Matt's friend Kate is also a big Chelsie fan.
Telling him she saw zero red flags during her interaction with engineer Chelsie, Kate gave Matt his advice:
Though tonight was our first time meeting Jason, and we didn't get to see any of Matt Agnew's family members make an appearance on The Bachelor, we've gotten to know his BFF Kate over the last few months.
“Kate is one of my best mates," Matt told us on the show. "We have known each other for over 20 years, we have shared a load of memories together and I am delighted to be part of her groom’s party next year. Kate knows me. She knows my life in Melbourne."
We were first introduced to the astrophysicist's childhood friend during one of the early group dates. The blonde beauty was brought into the mansion as the 32-year-old's wing woman and was tasked with deciphering who she thought Matt had the best connection with.
“I am really excited for her to meet and get to know the girls. I trust her explicitly. I brought Kate along to have a friend there, a wing woman because at this point I feel like I have some real strong connections with a lot of the girls," Matt said before he introduced her to all the ladies vying for his affection.
“Abbie seems lovely but she said in one sentence that marriage isn't necessarily the be-all and end all for her, and then in another part of the conversation was that she'd be ready in five years," she told Matt during their debrief. "don’t think she is here for the same reasons as you. I think she is saying what you want to hear.”
Matt was understandably shook.
But it wasn't enough to get Abbie— who's been at the centre of basically every drama we've seen so far this season— sent home.
