There’s only five contestants left on The Bachelor Australia, and if there’s one who’s caused a lot of drama in the mansion, it would be Abbie Chatfield.

The 23-year-old from Queensland is definitely one of Matt Agnew’s favourites, but she’s not the most popular amongst her rivals who have questioned her motives.

Now it’s been claimed that the curly-haired reality star has her eyes on spin-off series Bachelor In Paradise, which would mean her romance with Matt wouldn’t last.

Co-star Elly Miles has been particularly concerned with Abbie’s behaviour in recent episodes and has even shared her reservations with Matt himself.

Reflecting on her decision to dish her concerns to Matt, she recently told NW: “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. She was very vocal about wanting to appear on the program.”

Channel Ten has shared a preview for tonight’s episode, which shows Abbie getting wind of the fact that someone has complained to Matt about her.

“He said that someone told him that I’m only in this for my social media profile,” Abbie tells Chelsie Mcleod at the cocktail party.

“And I was like, you know, this is really (bleep) upsetting. I think I know who said it to him. I’m not going to bother with it.”

Something tells us there’ll still be plenty of drama tonight when The Bachelor airs at 7:30pm on Channel Ten.
