Matt began his break-up speech by saying: ‘Abbie, I still vividly can remember seeing you walking down the red carpet, having that “wow” moment.
‘But I have to be honest with myself and with you. My heart belongs with someone else. It devastates me to lose someone so incredible. And I’ve treasured every moment we’ve had. And you deserve…’
Abbie then interrupted: ‘So… OK, that’s fine. Can you explain further why?

‘I don’t… I really don’t understand how? I don’t know what to say. This is completely heartbreaking. Completely, absolutely heartbreaking.’
Speaking to producers in the lonely drive back to the hotel, Abbie said: ‘It’s OK. I’m so completely fine. I feel fine. I’m mostly just mad about the flight home now. I’m honestly not upset. It’s fine. I couldn’t even cry if I tried, right now.
‘Maybe I don’t love him. Like, honestly, maybe I don’t love him, I’m not even upset. It’s OK. He’s chosen someone that will make him happy. Chelsie will make him happy.’

She’s changed her mind! In the drive back, Abbie told producers, ‘Maybe I don’t love him. Like, honestly, maybe I don’t love him, I’m not even upset’
She added: ‘Whatever he thinks is right. I just want to forget about it. I’ll get over this before it even airs, it’s gonna be fine… I’m just… Yeah, I’m just embarrassed.
‘It’s really hard and I just think I feel silly for thinking that, you know, that it would work out with Matt. I feel horrible.
‘And, like, I will… I will get over this and I’m so resilient, so resilient. I just never thought I would… feel this way from this… experience.’
Life goes on! ‘Whatever he thinks is right. I just wanna forget about it. You know, I’ll get over this before it even airs,’ the heartbroken 23-year-old continued
Taking to Instagram after the episode aired, Abbie reflected on her heartbreak four months after filming the show.
‘The only way I can describe this moment is complete and utter shock. I was numb. I couldn’t and didn’t want to feel anything,’ she wrote.
‘I had felt for weeks that what Matt and I had was real and I trusted him wholeheartedly when he told me how he felt about me.

‘Hearing Matt say, “My heart is with someone else”, reminded me that we were filming and that Matt had to make a difficult decision, and he did not see in me what I saw in him. I felt silly for ever imagining Matt would love me.
‘The second the cameras turned off, I sobbed. I screamed. I couldn’t breathe. I didn’t think think this would be how we would end.
‘I spent weeks crying about this relationship that had almost no closure. I still haven’t fully healed from my relationship with Matt, but I know he and the gorgeous woman he is with are happy, and that’s all that matters.’
