Now Alex, who was the winner of Richie’s season of The Bachelor, is revealing that from the moment she was cast for the Channel 10 reality show, she had her eyes set on Brooke, who appeared on Nick Cummins’ season of The Bachelor.

Speaking with Yahoo Lifestyle Australia, Alex shared, “Going in there, I obviously knew that I wanted to pursue her.”

“I didn’t know what her thoughts were on me going in there, but I remember when she was announced and I was due to fly out, I had this feeling of just nerves because there was something about her that made nervous in a really, really good way.”

She continues: “I think I just wanted to impress her.”

“So as you see, there’s a pretty special moment there on the ad.”

Also speaking to Yahoo, Brooke revealed the excitement and nerves was mutual, saying, “I was excited to see Alex and I think I wanted to get to know her more, I was quite curious about her.”

We can already tell we’re going to love this couple.
