But in a bombshell twist Brittany Hockley was dumped by Nick Cummins in Thursday night’s finale.
And taking to Instagram after the shock ending, Brittany shared her heartbreak.
‘Living it the first time was so hard, but reliving it tonight was something else,’ the brunette shared.
‘After a very long and incredible journey, I found myself standing at the end with a full heart and excited at the prospect of a happy future with Nick.
‘I believe everything happens for a reason, and by this point I truly believed I was meant to come here and meant to meet Nick.
‘From the very beginning we connected on so many levels, some you saw, and some you unfortunately didn’t. I was in disbelief and thought surely this was the reason I hadn’t met anyone in a long time.
‘But that is not the case.’
In the season finale Nick Cummins told Brittany: 'I can’t give 100 per cent of me to you'.
'My head is very cloudy,' Nick told the woman who thought she was the season winner.
'Right now I’m a little bit lost and because of that I have to say this time has come to an end and let you go.'
Following the finale, Brittany went on to say that ‘unfortunately it is not my time’.
‘I gave it my all and was always true to myself, honest and risked it for the biscuit,' she wrote.
‘I wore my heart on my sleeve and I’m proud of myself for putting myself out there.
‘Whilst this is not my happy ending, I made the most beautiful friends, and I am so grateful to have had Soph there with me at the end. She is truly my rock.
I’m leaving with a heavy heart, but I’d like to say to all the girls that I shared this adventure with, thank you for the journey, the laughs and the memories, they will last a lifetime.’
Brittany went on to thank the crew and all those who had worked on the hit reality TV show with her.
‘I saw some of your hearts break when mine did, you know who you are, thank you for treating me so well always, and always making me laugh when I needed it,’ she wrote.
‘You made this whole experience that much greater.
‘My family have been my rocks and really helped me through this. It’s been so hard to keep this to ourselves and deal with it on our own.
‘Everyone that ever supported me on this crazy rollercoaster, thank you from the bottom of my broken heart.
‘I love love and I have to believe this is just setting me on the path I’m supposed to be on.
‘You can be sure I’ll keep on searching’
We’re wishing you all the very best Britt!
