“Nasty Naz” turns … nice? Yup, you heard it here first, Iranian-born Nazanin Khanjan tells Woman’s Day her meddling days are over.

“After the way I’d been acting, I was really worried he might send me home,” says the busty babe of The Bachelor New Zealand. “But at the same time, I knew deep down that I was telling the truth and that I was trying to do the right thing, so I’m glad he was able to look past all of that.”

Indeed, Naz’s scheming, bitching and backstabbing earned her no friends in the mansion, nor did they sit right with the star of the show, Jordan Mauger. But the 25-year-old landscaper insists she’s had a change of heart.

Naz and Jordan clearly have a connection - but will it be enough?

“I was just trying to
look out for Jordan, but he was hinting to me that he could look after himself.”

Adding, “I should have trusted him to make the right decision instead of getting so involved.”

Whatever she is – or isn’t – doing seems to be working. Last week, after a romantic one-on-one date in the Bay of Islands Naz secured that all-important red rose ahead of the cocktail party, and appeared to be forming a strong connection with the handsome Bachelor.

“He’s 
the kind of guy that could fit into my family,” she smiles. “If I do get through to home visits, I’m feeling pretty confident about taking him home.”
