It was only a month ago that Nikki Gogan took that fateful step out of a limousine in Bali, only to be told by Richie that she wasn’t the one he loved. Instead, he chose Alex Nation, a 25-year-old mum of one from Melbourne.
While Nikki and Alex appeared close on the show, supporting each other despite the fact that they were the obvious favourites, we all assumed that having your heart broken on national television would take its toll. Surely they couldn’t maintain a friendship after the show – with Alex pursuing a relationship with a man Nikki told Australia she loved.
But alas, our Instagram stalking skills suggest there’s no bad blood between the two.
On Monday, Alex uploaded a photo of herself with her five-year-old son Elijah, with the caption: "@richie_strahan you aren't the only cutie that can hand out a rose."
I have to admit, I would definitely accept a rose from Elijah.
"I melt," commented Nikki, with a fitting love-heart-eyes emoji.
It's interesting that Nikki chose to comment on a picture that clearly referenced Richie and the show, but hey, she's a bloody classy lady.
