It comes after reports emerged that the sports star may have been forced to re-film certain scenes on the Channel Ten reality show for not being affectionate enough.
At a previous paddle boarding date, Nick reportedly failed to impress when he didn’t kiss his date, despite the two of them getting along well.
‘It looked as if the producers wanted him to turn on the fireworks and passionately kiss the girl but he didn’t,’ a source told Sydney Morning Herald’s The Goss on Sunday.
‘So they kept making him go in and out of the water where the rose was placed in a canister in the hopes that he might have a better reaction.’
