Nick Cummins faced an onslaught of criticism for ending The Bachelor a single man.
And as he continues to avoid the spotlight, the 31-year-old former Wallaby has headed north to Townsville, Queensland.
As reported by The Townsville Bulletin on Wednesday, the rugby star posed for photos with several fans on Flinders Street.

Apparently, Nick told one of his fans he was travelling to Cairns to work on a project for National Geographic.
‘We just waited awkwardly, and dad asked them if they thought he’d take a photo with us and he said, “Yeah, for sure”,’ said local woman Tayla Bolton.
‘He said, “Come on, guys, let’s do it!” So we all got a photo with him.’

Nick was recently spotted in the coastal town of Bowen, in Queensland’s Whitsunday Region, getting his photo taken at the 10-metre high Big Mango.
Meanwhile, fans of The Bachelor are still reeling over this year’s controversial finale.
Appearing on Network Ten’s Have You Been Paying Attention? on Monday, the show’s host Osher Günsberg said even he was also ‘shocked’ by the outcome.

Nick infamously left the show a single man after dumping both finalists, Brittany Hockley and Sophie Tieman at the last hurdle.
‘You can see why he made such an excellent Wallaby. Charging towards the try line and right at the foul line, side-stepped!’ joked Osher.
The Bachelorette continues Thursday at 7:30pm on Network Ten
