Bachelor Pad 3 winner Nick Peterson may have pulled off a historic feat by keeping the whole prize for himself — and rubbing Rachel Truehart’s face in it — but he’s not laughing all the way to the bank. At least, not yet.

Tampa-native Nick sat down with his hometown’s ABC Action News to talk candidly about his big win. When the reporter asked Nick about where he’s stashed his $250,000, Nick laughs, “I haven’t gotten it yet,” then adds, “The check’s in the mail — I hope!”

Nick also says that when he watches the ending of Bachelor Pad — in which he reveals that he chose to “keep” the quarter million, rather than share with Rachel as he had promised her — “It feels great,” adding, “Everytime I see the finale it just solidifies the fact that I made the right decision.”

We’re thinking that getting his cash-in-hand it will really help it solidify — but until then, keep checking your mailbox, Nick!
