“Most of the girls knew Elly had a history with Matt and it caused a lot of tension in the house,” the insider dished.
After the contestants caught on, the source claimed they confronted the 24-year-old about her fling with the Matt, however, she was adamant the rumours weren't true.
“They eventually confronted her about it, and she denied the rumours, but everyone knew it had happened and started to despise her for having an unfair advantage. The whole thing really upset her.”
From the moment Matt and Elly locked eyes, it was clear there was already a spark. Not only did she win him over on the first night while toasting marshmallows by a fire, but in a Bachie first, she wasgifted the Golden Ticket— an invitation back to Matt's hometown for a single date.
"I don't knowhow Matt's going to take this,but I'm hoping he sees thatI just...I want what's best for himand I just want himto make the right decision," she explained in a piece to camera before stealing Matt away. "He needs to finally see Abbie for who she really is."
"What I really, like,need you to knowis that I really like youand I'm here 110% for you and, like,you're a priority for me. I don't like talking ill about people but I just don't think Abbie is taking this thing very seriously... I don't know if she has the purest intentions."
"It's interesting to hear that Ellythinks thatAbbie's gotthe wrong motivationsfor being herebecause Elly's not the firstto suggest that," Matt pondered in a piece to camera, still not entirely convinced.
"I do appreciate you telling me... I imagine it is,it can be uncomfortable because these peopleyou're living with, I get that."
Abbie and Elly had some stern words last night
After the frienemies had it out with each other, Matt told Fitzy and Wippa this morning that he's low key sick of everyone bashing Abbie.
"I think she was coming from a protective place," Matt said diplomatically. "I appreciate it but at this point of the process I want to focus on my relationships with the women instead of a game of he said, she said."
