Bachelor Australia star has walked out on Matt Agnew, just as the show’s contestants have been whittled down to the final few.

Helena Sauzier is reported to have made the shock decision to quit during hometown visits, just days after she was visibly overwhelmed when Matt pressed her about a 10-year plan.

However, while the 25-year-old appeared to be adamant about her choice to leave at the time, Helena ultimately back-pedalled and returned to Matt, according to New Idea.

Helena’s shock move

Helena’s hesitation reportedly came from Matt’s apparent lack of interest towards her when compared to other contestants.

“She felt, judging by the way Matt was treating her, that he wasn’t going to pick her in the end—he kept getting getting simple things wrong and she ended up having a meltdown at home visits,” a source said.

“She told producers she was staying in Perth because she didn’t see any point in coming back to Sydney... and she gave Matt a letter to explain her decision.”

However, after reported ‘begging’ by the crew, Helena is believed to have been persuaded by to stay on the show.

While the pair’s chemistry was evident for parts of the series, their different life stages became evident during a single date organised by the Bachelor all-stars.

The idea was crafted by Matt and involved the couple envisioning where their relationship would be in ten years time.

However, perhaps due to the limited time they had spent in each other’s company, Helena went through an on-air back pedal and had to temporarily exit the date.

“It's a little bit scary to be honest. It's a lot to commit to one person and be like this is it we are doing this,” she said at the time.
