At one point, Perth’s Brooke Blurton was the hot favourite to win Honey Badger Nick Cummins’ heart on season 6 of The Bachelor.

However, in a late move no one saw coming, Brooke decided to leave the show on her own accord (breaking our hearts instead).

As Brooke geared-up for her own season of The Bachelorette, which premieres tonight (Wednesday 20), she told The Bunch about a seriously awkward encounter she had with him and an event not long after she dipped on him in 2018.

“He kind of beelined me,” she told Clairsy & Lisa. “I was trying to avoid him the whole night.”
