Fans of the Bachelor are already speculating that Nick ‘The Honey Badger’ Cummins will propose to his ladylove after he flashed a dazzling ring on the first episode.
Now, an insider has exclusively revealed to Daily Mail Australia that the engagement ring Nick is tipped to use to propose to his leading lady is worth more than $20,000.
In the opening introduction teasing the season ahead, the former rugby union star can be seen opening a jewellery box from Larsen Jewellers, the same company who sponsored Matty J Johnson’s promise ring for Laura Byrne.

In the brief clip, Nick reveals a peach-toned gem set in between two smaller diamonds and says in the voice over: ‘I see a future that is just so beautiful.’
As the underwear model admired the dazzling ring, viewers took to Twitter to guess whether he would get down on bended knee at the end of his season.
‘Is that an engagement ring?’ One excited fan questioned.
They continued: ‘I am going to have some hashtag THOUGHTS if the second Bachie season ends in a row ends in a proposal. #TheBachelorAU,’ referring to Sam Cochrane’s proposal to Tara Pavolvic.
However, another fan of the show found Nick’s ring unappealing, tweeting: ‘That ring is ugly as f*** #TheBachelor.’

He recently told OK! Magazine that he was open to the idea of proposing to the woman he falls in love with at the end of the season.
‘For me, it’s definitely possible! Diamonds aren’t included, because I think it’s a business venture and good marketing…. [I’d] probably propose with a burger ring,’ said.
