The Bachelor’s Bella Varelis is finally able to speak freely and own her truth now the show is over – and Locky Gilbert isn’t coming across great.

Chatting on Laura Byrne and Brittany Hockley’s Life Uncut podcast this week, the 26-year-old revealed that Locky teased he was going to propose to her during the finale – which obviously led her to believe she was going to win.

Before then, er, dumping her instead.

She also confirmed that Locky did indeed tell her he was ‘in love’ with her several times, despite him now claiming that he only ever told Bella he was ‘falling in love’ with her.

Here’s what Locky told Bella off-camera, mostly over text:

‘[Locky] did actually say “I love you” – straight up. And I said it too. During lockdown we were talking about engagement rings and he asked, “What would you do if I proposed to you at the end?” I think the one that really got me was when he said to me, “I can’t wait to make you happy for the rest of your life”. You don’t say that to someone unless you really want that. I remember saying to my mum, “I think I’ve found the person who actually wants to be with me”.’

Apparently Locky told her “I can’t wait to make you happy for the rest of your life” 
Here’s what happened between them during lockdown:

‘Once we all got home [following the coronavirus shutdown], there was about two days before a producer called me. It was a Monday morning and I remember it so vividly. They said you’d have one FaceTime [with Locky] a week, two days where you can text each other freely with unlimited messages and one voice call … our first chat was like a two minute call, and then we had a FaceTime for five hours. The schedule went out the window and we were talking every day. He actually said to me, “I want to talk to you as much as I can. Don’t worry about only calling me on Tuesdays, or whatever”. I kept this from producers for the first few weeks because I didn’t want to get Locky into trouble … I didn’t tell the girls because I didn’t want to rub it in … He told me I was the only one he was talking to every day. Bec [Cvilikas, co-star] has since said that Locky also told her she was the only one he was talking to everyday.’

And here’s what happened after filming the finale in July:

‘I sent him a message, I haven’t told anyone that. I did send him a message after just to be like, I mean, it was like two days after, I was devastated, I was shattered, I was upset, I was angry. It was a pretty angry text, to be honest. The first part was like I feel like I’ve lost my best friend not just my boyfriend. It was a relationship for me.’

Seriously, you won’t regret it.

  1. Louisa and Mere Male,
    Absolutely spot on comments. I’m glad I’m not the only one who is sick and tired of Bella continuously ranting and raving doing, ‘tell alls’ just to get her mugshot out there to increase her profile.
    She sounds bitter and twisted and really needs help. She’s way too invested in Locky and Irena.
    Time to see a shrink Bella. You’ll feel better and be able to move on.

    Deb’s,
    Mere Male may not know these people personally,
    but, neitherr do you. Everyone who watched the bachelor, saw Bella change from a nice girl to an absolute BIT#H! Mere Male isn’t being angry and bitter. He, like many more are saying what he feels. He’s entitled to his opinion. You want to read ‘angry and bitter’ comments? Read some of the other comments addressed to Bella saying, ‘she’s a f#@ing blah blah blah’. Anyway, why are you sticking up for someone YOU don’t know? Perhaps you are Bella incognito pretending to be ‘Debs’. Go play with your dolls. You are as immature as Bella the drama queen and master manipulator.

  2. Is it that out of the realm of possibilities that he would fall in love with 2 women after spending equally as much time with both but when it came down to who he would actually commit to, he saw a more solid future with someone who envisaged the same kind of things that he did on the same kind of timeline ie kids etc?
    I honestly can’t believe that so many people have been shocked by this. It is The Bachelor. None of this is new. It’s about 20 women all vying for the adoration of one man they’ve only just met. The runner up always gets hurt. It sucks. But when you are second best inside or outside of reality tv, either way it hurts. Being on tv just compounds it because a whole bunch of people somehow feel emotionally invested in the outcome, when it isn’t about them at all.

  3. This girl is obsessed and overly dramatic. She needs to move the fuck on. All these cheap shots and ‘after the fact’ tell alls, are just a deliberate attempt by Bella to stir shit, hoping Locky & Irena will breakup. News flash for Bella – girls like Irena are emotionally intelligent enough to see through the bullshit and stand by her man.

    1. Wow – ‘mere’ sums you up perfectly! Nasty… don’t read this crap gossip if you’re going to get so angry & bitter… it’s not like you know these people

  4. Here’s how it is says, ( Nice ID name by the way)
    Your comment is neither here or there. It makes no difference what he felt for Bella. He felt a lot of things for a lot of the contestants including Liz, and Bec. So what? He was trying to figure things out.
    HE ACTUALLY PICKED IRENA! Bella is probably on these post putting forward her 2 cents worth and she should just get a life – along with anyone else who don’t approve of the end result. This is Lockys choice, not anyone else’s. He is HAPPY and so is Irena. They look HAPPY in every picture online.
    Everyone including Bella needs to MOVE ON! the show is over. . . THE WINNER IS . . . . IRENA!

  5. I feel like Locky was going to choose Bella. At literally at the last minute changed his mind. I think he overthought this. He even mentioned in the finale episode that his “gut” says Bella. And you always trust you gut. Love doesn’t have to be logical or make sense. You can have the whole world working against you. But as long as it’s “us” against the world nothing matters because you’ve got each other. And that is enough. That will always be enough and so much more. Trust me.

  6. By the way, Bella criticised Irena for saying Locky called her and said this and that. So why is Bella doing the same thing. Bella is saying Locky called her and said this and that. A bit hypocritical if you ask me.

  7. It’s time Bella moved on and leaves Locky and Irena to their new found love.
    All this back-stabbing Bella is doing is just very cruel.
