing it to Brooke at the fi­nale to show he was com­mit­ted to her and their re­la­tion­ship.

“Nick was ex­tremely en­thu­si­as­tic about the de­sign process with our team, want­ing the ring to en­com­pass the emo­tional and spir­i­tual jour­ney that he has been through dur­ing the show,” re­vealed Larsen Jew­ellery’s Kate Reid. The ring is be­lieved to be in “safe keep­ing” with Ten, and Nick’s hop­ing to get it back to gift to Brooke when he re­turns from walk­ing the Kokoda Trail.

Some be­lieve Nick’s trip could be to avoid the pub­lic scru­tiny, which haunted his pre­de­ces­sor Blake Gar­vey in 2014. Af­ter he pub­licly dumped Sam Frost for sec­ond run­nerup Louise Pil­lidge, he was pub­lic en­emy num­ber one for many months.

But what­ever the rea­son, one per­son will be wait­ing for Nick on his re­turn – and that’s Brooke.

Brooke is now wait­ing for Nick to re­turn from over­seas so they can rekin­dle their ro­mance.

The pair have al­ways shared a spe­cial bond.
