It’s been a rollercoaster seven weeks, but we’re finally reaching the end of another Bachelor series.

From the very beginning we’ve been told that chemical engineer Chelsie McLeod wins bachie Matt Agnew’s heart in the final episode… and we’re less than 48 hours away from knowing if that is true, or if we’ve been monumentally duped.

As usual, rumours are swirling as ‘sources’ come out of the woodwork to spill the tea, some of it probably made up, to get us pumped for the final two episodes.

Because said ‘sources’ are really putting the work in, we’ve collated all the rumours here in one place for your convenience:

Matt and his winner have broken up.

New Idea reported Chelsie McLeod, who has long been the frontrunner for Matt’s heart, is “distancing herself from the franchise” and “refusing to do interviews”.

An insider told the magazine Chelsie had been turning down recent media appearances and was “really down”.

Chelsie has long been the bookmaker’s pick for the winner over Abbie and Helena and we at Mamamia also think it’s pretty likely she'll be the last woman standing.

The chemical engineer lives a 10 minute walk away from the astrophysicist in Melbourne, is in the middle of the top three photo (which is usually a pretty accurate giveaway), and all of the dumped former contestants have given her the green flag.

New Idea suggested she does indeed win, but the romance has since fizzled.

"Since the finale, everyone has heard there’s been problem after problem – they were just not seeing eye-to-eye on anything and didn’t have any chemistry. Once the cameras stopped rolling, the sparkle just wore off,” the insider revealed.

Wait, no they haven't.

Matt has been open about how he found love on the show.

Speaking to Mamamia before the show began airing, he said he was currently in love... with a woman who he saved in his phone as 'Rose'. Creative.

We also heard from whisper-extraordinaire Osher Günsberg on the Logies red carpet, who told Mamamia that Matt definitely chooses someone (No Honey Badger repeat here!). And he’s still with that someone.

Matt's going to do a Blake Garvey.

Allow us to cast your mind back to 2014 when we watched Blake propose to Sam Frost in the finale… only to dump her after the show for second runner-up Louise Pillidge.

It was a lot. But now apparently, we're in for a bit of déjà vu.


Yeah, it's not enough for Matt and his chosen bachelorette to simply breakup: The Daily Mail reported it was also aware of rumours that Matt has quietly split from Chelsie and is now dating runner-up Abbie.

It all stemmed from a response he gave on Have You Been Paying Attention when he said he was with "a girl from the show", but didn't specify that it was the one he chose at the end.

Then on The Kyle and Jackie O Show, he continued to be... vague when asked by Kyle if he was "pulling a Blake Garvey?"

"No ... what's the... I have heard whispers of this?" Matt replied, not very convincingly.

"Do you have any more details of this?" he asked, before claiming he likes "to be suitably vague".

We see.

Matt's going to propose to his winner soon.

Matt's made no secret of the fact he's ready for marriage and babies, well, yesterday, and the bach himself has admitted he could soon pop the question to his new partner.

When asked on Nova 96.9’s On Air With Smallzy Show whether he's ready to take the next step in his relationship, Matt responded by saying, "it's heating up".

Then he revealed the last text message he received from his winner said: "Ready when you are :P."

Is your neck sore? It's whiplash, from all these conflicting reports.

Bring on Thursday night, so we can finally move on with our lives (at least until The Bachelorette begins!)
