The Bachelor 2018 winner may have just been revealed by a series of sneaky photos published by theDaily Mail on Thursday morning – just hours ahead of the finale.
Taken in early June (when filling wrapped) the photos show Nick Cummins returning from New Caledonia on the same day as Brittany Hockley, the rumoured winner. However, we do know from previous seasons that the new couple get a few days alone before returning to home after the show has wrapped.
Sophie Tieman, who is believed to come second, arrived back several days earlier. According to the outlet, Sophie made a quick exit after the final rose ceremony. While we can't republish the exclusive photos you can view them here.
In case you missed it, Brittany has been a strong favourite since the week one - dropping a huge spoiler on social media.
Hockley, who is from Nick's hometown of Port Macquarie, NSW, shared a post to her page with the caption: "Not used to getting so glammed up for a Honey Badger!" While most of her friends flooded the photo with compliments, one friend wrote, "Britt we are all enjoying the journey but just tell us what we really want... Am going heavy on Sportsbet or not???"
To which Brittany responded by 'liking' the comment.
And now, the Daily Mail has done some more snooping, noticing that Nick's sister has wished Britt a Happy Birthday and Cummins' brother has gone ahead and 'liked' the comment–which means his family and Hockley have met and are still on good terms. Interesting. Eagle-eyed fans even noticed that Nick 'liked' Brittany's post.
Ahead of tonight's final episode, there are conflicting reports that Cummins might actually end up single after the show. And with Channel 10 teasing an epic final twist only one thing is for sure - we're glad that we won't have wait long before all is revealed...
