“Abbie has been talking to multiple guys on Instagram including … last year’s runner-up from Ali Oetjen’s season of The Bachelorette, Todd King,” an insider dished to New Idea last month.
Rumours reached fever pitch when Abbie posted an impassioned note on the horrors of slut-shaming on Instagram, and Todd commented, leading the pair to a flirty exchange.
“Absolutely living for this! I can't stand the double standards. Well said, Abbie,” Todd wrote.
“Send me a date card already, you feminist icon,” Abbie replied, whipping fans into a frenzy.
It follows on from reports that Abbie had admitted to a secret romance since leaving the Bachie mansion.
“I am dating someone, but I can’t say who it is,” she apparently gushed to another contestant.
Both Todd and Abbie were left heartbroken after coming so close to love, only to be dumped on national TV.
But could the shared experience only make this budding new romance even stronger?
