Scanlon famously found love thanks to the show – with fellow contestant Megan Marx, but says their fickle relationship with the media caused a “meltdown”. The blogger told Fairfax Media she hopes Alex heeds her warning to be cautious before going public with her new relationship.
"My main advice to Alex would be to keep her private life private while she navigates a new relationship, whether that be with a man or a woman," she said.
Nation, who is yet to confirm New Idea's reports that she is in a relationship with a Frankston women's football teammate Maegan Luxa, seems to be taking that route.
The 26-year-old hasn't released a statement since her supposed relationship status with the 31-year-old chef and landscaper from Melbourne was reported.
However, her latest Instagram post, uploaded on Wednesday, reads "All you need is love" - which could be a subtle way of confirming the news to her followers.
