In the seven years that The Bachelor Australia has been on our screens, few of the show’s stars have copped more hate than Abbie Chatfield.

While the 25-year-old has never shied away from talking about online trolls and bullying, she’s now been reduced to tears while discussing this season of Bachelor In Paradise.

Abbie was dubbed a villain when she first appeared on Matt Agnew’s season of The Bachelor in 2019.

Unashamedly sexy and confident, Abbie’s outspoken nature instantly made her an outcast from the other women in the mansion and a target for trolls online.

When Abbie returned for this season of Bachelor In Paradise, the attitude amongst her fellow reality stars hadn’t changed much.

In recently released footage, Mary Viturino and Cass Mamone can be seen slagging off Abbie behind her back, for nothing more than wearing a bikini … in Fiji.

“I’m so glad she got the **** out,” Cass can be heard saying.

“It was supposed to be Abbie’s season two,” Mary adds.

Taking to Instagram, Abbie shared the footage and claimed it was another example where she was bullied for no good reason, particularly when she says she was never nasty or rude to her fellow BIP stars.

“I did not want this to be Abbie season two,” she says in an emotional video.

“Just because I got more attention than you, does not mean it is a good thing. 

“I’m getting accused of wanting attention for getting into a pool with a bikini on.”

The reality star goes on to say that the footage is a perfect example of the bullying she endured behind the scenes.

“In no scenes anywhere in there is me talking badly about anyone, they would use it, if the stuff was there, they would use it,” she says as she fights back tears.  

“I’ve been gaslit for a month by this whole country and these girls saying that I’m the bad person, I’m the villain when all they do is this.

“For the first time you guys can see what I am saying when I said I was targeted.”
