"Abbie has been talking to multiple guys on Instagram including Married at First Sight's Billy Vincent and last year's runner up from Ali Oetjen's season of the Bachelorette, Todd King," an insider dished to New Idea.

"I am dating someone, but I can’t say who it is,” she apparently gushed to another contestant. “I wish I could tell you, but I can’t.”
