One might think that after such a tough conversation Ali would have been given a fair bit of time to compose herself before seeing Taite, alas this was not the case.
Speaking to Nova’s Fitzy and Wippa this morning Ali revealed she had less than half an hour to get herself together before facing Taite and confessing her love,
“I think I had 20 minutes (before Taite arrived), I had a little (makeup) touch-up, and that was it.”
Also speaking to Fitzy and Wippa, Taite revealed the finale process wasn't much easier for him, telling the radio hosts, “I was a nervous wreck.”
Taite continued to discuss the pep talk the producers gave him before seeing Ali, “I was in the car, and I was practising with a couple of producers — they said to me, ‘Just make sure you listen to every word that comes out of Ali’s mouth, because she’s either going to say she loves you or not.’”
It looked like this whole affair was just as hard to live as it was to watch.
