Bachelor in Paradise star Brittany Hockley reveals the TRUTH behind the sunflowers that had fans convinced she’s still dating Timm Hanly
Bachelor In Paradise star Brittany Hockley has finally addressed the mysterious sunflowers that lead fans to believe she could still be with Timm Hanly.
‘I didn’t even realise! I hadn’t known they were his thing. It wasn’t until I put the story up and my inbox started flooding with messages,’ she explained.
Clue? Bachelor In Paradise star Brittany Hockley has finally addressed the mysterious sunflowers that lead fans to believe she could still be with Timm Hanly
‘I’d invited my friends around to watch [the premiere] and they bought them for me – I think as a joke, they assumed I knew the meaning!’
Brittany’s romance with the tattooed larrkin was heavily promoted ahead of this season’s premiere of Bachelor In Paradise – with many believing they are a real life couple.
Brittany shared a photo of the flowers – but conveniently didn’t mention who they were from at the time.
Oblivious: Speaking to Now To Love on Tuesday, Brittany explained that she didn’t understand the reference to Timm, as she hadn’t watched his season of The Bachelorette
‘What a night. With everything happening in the world right now, was nice to forget for a hot second and just have a good old belly laugh. Lucky to have such great people in my life,’ she captioned alongside a love heart.
Last year it was revealed sunflowers were Timm’s favourite flowers – after he famously gifted Angie Kent an enormous bouquet when he arrived at the Bachelor mansion.
The 27-year-old also has the bloom tattooed on his hand.
Hmm: Brittany shared a photo of the flowers – but conveniently didn’t mention who they were from at the time
Meaning: The sunflowers are a reference to the first episode of the season, when Timm presented Angie with a bunch of the yellow flowers (pictured)
Speaking to The Kyle and Jackie O Show on Tuesday, Brittany shared a less-than-flattering account of Timm’s behaviour after the pair returned to Australia from Fiji.
‘I didn’t expect it to end like this. I thought I was going to leave with this crazy guy and try a relationship in the outside world. But that just did not translate,’ Brittany explained.
‘It was really strange. The person that Timm was on the show was not the same person in the outside world. He was just not ready for a relationship,’ she added.
Brittany explained that she had spent about five days with Timm in Australia before she realised the tattooed larrikin wasn’t her Prince Charming.
Disappointed: Brittany said that after leaving the show with Timm (right), he ‘was not the same person in the outside world’
