Earlier in the week, New Idea exclusively reported that following the Bachelor finale in which Nick ends up with neither Brittany Hockley or Sophie Tieman, he reaches out to Cass for a second chance.
Turning to her in his hour of need, worried about the public backlash he is set to face for his decision to walk away from his new relationship, the lovable larrikin has been plagued with guilt and begging for forgiveness, confessing that he wants to work things out.
“Nick has really struggled emotionally since the show ended,” says a friend.
“He didn’t expect things to end that way and wasn’t really prepared to have feelings for more than one person at a time.”
And while she initially had reservations in opening her heart once again to the man who dumped her on national television, after hours of soul searching Cass has decided to give him a second chance.
“She understands why he did what he did,” says a friend. “Of course it’s not an ideal way to start a new relationship, but in all honestly she believes in fate and thinks this whole thing will just make them stronger.”
