Let me put this out there straight away: I’m not a Bachelor In Paradise fan. Needless to say that I’m not exactly the right person to write about these sorts of shows. But after being told to watch this season of the problematic show, I’m quickly coming around on Bachelor In Paradise, not because the show is suddenly good but because Abbie Chatfield is a goddamn legend.
After just one episode – and a lot of patience in putting up with irritating former Bachelorette and Bachelor contestants – I’m putting all my chips on Abbie Chatfield to triumph on Bachelor In Paradise and you all should too because she’s got all the qualities we want in a contestant.
Speaking reality shows, the GOAT team froth over the recent season of ‘Masterchef’ on ‘It’s Been A Big Day For…’ below:
She knows what she wants and isn’t afraid to get it
There was a lot of talking, shots of Ciarran’s grave-covered crotch and a heap of introductions to this season’s BiP. But rising above all that is Abbie’s determination to get what she wants.
Abbie signaled her intentions almost right off the bat when she unashamedly declared how horny she was for Ciarran and is here for some hot sex, which is what everyone is here for honestly.
You need a lot of confidence to come out of the gates declaring that you’re horny and here for some sex. And boy is Abbie Chatfield oozing in confidence on Bachelor In Paradise.
Not only is she giving off serious DGAF vibes, but it’s super empowering to see Abbie own her sexuality and while being completely comfortable in her own skin.
That being said, there’s a heap of drama surrounding Ciarran, his cheating ways, and what’s sure to be a showdown with Cass so this will get messy. But hey, there’s no reason why Abbie won’t come out on top (literally) with her proactive, go-getter attitude.
She’s hilarious and actually has a personality
If you look up ‘bubbly’ in the dictionary, you’d find the definition of bubbly. But if I were editing the dictionary, I’d include a photo of Abbie because everything she says is just entertaining and tinged with a never-ending tone of optimism. That’s the sort of attitude we need during these dark times.
But more importantly, she actually comes off as an actual human being with a personality and her comment about not wanting to come off as a “competitive, aggressive bitch” in her pursuit of Ciarran shows some degree of self-awareness of what’s going on in regards to how Bachelor In Paradise is depicting her and how she was previously depicted on The Bachelor.
She deserves a happy ending dammit
Look, after what happened with Matt Agnew, Abbie Chatfield needs to triumph on Bachelor In Paradise after what went down on The Bachelor because she deserves the happy ending that was brutally taken away from her. Someone as confident and awesome as Abbie deserves a big win goddammit.
