Fans of The Bachelor were left scratching their heads last night when Matt snubbed and later eliminated Elly for expressing concerns about Abbie intentions. At this point in time, Monique Morley, Sogand Mohtat and Matt's very own best friend, Kate, have all doubted Abbie's motives, however, annoyingly, he refuses to listen.
While it's starting to piss the wider population off— Twitter is lit with angry memes right now— Elly has put her finger on why Matt is ignoring everyone... according to the affable nurse, he's letting their sexual chemistry cloud his judgement.
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."
