The Bachelor Australia 2019: 'I Was A Bit Overwhelmed': Helena Opens Up About Her Insecurities
On Thursday's episode of 'The Bachelor', Matt and Helena's date saw the pair looking at a timeline of their possible future together.
And while it seemed that the task -- which included the duo observing at what point they'd hope to be married and have children -- became a bit too much for Helena, she revealed that her reaction was actually for a whole different reason.
"I honestly didn't know what we were doing, it looked like a high school project. Were we going to be finger painting? The minute I saw it and he explained it I thought, 'this is so perfect!'" Helena explained to 10 daily.
"I thought it was quite touching," she added.
It was at this point that the blonde beauty began to realise the gravity of the situation she was in and when, she says, her insecurities and self-doubt took over.
"I just walked away at the end as I was upset because I'd been quite awkward," she said.
"I was panicking and thinking about his connection with other girls, and I was a bit overwhelmed."
"I'm not one to fall head over heels with anyone and once I started to have these feelings for Matt I started to panic when thinking about every single girl saying they have connections with him."
But being the level-headed gal she is, it didn't take long for Helena to take a moment to regroup and carry on with her romantic moonlight date with Matt.
"I think I really gave myself a pep talk, I was like 'come on you’ve got one date, don't stuff it up!' So in the second half, I got into it straight away and explained myself -- and I was really happy I did that," she said.
"It was a shame I was awkward to begin with, but it’s just that I never got used to doing it all on camera, it’s just a bit crazy!"
