Elly also spoke of her post-show troubles in a chat with WHO earlier this year.
“While The Bachelorette was on TV, I was just so stressed. There was so much media involvement – it was really overwhelming. When the show was on, I avoided going out in public,” she explained.
“I’m really proactive with taking care of myself, and really self-aware, so when I know that something’s off for me, I’m like ‘I’m a happy girl, I need to fix this.’”
She said that her gym began to feel like a family, and she would go every day in order to manage her symptoms of anxiety.
Elly was the 2020 Bachelorette alongside her older sister, Becky.
Neither were particularly successful at finding love via the show, but now seem to live very happy lives.
Elly and her winner, Frazer Neate, broke up about a month after the show aired.
“I don’t even know if I’d call it a relationship,” she revealed on a podcast in April.
“I had the highest hopes, I was very naive, and I guess caught up in hoping the best for the situation.”
However, Elly has no regrets about going on the show.
“I definitely don’t regret doing it. I’ve learned so much about myself. When you’ve gone through a tough or stressful time, it helps you grow and I’m proud of how Becky and I conducted ourselves,” she told WHO.
