An emotional rose ceremony saw The Bachelor‘s Nina sent home last night. But the outspoken brunette has an important message for women who feel ostracised or singled out because of their weight.
“I’m quite happy that I’m not a size 8, and I’m very proud in the size that I am,” Nina told News.com.au.
“I think it’s a really positive influence for girls out there who look at the show and think that everyone has to be super skinny to be on there and I feel like I’ve been that model for the real girls out there who want to go on something like this,” she continued.
It's not the first time Nina has felt the need to defend her body and eating habits either, with intruder Rachel previously insisting that Sam would only be interested in a women with a passion for fitness.
Rachel asked her fellow bachelorettes specifically, "Has he mentioned any quality he's looking for in a partner? What about someone who is passionate about health and fitness like him?"
Nina was quick to answer that he'd made it clear during the group dates that he was very interested in women who looked after themselves.
