The Bachelor 2016 Australia Richie Strahan has chosen the one but rumors indicate that he regrets his decision.
Alex Nation reportedly won the final rose ceremony but Strahan is allegedly unhappy with his decision. Apparently, the Perth hunk is in love with Nikki Gogan and not with Alex, New Idea magazine claimed.
“He’s confessed to close friends that he made a huge mistake and now knows [Nikki] was The One,” the magazine wrote. According to the publication, Richie could not bear hurting Alex and he thought Nikki could handle rejection better.
Both Alex and Nikki are fan favorites in this season of The Bachelor 2016 Australia. Nikki was the first contestant to score the first kiss and first solo date with Strahan.
Alex, on the other hand, undeniably has chemistry with Strahan. She received the single white rose and also spent several times alone with Strahan. Last week, Alex showed to Strahan photos of her son for the first time. However, viewers also saw her breaking down in several occasions when Strahan dated other women in the mansion.
The publication also shared photos of the final three – Alex, Nikki and Olena Khamula – filming in Bali. It added that locals confirmed all three hopefuls shot romantic scenes in and around Sofitel Bali Nusa Dua Beach Resort.
Network Ten dismissed the New Idea report, calling it misleading and unsubstantiated.
The magazine’s claim seems to be in contrast to Strahan’s statement as well. The rope technician earlier told the Daily Telegraph that he already found the one in the Network Ten show and he is definitely happy with his choice. Strahan added the woman he chose was an incredible woman, and he is enjoying every moment with her.
Meanwhile,The Bachelor 2016 Australia will be having its hometown dates this week. The final rose ceremony will air next week.
