The clip, released by Channel 10, shows Joe greeting the sisters during the show’s premiere in a black and gold checked shirt.
“No! It’s a small world!” he says, visibly surprised to see her.
Eagle-eyed fans have been quick to note that Joe and Elly are already following each other on Instagram.
In fact, Elly commented one of his recent posts (as shared by the So Dramatic! podcast IG account.)
“Oh what an iso crew,” she wrote on the pic, which shows a shirtless Joe posing with his housemates.
“Elly already follows him?? Pre-arranged perhaps? Or well-known man about town?” one viewer weighed in on a Facebook fan forum.
“Elly is following Joe but already was (it’s not recent) so both being from Newcastle, clearly know each other. He’s also followed by Josh from MAFS who is from here [Newcastle] too,” another added.
It’s also believed that the pair go to the same gym together, leading many to believe that the hunk will make it all the way to the finale.
In a new episode of So Dramatic! podcast, host Megan Pustetto spilled all of the details of how the new double Bachelorette formula will work.
"They both get to know all the guys, then after the first week the guys have to decide which girl they're most interest in pursuing," she explained.
"It's not an even playing field. 13 guys go with Elly and only 7 guys go with Becky.”
Only time will tell, eh?
