There’s plenty of common ground between Bachelor franchise alumni Nick ‘The Honey Badger’ Cummins and Ali Oetjen. But could a romantic relationship soon be on the cards?

Both former reality dating-show stars appear alongside one another on the upcoming celebrity endurance reality series, SAS Australia.

And recent pictures from on set reveal that the pair appear to have forged an instant camaraderie, with the two seen together while undertaking the show’s gruelling challenges.

It’s hardly surprising that Nick, 33 and Ali, 34, have gravitated towards one another. Both have the shared experience of being in the spotlight on their respective seasons of The Bachelor and The Bachelorette, and they’ve no doubt compared notes.

But following her recent split from boyfriend, Taite Radley, whispers have emerged that the newly single wellness influencer is keen to take her relationship with The Honey Badger to the next level.

Ali and Taite had previously been together for two years after finding love on her season of the reality show. And despite recently releasing an emotional and teary Instagram video about the break-up, insiders believe that Ali is ready to move on.

“Nick is definitely Ali’s type in every way,” an insider tells New Idea. “I could totally see these two together.”

The former rugby player ticks all the boxes on paper. He is a fellow fitness lover like Ali, loves to go on adventures and travel.

Eagle-eyed fans have also noted that Ali is following Nick on Instagram – although he is yet to return the favour.

Meanwhile, the Honey Badger’s love life has remained a closely guarded secret since his controversial season of The Bachelor in 2018, when he walked away choosing neither girl.

Since then, Nick has been linked to a string of high-profile women, including accessories designer and socialite Alexandra George and chicken heiress Lucy Steggles.

However, Nick has previously denied these rumours and is yet to officially go public with a partner.
