1. “You don’t have to pick anyone.” Matty J on exactly what the producers tell the Bachelor.
Nick Cummins has polarised the nation after his Bachelor finale last night where he chose precisely no woman to be in a relationship with. Whilst some have expressed their disappointment saying he has wasted all of our times, others believe we shouldn’t be so critical of the Honey Badger and that he made the right decision for himself.
Matty J is in the latter camp.
The former Bachelor who won Australia’s heart with his season last year is one of the few people who can actually empathise with the position Nick was in last night.
“You can’t really just dip your toe in. You’re either all in, or you’re not, and I think for Nick to have picked one of the girls and said like, ‘Hey, let’s just see how this goes and give this a little crack,’ it would have been a lot worse,” Matty J told news.com.au.

And to be honest, he has a fair point.
He further added the immense pressure you are under due to fans wanting that fairytale ending and a “firework” connection.
“It sucks that he didn’t get to fall in love, and at the end of the day, he made the right call for himself, which is what you have to do in that situation,” he told the publication.
One question that has been floated since the finale aired last night, is whether the bachelor and bachelorettes are contractually obliged to choose someone. And Matty J has our answer…
