After much anticipation, Matt pulled the 24-year-old aside and asked if she'd not only accept the first rose but accompany him to his home in Melbourne for a romantic date.
"I am really enjoying getting to know you and I want that to continue because I feel like there could be something special here," the devilishly handsome Bachie told the bubbly blonde. "You give me butterflies and at the same time, you make me feel very relaxed. I feel like we've known each other for a long time. It would be my pleasure if you take the golden ticket and accept this rose."
"I'm speechless," Elly grinned. "I am so happy that I get to know him a little bit better away from everyone. I am so excited. I can't wait to get to see a bit of Victoria and see where you are from."
Described by her friends as a "classic Aussie girl and a bit of a bogan", Elly says she's ready to settle down but admits "The last person I opened up to broke my heart. I'm scared to be in the situation again where I don't feel good enough for someone."
Her ideal date?
"I find sit-down dinners can put a lot of pressure on you to have conversation flow. Hence why a fun activity is always a good option and a good chance to have a bit of banter! E.g. fishing, going to the beach etc.
"If I let my imagination run wild, a dream date for me would be a day full of outdoor activities like fishing (and actually catching heaps of fish) and mud crabbing then heading off to a beach where we'd cook up our catch in a camp oven. Then spend the evening around the fire, listening to music."
