Speaking to Mamamia today ahead of tonight’s finale, Alex said it was the normal, everyday experiences she was most looking forward to sharing with Richie.
“I’m just so excited to … go for a drive with him, be out with other people and just being able to be open with my friends and family about the relationship and just not have to keep this big, huge secret from everybody,” she said.
Although the show ended in heartbreak for fellow contestant Nikki Gogan, Alex says the duo will always be close and have an enormous amount of respect for each other.
