Tiffany Scanlon shares a sweet memory about Nikki Gogan you didn't see on The Bachelor.

Look, we don’t know about you, but we’re about a season of The Bachelor away from applying for the show just to see what it’s like.

Do the fellow contestants actually like each other?

Does anyone eat the cheese?

What is Osher’s hair like up close?

Obviously all very important questions that we will forever be wondering about (*sigh* – the entry form is long.)

A very important retrospective on all Osher’s bizarre games. Post continues after video.

Well, former Bach contestant Tiffany Scanlon and Nikki Gogan have just given us a little taste of life behind the scenes of The Bachelor.

While neither found love with Richie Strahan on season four of The Bachelor, the two have remained friends – and yesterday they gave us the ultimate gift.

~Mansion goss~

Taking to Instagram on Saturday, Tiffany shared a photo of a reunion between the pair, along with story that was never shown on TV and honestly, it’s heartwarming. 

The reality star recalled feeling insecure on the set of The Bachelor – heightened by the fact that other contestants had luggage filled with designer clothes and makeup – things she did not have.

After an early morning finish of filming and photoshoots one day, Tiff took herself to bed – admitting she had cried herself to sleep.

When she awoke, there was a plate of food waiting by her bed – a kind gesture Tiff later found out to be from co-star Nikki.

It was absolutely wonderful catching up with this sweetheart today at the @wacountrycups Ladies Luncheon ???? There aren’t too many eggs as good as @nikki_gogan (especially coming out of reality tv shows!) Today I was reminded of a story about Nikki that I’ve never shared. It was the first day in the Bachelor ‘mansion’ after 2 gruelling nights of 4am finishes. Already sleep deprived, we had a full day of photo shoots and interviews for various media outlets ahead and I quickly felt overwhelmed. Girls were comparing their designer brand clothing, perfectly applying their makeup, striking poses for the camera and feelings of insecurity and inadequacy quickly took over. I didn’t have any designer clothing, barely wore makeup, didn’t know how to style my hair, and didn’t know how to pose for photo’s (especially when the other girls were watching on). To say I felt intimidated would be an understatement. I crawled into bed and cried myself to sleep. A couple of hours later, one of the producers convinced me to come and do the group photo and when I got out of bed there was a plate of food, a bottle of water and a banana with a smiley face drawn on next to my bed. I later found out that it had been Nikki who had snuck in and left that for me because I had missed lunch. That’s Nikki for you, selfless and unassuming, always trying to lift up those around her. I am truly blessed to have crossed paths with her beautiful soul, she’s a one in a million ✨

“When I got out of bed there was a plate of food, a bottle of water and a banana with a smiley face drawn on next to my bed,” the post above read.

“That’s Nikki for you, selfless and unassuming, always trying to lift up those around her. I am truly blessed to have crossed paths with her beautiful soul, she’s a one in a million,” she continued.

Nikki responded with her own kind words: “You are true sunshine, it made my heart happy to see you and spend time with you today. I’m so proud if you.”

Tiffany dated co-star Megan Marx briefly after The Bachelor, and Nikki has since found love with Fremantle-based architect Bill Coe – but this is by far the sweetest love story of all.

In fact, we don’t even care about Osher and the cheese anymore.
