‘HE PLAYED US’
CASS: I CAN’T SWITCH OFF MY FEELINGS
Just because The Bachelor has finished doesn’t mean Cass is over Nick as well. “I was in love. It’s taking time to heal,” admits the pretty Sydneysider. “I definitely had the strongest feelings because of what we’d been through in the past… I was very hurt when I left the show.” Despite the fact Cass says she accepted Nick’s explanation that he wasn’t feeling it, she can’t switch off her emotions. “My feelings are genuine,” she says.
BRITTANY: HE PLAYED US FOR A FOOL
“When I first realised that Nick hadn’t chosen anyone, I was mad at the start,” says Brittany, who had been the favourite to steal the Bachelor’s heart. “Then I thought, ‘What a waste of time!’” Brittany says she was upset on behalf of all the girls who’d invested both their time and their feelings in Nick, only to have him baulk at making a commitment. “No one was asking him for marriage but we were invested.”
SOPHIE: HE WASN’T IN IT FOR LOVE
Heartbroken contender Sophie also says she feels played by Nick. “Do I feel like I wasted time towards the end? Probably, yes! I think he may have checked out a little earlier than the finale actually.” Sophie says while she hopes Nick became the Bachelor for the “right” reasons, she says only he can know what his motivations truly were. “I suppose we’ll never know who he really wanted to take to the finale.”
The girls were disappointed by the Honey Badger’s behaviour.
