Locky Gilbert declared his love for both Irena Srbinovska and Bella Varelis in the Bachelor grand finale, on Thursday.
And the winning lady, Irena, 31, revealed exactly how she coped with watching her man tell another woman that he was also in love with her.
Speaking to Channel Ten’s The Project on Friday, she said it was ‘not really’ difficult to watch.

The brunette beauty explained: ‘Locky and I have spoken about the finale and he gave me a good run down of what happened.
‘I had so much time to process everything by now,’ she said.
‘Watching last night, I was so focused on us and watching him get emotional and be so open-hearted and vulnerable made me love him more.’

Elsewhere in the interview, co-panellist Chris Bath grilled the former Survivor star: ‘Locky, what is harder? Doing a challenge after 20 days of little food or breaking a girl’s heart dumping her on TV hours after telling her you love her?’
He responded: ‘That was one of the hardest things I had to do. I will do a challenge for four day straights if it means I did haven’t to break someone’s heart.
‘As you saw on TV, my emotions were real. It sucked. You never want to be, have that feeling for someone and then have to break their heart,’ he added.

Bella was left shell-shocked during Thursday’s Bachelor finale when Locky, 31, told both her and love rival Irena he loved them – only to dump her.
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.’
Instead, Locky chose to pursue a relationship with nurse Irena.
He told her: ‘When I think about our future together, I’m, like, so excited and, like, I can’t wait to just travel the world and, like, make all your dreams come true.’
‘Irena, I’m so in love with you. And I can’t wait to spend the rest of my life with you.’
Happy ending! In the end, Locky chose to pursue a relationship with Irena
