Nick “Honey Badger” Cummins (and his glorious mustache) is officially our 2018 Bachelor.
In case you missed it, Honey Badger is a former rugby union player with a larrikin sense of humour. He gave himself the nickname Honey Badger after he saw a honey badger fight off a lion in a wildlife documentary.
The 30-year-old is currently living in a mansion in the semi-rural NSW suburb of Glenorie, going on day trips to jump out of planes and sit on romantic-looking couches with his bachelorettes.
While most people know Honey Badger as a laid back bloke with a whole bunch of classic one-liners, his life hasn’t always been easy.
He grew up as one of eight siblings raised by their single dad, Mark Cummins, in Logan City, just south of Brisbane.
Just wanted to say a big thanks to Tourism @WesternAustralia and everyone else behind the scenes who made this bucket list trip to the Kimberley with my old man and brothers an experience we will never forget. It was an awesome adventure! The full segment from ‘Sunday Night’ is now in the YouTube link in my bio.
When they were only little, two of Honey Badger’s younger siblings, Elizabeth and Joe, were diagnosed with cystic fibrosis.
Despite the struggles of his early life, Cummins always dreamt of one day playing rugby union for the Wallabies.
In 2005, he moved to Sydney and began playing for the Randwick rugby club. From there Honey Badger’s star continued to rise as he was drafted onto the Western Force. Then in 2012, he was invited to play for the Wallabies.
