Well. Who would have thought we would be… here. In the middle of a “dog c*nt” stoush on The Bachelor Australia.
Precisely no one.
But it’s happened and Vakoo, who was eliminated by Matt Agnew on Thursday night, says it completely divided the house.
The tension was “very real”, the 23-year-old tells Mamamia. “It was just very intense.”
In case you missed it, or would like a refresher, Monique allegedly called Matt a swear (see above) and Abbie took it upon herself to inform their shared boyfriend of the… betrayal. But the issue is, you see, Monique can’t actually remember if she called her pretend boyfriend the c-word, meaning she can’t confirm or deny.
Nevertheless, the women in the mansion turned on Abbie for being the whistle blower none of them asked for.

“If Abbie really had such a problem with it, and felt so strongly about it enough to tell Matt, she should have pulled Monique to the side and said ‘I heard you say this comment and I thought that was out of line,” Vakoo tells Mamamia.
“Then she could have given Mon a chance to explain herself first because when she told Matt, Mon wasn’t there to defend herself. That’s what I would have done,” she recalls, adding that Monique definitely said the accused phrase.
