After reporter Matilda Bodeley shared a screenshot of the post in question, writing, "So..... This is Holly's Instagram," replies starting flooding in.
"Yikes," one user simply wrote, to which another replied, "there goes your prediction".
"I knew the vibes were off," another added.
Author Jenna Guillaume also joined the conversation, saying that Holly's desire for someone with "strong traditional core values" turned out to be "the exact red flag it seemed to be".
New Idea reached out to Holly for comment on the post in question, who explained that the caption is in no way a reflection of her political leanings.
"The comment I made on my Instagram caption from 2018 which made reference to US politics, was made in jest and with complete sarcasm intended," Holly tells us.
She continues: "It’s fairly evident I use satire a lot on my social media platforms. This comment in no way, shape or form is an accurate representation of my political beliefs."
According to So Dramatic!'s Meghan Pustetto, a production insider has revealed that the contestants had to sign over their social media passwords for the duration of the show and, while the show airs, their posts have to be vetted for approval.
Comments will also be turned off and their DMs will only be open to people they follow.

Former Bachelor contestant Abbie Chatfield, who was a target of incessant online harassment while her season was airing, has since spoken out about the new social media contract, explaining she is all for it.
"This is genuinely the best thing for the contestants," wrote Abbie on a Pedestrian Instagram post about the social media ban. "It stops them seeing the trolling completely. I wish we had this in my season."
