This season, Elly has made a name for herself as one of the most loved contestants we've seen to date. As a result, former Bachelor star Sam Wood reckons she has what it takes to win Matt's heart.
"Snez and I were saying the other day that we really like Elly, and she's been real. Obviously, all the girls seem lovely, but I think she's been one that just really stands out because she's been so real," the reality TV star told Popsugar. "he strikes me as the kind of guy that [being real's] really important to him and he's there for the right reasons too. So, I wouldn't be surprised if they ended up [together], but it is The Bachelor, so you never know!"
Having scored the most one-on-one time with the hunky astrophysicist, their connection has continued to strengthen throughout the season. However, an insider recently told New Idea that Elly was given a head start, having crossed paths with Matt before the show began.
“Most of the girls knew Elly had history with Matt and it caused a lot of tension in the house,” the insider dished.
After the ladies caught on, the source claimed they confronted the 24-year-old about her history with 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.”
