Cassandra then tried to help them out by dropping a hint, ‘he said ‘I hope we… .’ 

Urzila joked, ‘Can hook up later?’

Cassandra’s appearance on the Channel Ten show comes after NW magazine claimed she is now dating Nick Cummins, 30, despite being eliminated on Thursday. 

Speaking to the publication on Monday, an unnamed source claimed Nick ‘The Honey Badger’ Cummins pulled a ‘Blake Garvey’ and abruptly changed his mind about rumoured winner Brittany Hockley.

‘Nick felt compelled to let Cassie go after Britt’s hometown date,’ the source said.

‘The pressure was on for him to prove that Cass wasn’t planted on the show for him, and he made a rash decision – but it wasn’t a decision that he sincerely wanted to make.’ 

The insider went on to allege that Nick and Cassandra will debut their romance after the finale airs.

‘It’s going to be intense – but they’re happy,’ the source said.

Daily Mail has contacted Channel Ten for comment. 

Nick and Cassandra sparked controversy after it was revealed early in the season that they previously dated before the show.

Shocking: The shocking claims are reminiscent to Blake Garvey's infamous love triangle. He proposed to Sam Frost (left) during The 2014 Bachelor finale and dumped her just a few days later for former contestant Louise Pillidge (right)

She recently told Yahoo! Be that she first met Nick on her 23rd birthday in August 2017, a year before their on-screen reunion and that they dated ‘on and off’ for five months.

‘I was going out for my birthday and he just came and met me for a drink and ended up meeting my brother and that was the start of everything,’ she explained. 

The accounting student was sent home last week after failing to receive a rose from Nick.

Before the rose ceremony, rumoured winner Brittany Hockley confronted Cassandra about her sexual history with Nick during the cocktail party.

‘We weren’t dating, or in a relationship, I don’t even know if you would call it seeing each other…’ Cassandra said tearfully.

Brittany asked whether they were ever physical, which left Cassandra feeling flustered.

‘We… like, I don’t know… what to say… like, we kissed and stuff,’ she stammered.

‘I don’t know. This is just a really inappropriate situation. I didn’t want to have to do this. I actually don’t know how to handle this situation… it wasn’t a relationship.’
