Just all the evidence that Abbie Chatfield is definitely headed to Bachelor in Paradise.

Grab yourself a mango daiquiri, because we’ve officially reached the time of the year where Bachelor and Bachelorette stars pack their swimsuits and jet off to Fiji for 1. A free holiday and 2. Another chance to find love.

The first rumoured participant of next year’s Bachelor in Paradise season is 2019’s Bach runner-up Abbie Chatfield, who has admitted to being open to doing the show.

Our evidence? We’re glad you asked.

“Can I borrow you for a sec?” = Let’s go make out behind those bushes in Bachie land. Post continues below video.

Firstly, we know for a fact that Paradise films in Fiji in November/December each year.

Secondly, according to photos published by the Daily Mail, Abbie was spotted ‘attempting to go incognito’ in a cap, sunglasses and hoodie at Brisbane Airport on Sunday as she prepared to board a flight to Fiji.

Mamamia don’t publish paparazzi photos, but I have gone to the trouble of creating this very accurate and well-executed artistic impression so you know what we’re working with:

She's wearing... a hoodie... and a hat... It was hard okay.

In hindsight, this was probably the least of my worries.

Our investigation tells us Abbie, who is usually pretty active on social media, has not shared anything to her Instagram since early Sunday afternoon.

Maybe she's been real busy travelling for a personal holiday, maybe she's just not doing... anything worth posting about or maaaaybe she's about to take part in a reality TV show that does not allow her to share content until filming is over. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Our final piece of evidence comes from a September interview Abbie did with Nova 96.9's Fitzy & Wippa.

"You're single, you're famous and you have Bachelor in Paradise right around the corner," Fitzy said. "Congratulations on that."

Abbie laughed before responding: "I think it's a really good process and I know what I'm doing now. I probably wouldn't say on camera 'I'm really horny' again though, so I've learned my lesson."

See? If that ain't confirmation, we'll pour this whole damn mango daiquiri out.

Abbie was a polarising figure on Matt Agnew's season of The Bachelor, and following the show she's become known for her epic take downs of bodyshamers, slutshamers and the double standards between the Bach and Bachelorette.

We reckon she'd make a great addition to Paradise.
