WE’RE all still reeling from the fact that Nick “Honey Badger” Cummins decided to dump both finalists on The Bachelor in favour of staying single.
It was gobsmacking — and simply not the fairytale we all feel we’re owed in the finale.
It’s hard to imagine going through such a huge process and deciding to just give up at the final hurdle. Hell, even Blake Garvey, our most infamous Bachelor, delivered the dream ending and gave it a (brief) shot with Sam Frost.
But, from one of the very few people who actually know what it’s like in Nick’s shoes, he made the right decision.
Speaking to news.com.au, 2017 Bachie Matty Johnson, who’s still happily dating winner Laura Byrne, explained that if Nick wasn’t 100 per cent invested, he needed to get out when he did.
“What people need to realise is that there really is no ‘halfway’ of doing the show,” Matty said.
“You can’t really just dip your toe in. You’re either all in, or you’re not, and I think for Nick to have picked one of the girls and said like, ‘Hey, let’s just see how this goes and give this a little crack,’ it would have been a lot worse.”
Can you bloody believe it! 12 months ago we got spat out into the real world and our secret was no more. We often joke about the fact that we found each other on reality tv and I’m so glad that’s how it happened – it means I get to take a trip down memory lane and relive it any time I want. Love you @ladyandacat 😘
