Abbie Chatfield reveals she ‘sobbed’ on the plane ride home after placing runner-up on The Bachelor

Abbie Chatfield reveals she ‘sobbed’ the entire plane ride home after she placed runner-up on The Bachelor

She famously placed runner-up on Matt Agnew’s season of The Bachelor two years ago.

And now Abbie Chatfield has revealed that her feelings for the 32-year-old astrophysicist were very real.

‘I cried the whole way home. I got a row to myself and was sobbing listening to ‘Thank U Next’ by Ariana Grande,’ she told Andy Lee on The Hundred.

During her appearance on the Channel Nine game show, Abbie asked a virtual audience if she would answer ‘yes’ when asked if it was a good idea to appear on a dating show.

It turns out only 35 per cent thought it would be a good idea, with Abbie agreeing.

‘I’ve been dumped three times in front of Australia so probably not [a good idea]. I probably should have asked The Hundred before I went on,’ she laughed.

Back in May, Abbie revealed she ‘still cries’ about Matt, who famously chose her love rival Chelsie McLeod during The Bachelor’s tear-jerking finale. 

Speaking on her tell-all podcast It’s A Lot, the blonde confessed:  ‘I told a man that I loved him after like, two months on The Bachelor. That’s quite unwell. That’s not right in the head.

‘I still cry about him sometimes. That’s going to be a Daily Mail headline – that’s fine. Give me free advertising for the podcast, thank you!’

Despite being thoroughly confident he would chose her, Matt said his ‘heart belongs to someone else’ during the final in South Africa – chose fellow chemical engineer Chelsie instead. 

However, the two weren’t meant to be, and broke up just three months after the final episode aired.

After her time on the show, Abbie penned an emotional Instagram post thanking the Matt for the journey they shared together. 

She wrote: ‘It’s been the toughest but most rewarding year of my life and I’ll forever be grateful to the experience and also to Matt.

‘It changed my life, and the adversity faced during and after the show is the reason I get to do what I love, and also the reason I got to look the hottest I will ever look.’
