She was given a big head start in front of all the other contenders when Nick Cummins awarded youth worker Brooke Blurton, 23, the key to his Bachelor pad.
“I think there was some pretty intense chemistry from the start,” Brooke tells WHO. “I was definitely shocked when he started walking towards me with the key.”
Brooke says even though she didn’t think Nick would choose her to give the key, she’s always felt comfortable around him, which is why she used the key as an opportunity to tell Nick about her life—from losing her mum to suicide, to being exposed to drug-fuelled violence as a child.'
“I knew that I had to get Nick to understand who I am and where I come from and I feel that it was reciprocated because he then told me about himself.”
Her honesty paid off with the pair engaging in a steamy kiss at the end of their conversation. “[Our kiss] definitely took me by surprise—but it also gave me an insight into how affectionate Nick can be.”
