Abbie also warned contestants to not turn on Google Alerts for their name or wait for stories to come up in their organic news feeds, acknowledging that the ladies will read comments about themselves.
"I know you’re going to read comments, but when you do, think about what it would take for you, a rational sane person, to write something awful about someone on a Facebook page," the former Bachelor star wrote.
"Everyone will tell you this, but those people have issues within themselves and are projecting. BUT!! In saying this, it is completely fair to feel overwhelmed and hurt by what people are saying. Use the resources provided to you to support you, and don’t be afraid to ask for help."
Abbie, who was left heartbroken when Bachelor Matt Agnew chose Chelsie McLeod over her in the finale, also told the ladies that they will re-visit the intense emotions felt during feeling.
"Be prepared to go through all of the emotions you had during filming. If you loved him, it will feel like a second breakup, if you were bullied, you won’t be able to sleep after seeing certain episodes BUT! Know the recovery is much faster. The pain is as deep, but you’ve had practice getting over it between filming and airing," she wrote.
She also advised the contestants to stay off their phones and instead ask a friend to go through the onslaught of messages. Viewers, she said, will only remember one thing.
"Remember that no matter how things go, in three months everyone will forget the details, and will only remember how you handled yourself. Stay strong and don’t speak poorly about anyone in your interviews. It creates a feedback loop of negativity and could push someone over the edge," she penned.
"If any of you are struggling, DM me. I’ve been there in the absolute worst way."
Though Abbie doesn't know any of the women going on to Locky's season, she told WHO in an exclusive chat that she received many messages from those who applied for The Bachelor asking for advice for their interviews.
"I was like ‘I don’t know, I literally applied and the next day I got on, you’ve just got to talk,’" Abbie confessed, adding that she's "really keen to watch" the upcoming season.
"I’m excited to see on Locky’s season if there’s a different reaction to someone who is a similar character to me and I hope that it will change for other women down the line," she added.
"I’m really keen to watch it - I’m going to do recaps on the podcast of it and I’m so excited to have a different bunch of people to be focused on. Usually it would be airing now so we’ve had more than our fair share of being the latest Bachelor girls. I want to get away from being the Gemini girl!"
