How do you feel now after watching the episode back?
I was kind of preparing myself for that episode because I knew that that departure would be quite dramatic. I certainly didn't want to pit myself up against one of the "frontrunners" - that was not my goal at all and I would never want to take away from somebody else's relationship. There's no bad blood on my end toward Jay anymore. Admittedly it was pretty hard to watch, it's just something that I have to go through unfortunately.
A lot of the other contestants have talked about how tough it is in the mansion.
It's hard being in there and constantly comparing your own connection to the other girls. I'm actually glad I left when I did because I feel if I was there for longer, that environment would've been very hard for me to be in so I'm very glad I left when I did in hindsight.
There was a lot of drama for you towards the end but how did you find your experience as a whole?
As a whole I thoroughly enjoyed my experience. I had so much fun, I have made amazing friends and I got to experience things that a lot of people don't get to do.
Looking back, do you have any regrets?
I'm really happy with how I was. I hate living with regrets but my only sort-of regret is just how guarded I was initially. I do feel that put me a step behind the other women and it's not the environment to be putting other people ahead of yourself. I hate talking over people but initially there were so many women there so that's what you sort of had to do. If I were to rewind and start it all again that's the only thing I would do differently. When it's the early days you only have a couple of minutes with him so making a good first impression is absolutely vital.
I'm a firm believer that everything happens for a reason so I think I was there for a reason but I didn't end up with Jimmy for a reason. I'm just waiting for whatever happens next in my life.
So would you do another reality TV dating show?
I would never say never - the whole process I enjoyed so yeah I would!
