First NW reported that the former Wallabies star buckled to pressure when he let Cassie go after Brittany’s hometown date, but he regretted his decision.
“Nick felt compelled to let Cassie go after Britt's hometown date,” the source said.
“The pressure was on for him to prove that Cass wasn't planted on the show for him, and he made a rash decision – but it wasn't a decision that he sincerely wanted to make.”
Now, further to this, a source has told New Idea that Nick “struggled emotionally” after filming the finale episodes.
“He didn't expect things to end that way and wasn't really prepared to have feelings for more than one person at a time,” the source says.
“She understands why he did what he did. She believes in fate and thinks this whole thing will just make them stronger,” the source added.
However it plays out, we won’t get to see Nick doing any promo or answering any tricky questions following the finale sadly, because he will reportedly be in Papua New Guinea doing the Kokoda Trek…
