The 25-year-old gave her Instagram followers an opportunity to ask their questions in the comments of a post she put up on Sunday that read: Ask Alex.
One fan asked is she found it hard receiving hate after the Bachelor finale, accusing the show’s producers of editing the series to make it seem “as if Nikki was the leading lady”.
The mum-of-one replied that while she understood people had become “invested” in the show and its cast, she couldn’t relate to viewers wanting to bring down someone else’s “happiness”.
Happy Sunday gorgeous people!! I receive messages every single day asking various different questions from Love and relationships, being a young Mumma, fashion and style to health and wellbeing. So I thought I’d give you all the opportunity to ask me a question below and I’ll do my best to answer each of you! Silly questions will be deleted straight away. Let’s not spoil the fun team ✌????️ Now, fire away you awesome humans! ✨????
“It was disappointing to see so much negativity as I myself couldn’t imagine ever being like that to another person, especially someone who I do not know,” Alex wrote.
“People become very invested with the show and I understand that viewers felt Nikki’s heartbreak and empathised with her.”
“Half of Australia was heart broken also! And that’s ok. However, it’s much nice to be happy for others if they are happy rather than putting negativity on that happiness.”
Alex said that what she didn’t struggle with, however, was watching the series on TV and seeing Richie kiss other women.
