The Bachelor’s Nick ‘The Honey Badger’ Cummins looks downcast as he departs New Caledonia

It’s been confirmed he’s no longer dating The Bachelor winner.

And Nick Cummins’ looked like he had a lot on his mind while leaving New Caledonia in June after filming the show’s finale. 

The former Wallaby looked downcast before boarding a flight bound for Australia accompanied by a Bachelor producer.

Nick – who chose either Brittany Hockley or Sophie Tieman in the finale – had a rather serious expression on his face while making his way through the airport.

He looked noticeably tense, could barely manage a smile and gazed mournfully towards the ground before as he approached the check-in desk.

Interestingly, he was pictured carrying a ukulele inside a black case, which perhaps suggests a musical element to the finale episode.

It is widely believed that radiographer Brittany steals Nick’s heart and property valuer Sophie places runner up.

However, Daily Mail Australia confirmed earlier this month that the rugby star is no longer dating the show’s winner.

‘The Honey Badger’s relationship is already over. This is obviously not what we wanted,’ a production source said.

In a later development, Woman’s Day claimed on Monday that Nick’s relationship with Brittany fell apart soon after the cameras stopped rolling.

An insider alleged that Nick was unconcerned about keeping up appearances for publicity purposes and was keen to move on with his life.

‘Things fell apart soon after the series ended and he refused to “fake it” to appease the network [Channel Ten],’ an on-set source told the magazine.

They further claimed that Nick ‘never got over his ex’, Norwegian artist Martine Strøm Thomassen, which was a ‘massive issue’ for Brittany.

Daily Mail Australia has contacted Network Ten and Nick’s manager for comment.

The Bachelor continues Wednesday at 7:30pm on Network Ten
