Seeing as every scandal this season was centred around the property analyst— meaning she's guaranteed an insane amount of air time— Elly also reckons Abbie applied the for series in an attempt to boost her notoriety.
"At the time there were comments being made about going on Bachelor In Paradise and Abbie seemed keen. So I questioned whether she was here for the right reasons if she was already thinking about life without Matt on a different TV show," the fan favourite recently dished to a local publication. "She was very vocal about wanting to appear on the program."
Interestingly, Elly isn't the only contestant who has a theory about Abbie overstaying her welcome. Last week, eliminated Bachie star Kristen Czyszek told Yahoo, that although she hasn't made herself a favourite in her fellow contestants' eyes, Matt is yet to see her true colours.
"I think it's really hard to understand people's comments when he (Matt) hasn't seen that side and only experienced wonderful moments with her (Abbie)," Kristen revealed. "Matt knows what he wants and so he's just pursuing what he wants, that's why she's still there."
“Abbie has such a big personality and we all have different ways of coping in [The Bachelor] environment, she copes with a lot of things through laughs and jokes."
Following last night's emotionally charged episode Elly took a thinly veiled swipe at Matt when she revealed she didn't have much in common with the hunky scientist.
“I like bush blokes. I probably would have liked Nick (Cummins),” she told the Daily Telegraph after being booted off the series.“I love a blokey bloke.”
To be fair, The Honey Badger is right up Elly's alley.
