And for some bizarre reason, even though he was 'married' he thought it only fair to reply to every message.
“One of my things is that I respond to everyone,” he said.
“Unless it was somebody who didn’t introduce themselves and say, ‘oh hey Mike, I really like you from the show, this is me nude.’ If they just sent the picture I was like nah, I would delete them.
“It’s like, you’ve got to introduce yourself, you’ve still got to have some manners.”
Mike went on to admit he realised he came across as "insensitive" on the reality TV show.
“I tend to be a bit of a straight shooter. That can be very helpful in some aspects of life … in love you’ve got to be a little gentler,” he said.
“I dropped the ball a lot of times and I’ve watched it back — actually I’ve watched it back probably more than once — and it’s been really helpful to see where I’ve fallen down.”
While Heidi and Mike split shortly after the show ended, Mike has found love with model Jessica Williamson.
