ACA ambushes Honey Badger

IN a move usually reserved for dodgy tradies or bickering neighbours, A Current Affair has tracked down and confronted Nick Cummins on camera - and he's not happy about it.

The Honey Badger, who is in Papua New Guinea completing the Kokoda Trail, was accosted by reporter Reid Butler and a camera crew while leaving a hotel pool.

Wearing a white hotel robe, Nick appeared to be perplexed by Butler's questions about The Bachelor finale.

"Sorry to do this to you, but can we ask you a few questions about the mess you've left back home?" Butler asked.

"Sorry?" a stunned Cummins replied.

In a preview for tonight's episode of ACA, Butler explained they had tracked down Cummins in order to get an answer for The Bachelor finale which had broken "all our hearts".

"Well Nick's been able to avoid the backlash that decision has caused from the girls and the fans themselves by being here in Papua New Guinea for the past eight days," Butler said.

"But A Current Affair has been able to track the Honey Badger down."

Showing shots of Nick lying on a sun lounger and chatting in the pool with friends - you know, normal holiday activities - Butler said Nick was "still very much enjoying the bachelor lifestyle".

A teaser for the segment received a largely negative response on Twitter today:

 

 

 

 

Nick fled to Papua New Guinea last week ahead of The Bachelor finale which saw him dump both Sophie Tieman and Brittany Hockley in a surprise ending.

The rugby player hasn't commented on his shock decision apart from a prerecorded interview with The Sunday Project.

When grilled by Lisa Wilkinson as to why he had gone on The Bachelor, a flustered Nick said it was all down to his "timeline".

"So timelines you can have, you can think you know what you want, and then someone comes into your life and your view of what you thought you wanted gets absolutely blown out the window," Nick said.

"Why would I go in and start something that has a high potential of three months down the track breaking her heart, you know? I'd rather make a very hard decision then at that point to save a big scar on the heart later."
