Matt has opened up about his parents' concerns for him and his Bachelor journey in the past.
"My parents especially had their concerns," he told a local publication in July.
"They were worried about how it might impact my career and how I'd go with suddenly being this very public person."
While Matt and Chelsie have been living in a bubble of love since the show ended, runner up Abbie has found it difficult to deal with the fallout.
Last week, Channel 10 forced an already devastated Abbie Chatfield into a confrontation with Matt Agnew and Chelsie McLeod when the network planned for their respective interviews to be filmed quite literally metres away from each other. With one clear glass window separating Abbie from her ex-boyfriend and the woman he chose over her, the 23-year-old went into a state of panic when she looked over her shoulder and saw the loved up couple holding hands while being interviewed by Nova 9.69's Fitzy and Wippa.
"I don't want to weird you out right now but they are in that studio over there," said Smallzy who was interviewing Abbie at the time.
“Holy f**k… That's alright," she replied.
Although Wippa gave her the option to leave the studio, a stoic Abbie bravely soldiered on, later revealing watching Matt and Chelsie hold hands was "the most horrible thing" she'd ever experienced.
