Strahan broke not only Nikki’s heart when he chose Alex Nation in the Bachelor 2016 Australiaa finale. Many slammed Strahan for his decision. However, like any fine woman, Nikki did not speak ill of the man she loved.
Nikki admitted that she was “head over heels” in love with the rope technician. Unfortunately, Strahan told her that he is in love with somebody else.
In an interview with Woman’s Day, Nikki made it clear that she never considered herself as the clear frontrunner in the show. Nikki said all she knew at the time was that she liked being around Strahan and it was the happiest that she has ever been.
However, she admitted in another interview that she was not expecting Strahan would tell her that his heart is for Alex. Nikki added she knew as soon as she was in front of Strahan during the finale that it will not be a happy ending for her, PopSugar reported.
“The minute when I was in front of him, I knew. He was not my Richie, there was a completely different energy around him at that moment, and I think it did register before I heard the words … I knew from the minute I got there that it wasn’t going to go the way I wanted it to. The only way I can describe it is that he was not my Richie. He’s Alex’s Richie.”
The blonde beauty from Western Australia that she did not regret the experience of joining the reality show. However, when asked if she will accept The Bachelorette Australia gig, all Nikki could say is no. Nonetheless, she is not totally closing the door that she will one day find The One in a reality show.
The Bachelor 2016 Australia finale recorded a whopping 1.324 million viewers. The reality show is definitely coming back next year. Channel Ten has announced that the show will return for its Season 5 in 2017.
It was the moment Richie had been waiting for, the moment to finally tell the girl of his dreams that he loves her. https://t.co/TDNZW3eTTa
