The moment she met Nick ‘Honey Badger’ Cummins, she became an immediate frontrunner after sparks flew over their shared interest in football.
But as the finale of The Bachelor in inches closer, it appears Indigenous youth worker Brooke Blurton, 23, will not walk away with the final rose.
Last week, a photo surfaced to Twitter of Brooke, who is interested in both women and men, in a cosy display with another woman while enjoying a hike together.

‘This is obviously not what we wanted’: A source close to the production confirmed to Daily Mail Australia that Nick has split with the winner. Pictured: Corkscrew-haired Nick with Brittany Hockley
Who’s that girl? It comes after footage surfaced of Nick getting close to a mystery brunette outside Beaches Pizza Bar in Manly earlier this month
Earlier this month, Daily Mail Australia exclusively revealed that Nick has already split from the winner of the top-rated reality show.
A source close to the production claiming the Honey Badger and the winner had a short-lived romance before it was all over.
‘The Honey Badger’s relationship is already over,’ they confirmed.
‘This is obviously not what we wanted,’ the anonymous source added.
The new revelations will be a blow for Channel Ten, after the network coped with a similar PR disaster in 2014 when Blake Garvey ended his engagement to Sam Frost.
It is unknown for how long Nick actually dated the ‘winner’ – who is widely speculated to be Brittany Hockley – before they eventually called it quits.

The break-up confirmation comes after footage surfaced of Nick getting close to a mystery brunette outside Beaches Pizza Bar in Manly in early September.
Nick’s manager, Josh White, however, talked the incident down and dismissed it as a simple fan encounter with the curly haired Casanova.
‘As you can appreciate, Nick is a well-known public figure and gets stopped by both men, women and children in the street multiple times a day wanting to chat or take a picture,’ he said.
