I will always respect her and care for her.

He said Olivia called him after filming ended and they spoke for two hours, but she told him she wasn’t ready for a relationship.

“She just wasn’t ready for what I was ready for,” Nelson admitted. “It was a timing thing. It got my heart broken. You put yourself out there and it’s hard dating in real life. She was that rock for me at one point.” Olivia also confirmed that she had “friend-zoned” Nelson and said that she was just having “fun” with him on the show.
