She knew Nick. From before.
If anything, this subplot has become more and more confusing as the show has gone on. How well did Cass know the former professional rugby player? Were they acquaintances, or exes? Had they flirted, or dated? Also – WHY DID CASS SEEMINGLY GO ON A FAMILY HOLIDAY WITH HONEY BADGER.
Earlier this season, when Nick’s family arrived to meet the contestants, it emerged that Cass already knew Nick’s brother. They spent time together, she said, in Queensland, which sounds like a very different place to where they both live – in Manly. People don’t go to other states with people they don’t know well. That’s a fact.
On screen, she’s disclosed they actually went on a “coupla dates” where they got to know each other “pretty well” – a story which has been corroborated by Mr Badger.
But according to fellow contestant Brittany Hockley, Cass intentionally misled the other women about her history with Nick.
Speaking to WHO Magazine, the 30-year-old said “I feel hurt because Cass has always adamantly told me that nothing has happened between them.”
“She lied to me the whole time.”
