Bella was left dumbfounded during the Bachelor finale when Locky admitted that he couldn't see a future with her, despite professing his love for her the day before.
"When I told you I love you, like, I meant every single word," Locky said to a confused looking Bella on their final encounter.
"But... I have fallen in love with two girls. And I know you don't, like, sort of see where your future is at the moment. I think I need just a little bit of certainty. I just don't know if I can see us working," he finished.
"We connected on so many levels right from the beginning, some you saw, but most you didn’t. Having three months outside of filming completely changed the aspect of the show, it brought normality to the connection and we grew into what felt like a real relationship," she confessed.
"Looking back; I’m proud of myself. I gave it my all, I was true to myself and I wore my heart on my sleeve. Whilst it’s not my fairytale ending, the laughs and the memories will last a lifetime," she added, before thanking everyone who lent their support to her along the way.
Locky and Irena are currently going through the final stages of hotel quarantine before starting a new life in Perth, but Locky appeared to throw some shade at Bella back when they were enjoying their last days in Sydney.
When one fan commented on a photo Locky uploaded of himself and Irena on a hike, writing: “Oh no thanks for the invite! Looks fun,” the 2020 Bachelor replied, "have to have some secrets. We not to keen on the whole Bondi vibe. Give us the mountains any day 😂”
Since Bella and her Bachelor bestie Bec Cvilikas live together in Bondi, it's probably for the best that she and Locky are on opposite ends of the country.
