Our final Fast 50 for the year, and we’re finishing off with a goodie. Abbie Chatfield – the curly-haired vivacious blonde that the cameras could not get enough of on this year’s The Bachelor Australia.
For those of you who watched the show or follow Abbie Chatfield on Instagram, you’ll know her to be extremely real, raw, vocal and vulnerable – something we’re big fans of here at Husskie (we like it when spades are called out for being spades). And yes, this does see her cop way more flak than anyone deserves.
With sensationalist headlines continuing to follow her everywhere she goes, we decided to reach out to Abbie to strip it all back and find out a few facts that have nothing to do with her “sensational curves” or our hook-up hunches. Some lighthearted truths (although, being dumped on a rock in South Africa may have come up…)
So here it is, Husskie’s one-on-one with Abbie where she tells us everything from crushes to being crushed, beers, beauty, and Bachie. Enjoy and happy holidays.
