What you DIDN’T see on The Bachelor: Producers were forced to cut Bella Varelis’ scathing speech to Locky Gilbert after he dumped her in the season finale despite saying ‘I love you’
‘Did you let him have it any more than what we saw?’ radio host Jackie ‘O’ Henderson asked.
‘Yeah, I honestly, I went numb,’ Bella responded.
‘The thing is, right, I was walking up to him and I genuinely loved him. You don’t want to see the person that you love crying like that. That’s why I was consoling him.

‘Did I think that I was going to be the one standing at the end wiping the tears off his face? No, I thought it would have been the other way round at least.
‘But I don’t know… I did kind of give it to him a little bit.’
Host Kyle Sandilands interjected: ‘I knew something had been edited out! I was waiting for you to just put your finger in his face and say, “Eff you” What did you say?’
She explained that she’d berated Locky for having ‘Strength & Honour’ tattooed on his chest while behaving so dishonourably by leading her on.

Inked up: Locky has many tattoos, including the words ‘Strength & Honour’ on his chest
Bella replied: ‘I might have been like, “You’ve got honour tattooed on your chest, mate.” And then I kind of looked and was like, “Can I leave?”‘
‘What did he say to that?’ asked Jackie, to which Bella responded: ‘He said nothing.
‘He’s got honour tattooed on his chest. Don’t tell me you’re in love with me and then be like, “I love you, but not enough.”‘
His lips are sealed: Bella claimed Locky ‘said nothing’ after she scolded him for leading her on
During Thursday night’s gut-wrenching finale, Locky told both women he was in love with them – but then had the tricky task of sending one home.
He broke down in tears as Bella arrived to face the music, telling her he ‘fell in love’ the first day he saw her, before coming up with a rather feeble excuse to end things.
‘I know you don’t, like, sort of see where your future is at the moment. I think I need just a little bit of certainty,’ he said, as Bella looked at him in utter disbelief.
‘I just don’t know if I can see us working,’ he added, to which the brunette replied: ‘I just don’t get it. Yesterday, you told me you were in love with me.’

As Locky tried to explain himself, a furious Bella stormed off and snapped: ‘My God… Can I leave? I’m going.’
She later told producers: ‘Who does that to someone? Who tells them they’re in love with them and then… I just want to get out of here.’
After this emotional break-up, Locky composed himself then professed his love for Irena Srbinovska, telling her he ‘couldn’t wait’ to spend the rest of his life with her.
‘Irena, every time I’m with you, I feel so safe and protected. It’s kind of weird, because I’m a pretty big dude, and not many people can make me feel like that,’ he told the 31-year-old nurse.

‘But just when I’m with you, I feel so calm and comfortable, and it’s a pretty new feeling for me. I know you’re going to make a beautiful girlfriend, wife, mother, everything. You’re the whole package.’
Locky teased another blindside when he admitted to Irena that he’d had his doubts about their relationship.
‘However, my biggest fear is that you’re not going to be able to put yourself first, or tell me no. And in my partner, I want drive and ambition,’ he said.
‘And I think you’ve got that in spades,’ he added, much to Irena’s relief.
‘When I think about our future together, I’m so excited and I can’t wait to just travel the world and make all your dreams come true.

‘I love you too!’ she replied, as swelling music and a sweeping camera shot marked the dramatic end of Locky’s journey to find love.
