Interestingly, Elly isn't the only former contestant who has a theory about Abbie overstaying her welcome. Earlier this month, eliminated Bachie star Kristen Czyszek told Yahoo that although she hasn't made herself a favourite in her fellow contestants' eyes, Matt is yet to see the REAL Abbie.
“Abbie has such a big personality and we all have different ways of coping in [The Bachelor] environment, she copes with a lot of things through laughs and jokes."
"I think it's really hard to understand people's comments when he (Matt) hasn't seen that side and only experienced wonderful moments with her (Abbie)," Kristen revealed. "Matt knows what he wants and so he's just pursuing what he wants, that's why she's still there."
