She shocked the nation when she dumped Matt Agnew not once, but twice during last Thursday night's explosive episode of The Bachelor. Although fans were left very confused as to whether she genuinely had feelings for the astrophysicist, Helena Sauzier has finaly opened up about the debacle, admitting we were not privy to a lot of the drama that went on with Matt behind the scenes.
“I don’t know how much I am allowed to go into it but he forgot our meeting on the red carpet, then he got my occupation incorrect — he asked if I was a theatre nurse and I was like, what? Wrong girl," health coach told The Daily Telegraph.
“And he also forgot where I was from, Mauritius, and that had formed the basis of so many conversations we had over dates and stuff. So him getting three things in a row wrong — my heart kind of sank," she added.
The 25-year-old continued: “My whole family was kind of like, this is not a good sign. My feelings were strong then I took him getting all the above wrong as a sign that the feelings weren't being reciprocated.”

After Matt chose to keep Helena in the competition and sent Emma Roche packing instead, the former contestant is still harbouring some resentment. Speaking to Popsugar on Friday, the brand manager took a thinly veiled swipe at Helena, admitting: "I'd rather be known as the clinger than a b***h."
Emma—who told Matt she was falling in love with him on Thursday night—went on to admit that Helena's shock/unfair entrance at the rose ceremony definitely played a role in her elimination.
"She pulled him out because of how her hometown went down, and I didn't know that at the time, which is why I was so shocked and not impressed," she began. "Having watched the episode, I can see why she wanted to clear the air, and maybe that Matt just wanted to explore where her head was at."
As for how she felt when Matt picked Helena over her, we can sum it up in one word: heartbroken.
"I was actually really sad about [leaving] because I did have really strong feelings for Matt, but at the end of the day if someone doesn’t reciprocate the same feelings for you, there’s no point sitting around crying about it".
During the hometown visits, Matt expressed his concerns about moving forward with Emma, revealing he was a tad perturbed when she told her friends she was more than ready to move interstate for him.
And although he once said he was grateful she's been overly forthright about her feelings, it seems to have scared him off.
"Emma's feelings have. moved forward so rapidly, and so far ahead of my own. I mean...yeah, there is a chance I could fall in love with Emma. But there's also a good chance that I might not, in the time we have left."
