Abbie's sister Jolie originally shared the video from the viewing party to her Stories but it was promptly deleted.
Since the footage surfaced, Abbie has hit back at claims she was slamming the astrophysicist, telling the Daily Mail that her facial expressions "had nothing to do with Matt".
She said, "The footage referred to is from a viewing party for Episode 1. The ‘cringe’ comment was in relation to seeing myself on television for the first time and the Gemini joke."
Wednesday night's episode of The Bachelor had fans confused as fan favourite Elly Miles was sent home in favour of Abbie. At this point in time, Monique Morley, Sogand Mohtat and Matt's very own best friend, Kate, have all doubted Abbie's motives, however, annoyingly, he refuses to listen.
Elly has put her finger on why Matt is ignoring everyone... according to the affable nurse, he's letting their sexual chemistry cloud his judgement.
Elly isn't the only contestant who has a theory about Abbie's appearance on the show. Last week, eliminated Bachie star Kristen Czyszek told Yahoo, that although she hasn't made herself a favourite in her fellow contestants' eyes, Matt is yet to see her true colours.
“Abbie has such a big personality and we all have different ways of coping in [The Bachelor] environment, she copes with a lot of things through laughs and jokes."
