Nick ‘Honey Badger’ Cummins has described his time on Ten’s The Bachelor as “soul destroying” while speaking about the experience on the radio this morning.
Cummins was on Hit105’s Stav, Abby & Matt show to promote the release of his new book, ‘The Honey Badger’s Guide To Life‘ which briefly touches on the sports star’s time in the mansion.
Speaking on the chapter titled ‘The Badger vs. The Bachelor’ and the show itself, Cummins said: “It shows … we do have two worlds that we live in.
“I’ve got to be careful here … we’re forced to be something where we’re not fully ourselves.
“Even though you do your best, you kick and scream to do that. [It was] me towing the line, which is never something you want to do — you want to be 100 per cent honest.”
“I’m a pretty outgoing, rip into it, have a crack (person). But then you’ve got The Bachelor and this world, where sometimes you’ve got to alter your normal behaviours to fit into a genre.
“That can be soul-destroying. (The chapter) is a little indication of what it does to you, and how you can stop it from happening.”
Touching on the nationwide anger Cummins received having refused to choose a final winner in the show, he said: “Sometimes you’ve got to stand for something or you’ll fall for anything.”
When detailing the experience book, Cummins admitted he now understands the world “deeper and better”.
He wrote: “After seeing how this crazy TV world all comes together and how it presents as it wants … after being basted and roasted, my understanding of that world is deeper and better than if I had sat on the sidelines and not got involved.
“I don’t have any regrets. I’ve hopefully come to raise the vibrations of the earth a bit, especially for blokes out there, and if I’ve done that, I’m happy.”
