Were you surprised to go? We saw a bit more of you last episode with the psychic medium and you even had some one-on-one time with Locky.
I didn't see it coming to be honest, I was a bit shocked. But at the end of the day he just must not have felt it and you just have to believe that that was that. It is the way it is.
So there were real feelings for Locky there?
Yeah definitely, especially because of all that Covid time. I'm fine now but maybe at the time I didn't see any of it happening. I felt it at the time but in hindsight you get confused with how you're feeling with everything.
How long was that hiatus between the time in the mansion and Love in Lockdown
There was a two month break, give or take. We all kept in contact and had free reign to talk to Locky whenever we wanted. I tried to sit back, I didn't want to overwhelm him because he had nine people to talk to. I talked to him when he would call or FaceTime me and I'd try not to be too clingy.
There are two names that everyone's thinking will be the final two but do you have an inkling of who will win judging by the connections you saw?
It's kind of hard because as I watch it I see he has connections with so many of the girls. I don't know who he ends up with but whoever he does, it'll be great I think.
The female friendships that come out of The Bachelor are some of the nicest stories. Who were you closest with in the mansion/online?
Nicole and Clare were probably my two best friends in the house but then I was pretty close to Izzy, Steph, Bella, Lei, Charley. All that crowd!
Would you be open to doing Bachelor in Paradise?
Yeah, if I was still single and that came up definitely. I'm not one to say no to an experience and I believe you can't really lose from it so I'd definitely be on board. It would be so much fun.
For anyone thinking of applying for The Bachelor next year, what advice would you offer them?
I would say don't do it during a pandemic! [Laughs] I would say go into it with no expectations - just be as vulnerable and open as possible. Enjoy every day that you have there and give it your all.
Did you have a particular highlight?
I think the whole thing was a highlight. There's not one moment where I was like 'This is the best.' Definitely towards the end for me was better because I got a lot more time with Locky and the extra time with him that I had was a nice night that I'll keep. The whole thing was such an experience.
