Bella revealed she's single and wouldn't consider taking Locky back after he chose Irena Srbinovska in the Bachelor finale.

"I'm actually really grateful Locky dumped me... and I'm just really excited for life. At the end of the day, I absolutely loved Locky, and I really could see a future with him, she said.

"Every relationship and every person that comes into your life is a lesson, and Locky was just a big lesson for me."

She added that she wants to focus on herself at the moment because "guys suck".

Another interesting bombshell Bella revealed was that even if Locky had chosen her, she would have rejected him because she couldn't be with someone who was in love with two women.

The fact Locky told both Irena and Bella that he loved them was a huge talking point when the finale aired with many fans slamming the former Survivor star.

When asked whether she'd consider dating Locky again if he and Irena should breakup in the future, she said absolutely not.

"I'm happy for them both and I wish them the best, but I know this just wasn't supposed to be my happily every after," she said.

The comments on the YouTube video proved Bella has a lot of fans with one viewer saying, "[You] deserve tremendously better than Locky."

Another wrote, "You were always my favourite on the bachelor. You are so kind, genuine and sweet. I wish you nothing but the best, you deserve it."
