Lucinda came out of MAFS as one of the most popular contestants, and Tim said that he believed the profile boost changed her.

“The cameras do that to people”, he says. “Lucinda may have buckled under the pressure with so many people wanting a piece of her.”

He added that he “didn’t walk away easily” but felt like “eight chances was enough”.

Timothy wanted to avoid the public eye

Tiothym stressed that he wasn’t jealous of Lucinda’s popularity, but added that he didn’t want to be a “pawn” in the sense of the constant media attention surrounding him and his ex-TV wife.

“Hearing bits and pieces that were untrue, stuff that was twisted, that has been disappointing,” he said.

“I think some people, and I am not just saying Lucinda, but some people have let this spot of notoriety go to their head and I didn’t want to go down that path. The show is over, I had a good time but I really want to go back to my normal life and be me again without the lens of that TV show.

“People have become their characters and that is a dangerous path to go down. You can lose yourself.”

Timothy made it clear that his friendship with Lucinda was over

Timothy cryptically implied the reason why he and Lucinda are no longer closer.

“The fact of the matter is that if you have a problem with me or if you find yourself talking about me in a way you know I wouldn’t appreciate then that is not a good friend,” he said.

Adding: “I don’t want to be a bad guy. I don’t want to slag anyone but we are both now moving in different circles with different priorities.”
