Bella Varelis admits she would have rejected Locky Gilbert at the finale

The Bachelor’s runner-up Bella Varelis has taken to social media to say she “dodged a bullet” when Locky Gilbert dumped her on the season Finale.

Although The Bachelor Locky Gilbert is still head over heels for winner Irena Srbinovska, it was only a month ago when he also confessed his love for runner-up Bella Varelis – only to dump her on the season finale.

But now, the 25-year-old has spoken up about being dumped by the Survivor star, admitting she “dodged a massive bullet”.

In a candid YouTube Q&A, Varelis told her fans that she would never take Gilbert back if given the opportunity.

“I’m actually really grateful Locky dumped me… and I’m just really excited for life,” she confessed.

“At the end of the day, I absolutely loved Locky and I really could see a future with him. Every relationship and every person that comes into your life is a lesson and Locky was just a big lesson for me.”

Bella went on to reveal that she would have rejected Locky at the finale because she couldn’t date somebody who was in love with two people at once.

“I think it was just the universe saying ‘you know what, this human isn’t your human and your human will come along soon.’”

When asked if she’s currently looking for a relationship, Bella said: “Guys suck. If the right person came along I would definitely be open to a relationships but I think I just want to focus on myself at the moment and kind of get back to Bella.”

Despite her disappointment in how things turned out, she did say that she was extremely happy for Locky and Irena.

“I’m happy for them both and I wish them the best but I know this just wasn’t supposed to be my happily ever after so it’ll come.”
