The student, who is one of the youngest contestants on the show, says she met Nick’s uncle at his Manly pizza restaurant – the same venue he took co-star Romy Poulier on a date.
‘He took me to Uncle Mike’s too! It’s actually pretty funny. Only Nick and I knew,’ she said.
Cassie claims to have been taken there by Nick a few times in the past, but chose not to burst Romy’s bubble after she returned from the date in high spirits.
Daily Mail Australia has reached out to Channel Ten for comment.

On Wednesday, the over-eager starlet took her clingy nature to a new level as she penned the ex-Wallabies star a heartfelt letter, declaring that for her, it was love at first sight.
Seconds before Cassandra poured her heart out to Nick, she requested he look away to spare her more ’embarrassment’.
Despite Nick looking visibly uncomfortable during the moment, he gave Cassie another rose to keep her in the competition.
‘I won’t be fuelling these bulldust stories’: The rugby union star denied claims by New Idea that the pair were ‘intimate’ during the period they briefly dated
While Cassandra has been silent on responding to questions regarding the pair’s intimacy, Nick recently shut down rumours that he slept her before they were reunited on The Bachelor earlier this year.
Responding to claims by New Idea that the pair were ‘intimate’ during the period they briefly dated, the rugby union star said the allegations were ‘bulldust’.
In a furious statement, he said: ‘I won’t be fuelling these bulldust stories [about sleeping with Cassandra] that the media mob creates.’
Nick has previously confirmed that he and Cassandra, 24, enjoyed ‘a couple of dates’ before he signed on to be Australia’s sixth Bachelor.
