Last month, New Idea revealed that Nikki was spotted filming a commercial in Bondi, which they quickly attributed to the rumours that the series spin-off was finally making it's way to Australia.
Then, earlier this week, NW claimed to have 'confirmed' that she would be joining the show.
"The Bachelorette wasn’t the right fit for Nikki – after having her heart broken in such a long, gruelling process on The Bachelor, she knew she didn’t want to do that to someone else," their supposed ~source~ said. "But Paradise is different – it’s a chance for her to have fun and potentially meet someone great in the process!"
Now, Nikki has revealed she is definitely not on board.
"I was lucky enough to be in Sydney a few weeks back to film a television commercial, not a Bach in Paradise promo," she wrote on Instagram with a photo from her shoot. "My idea of paradise is relaxing with my family & friends - laughing, joking and just having a lovely time together (a glass of bubbles in hand while looking out over some form of water body is preferred but not a necessity 😋) I'm doing my best to live my paradise right here. Right now. I wish anyone that chooses to go on Bach in Paradise all the very very best, but I won't be joining them."
"I will 100% not be doing this!" Richie commented on Instagram.
Meanwhile, Blake took to Facebook with a blunt statement, writing: "No way, no how, no chance am I going on Bachelors in Paradise. That is all."
With all this ~fake news~ going on, we guess we'll just have to wait for the verified contestant list from Channel Ten.
