Bachelor Nick Cummins frantically applies deodorant moments before group date

He’s begun filming his season of The Bachelor after being officially announced as Channel Ten’s newest suitor two weeks ago.

And on Monday, Nick ‘Honey Badger’ Cummins was seen frantically preparing for a group date with a host of eligible ladies at the Sydney-based mansion.

The hunky larrikin, 30, appeared wide-eyed as he was given a can of deodorant from a crew member on set.

Nick stood near the large oak door of the infamous Glenorie property as he readied himself to use the Rexona spray.

The sports star, who has played in the rugby sevens and for the Wallabies, appeared to study the label as he held a bottle of water in his other hand.

Nick then lifted his shirt to provide a decent application of the product on his underarms.

The curly-haired athlete cut a casual figure in jeans and a button-up plaid shirt that provided a glimpse of his muscular torso.

As Nick will have more than 20 women competing for his attention and affection over the series, he appeared to take his grooming seriously.

After dousing himself in the anti-antiperspirant, Nick appeared to raise his arms in an effort to dry the product.

The move comes after previous Bachelor Richie Strahan vehemently denied rumours he had terrible body odour while filming his season in 2015.

When greeting the ladies for the group date, there appeared to be smiles all round as Nick confidentially welcomed each lady with a hug and kiss.

In an interview with The Daily Telegraph, an unnamed source recently claimed that Nick had known hopeful Cassandra Wood for more than 12 months and the pair were ‘more than friends’ before her appearance on the show.

However, a spokesperson for Network ten remained tight lipped on the potential pairing, even refusing to acknowledge Cassandra’s imminent entry into the Bachelor mansion.

‘Ten will neither confirm or deny speculation about the identity of rumoured Bachelorettes on this season of The bachelor Australia and looks forward to revealing the contestants to viewers later this year,’ the spokesperson said.

With Port Macquarie-born Nick’s down-to-earth charm, it’s believed producers are hoping he will connect well with audiences. 

‘Viewers loved Sophie’s authenticity and the fact that she was so down to earth. Ten felt they might be able to replicate that with Nick,’ a source for Network Ten reportedly said to The Sunday Telegraph.
