However, despite the awkwardness of the situation, Keira said the video didn’t faze her because she has no romantic feelings towards Richie.
“It wasn’t awkward because I never had any emotions or attachment to him, I have no interest in him whatsoever," she said. “It didn't bother me, it's probably not something I would share but each to their own."
Richie’s true feelings for the single mother were revealed on the emotional final episode, choosing her as the winner and leaving runner-up Nikki Gogan visibly heartbroken.
However, despite shock from viewers, Keira says Richie’s choice wasn’t a surprise to her.
“I feel like Richie and Alex had a really great connection all along, they are really well suited,” she explained. “I actually really like Alex because the whole time throughout the process she was genuine, you could tell she really liked Richie.”
Keira also said she wouldn’t be surprised if Richie, who hails from Perth, relocated to be with Melbourne-based Alex.
“I think Richie will move for Alex,” she said, adding: “Maybe they will both move to Sydney.”
Despite Nikki’s heartbreak following the finale, Keira revealed a possible silver lining for the reality star.
“Nikki could be the next Bachelorette – I feel she was portrayed in a really nice light and positioned in a really positive way for a certain reason – and now she basically has the support of the whole country behind her - it makes sense,” she said.
