Australian audiences may be loving the latest season of 'The Bachelor,' but it looks like the ladies of this season weren't exactly swooning over the man of the hour. Rugby icon Nick "Honey Badger" Cummins is the star of the 2018 season and viewers can't get enough of his reality TV antics and...giant neck?
Reports from NW Magazine shared that producers on the show had to beg the female contestants not to walk-off after the first night. "They told the girls not to make any rash decisions – to give him a go, and decide after getting to know him properly," the publication wrote.
Apparently, the women were so uninterested in The Honey Badger that the show's producers dangled the promise of being on 'Bachelor in Paradise' in order to get them to stay on.
Poor Honey Badger, the ladies on the show may need incentive to stay, but audiences are tuning in just for you.
