In classic Bachie fashion, the pair go one a very on-brand date: A chopper ride.
We were introduced to Abbie before this season of The Bachelor hit our screens. The property analyst became the bud of a very awkward joke thanks to her astrological quip. The conversation went something like this:
Abbie: Lovely to meet you. What do you do?
Matt: I'm an astrophysicist
Abbie: OK! I'm a Gemini.
Matt: I'm a Leo
While she became a viral meme as a result of the blunder, Matt later cleared the air, revealing she was actually being sarcastic... mmm, sure!
Before they had the chance to go on a first date, Abbie and Matt infamously shared a kiss behind the other girls' back during a steamy cocktail party. Her decision to smooch him struck a nerve with many of the other ladies vying for Matt's heart, instantly making her one of the least popular contestants among the other girls.
After making it abundantly clear she was only in the mansion to form a connection with the 32-year-old, Matt and Abbie went on their first single date where they squashed a bucket of fruit with their feet. Yeah, it was really weird.
"The last few times we’ve spent together have been intensely physical I guess," Matt said at the time. "I’m taking her on a single date so we can explore what this is."
Their sexual chemistry reached a fever pitch during her final single date of the season. The loved up pair role played moving into a new house together, however they spent most of their time making out on a bed! At one point, Abbie even said, "hopefully he just wants to shag." Alas, their date wasn't all fun and games.
Things took an unexpected turn when Matt revealed that Elly had questioned her motives for being on the show.
"As always, Abbie and I have a massive sexual spark, however I know I need to slow things down," he said, before explaining that Elly had accused her of joining the series to build her social profile.
Jetting off to Abbie's hometown of Brisbane during their final date, sparks were flying between the pair as she not only introduced the hunky scientist to her family but (of course) enjoyed a few steamy romps along the way!
Dressed in a high cut leopard print bikini, Matt and Abbie took a dip in the pool where she candidly admitted: "Ideally, my top would be off right now."
As they made out in the pool, Matt confessed, "
Although she was a favourite in Matt's eyes from the get-go, Abbie was at the centre of every scandal this season. Solidifying her role as this season's resident villain, Abbie made a few enemies when she not only kissed Matt at the cocktail party but dobbed her co-star Monique Morley in for calling Matt a "dog c**t" and a "disrespectful pig" behind his back.
After Abbie ratted on Monique, admitting she just "couldn't bear keeping a secret from Matt", the whole scandal blew up in her face.
"Woah... I would never, ever say that,” Monique told Matt at the time. "I am genuinely shocked because every time I talk about him to the girls it’s in a positive manner. It’s obviously something the other girls have said or made up to get me out of the house. I don’t speak that way at all."

"The dynamic of this is not a fair situation," an angry Matt told Monique at the time. "In an ideal world, I wouldn’t be dating this many people at once. I’m trying to understand why someone would say this. She denies saying these things. Maybe she didn’t say these things, at the moment it’s one word against another."
