Abbie Chatfield is one of the two people Brooke Blurton chose to grill her final two on The Bachelorette, but her surprise appearance has left many fans scratching their heads.

Though both women share similar reality TV backgrounds – each doing a stint on The Bachelor, then another on Bachelor in Paradise – casual viewers may assume that's where their connection ends.

But it seems the dynamic duo are actually pretty good friends behind the scenes, and if you look closely, all the signs are there.

From podcast appearances, to cheeky flirtations and even a tearful video on Instagram, this is what Brooke Blurton and Abbie Chatfield's friendship is really like.

Abbie and Brooke’s Bachelor journeys

Both women got their reality TV starts on The Bachelor and became darlings of the internet, making it all the more crushing when they both had their hearts broken.

In 2018, Brooke headed into the mansion to meet Nick "Honey Badger" Cummins and made it almost all the way to the end, only to leave the show right before the finale.

Nick ended up choosing no one, so it looked like Brooke dodged some serious heartbreak by taking herself out of the running.

But Abbie wasn't so lucky when she appeared on Matt Agnew's season in 2019, making it all the way to the finale before having her hopes dashed.

Of course, she reacted in classic Abbie fashion when Matt dumped her: by telling it like it was.

Getting in to the car as she left, Abbie said to the crew: "Get me the f--- away from here. I want to go home."

After their respective stints on the main franchise, both women went on to star on Bachelor in Paradise; Brooke in 2019 and Abbie in 2020.

Though their paths hadn't yet publicly crossed, it was clear these two ladies would have a lot to talk about when they finally met.

Brooke hits up Abbie’s podcast

The dynamic duo first appeared together publicly in early 2021, when Brooke starred on Abbie's podcast It's A Lot.

But before that episode ever aired, Brooke actually asked Abbie out on a date – twice!

They never did manage to make plans though, Abbie revealing: "I said yes babe; when you asked me on a date, I said yes.

"But at the time, there was something called Coronavirus happening, and you couldn't go to Western Australia."

Fortunately, Brooke wasn't too put off and was happy to build a friendship with Abbie instead.

"We're the most platonic friends now. She fully denied the fact that I actually wanted to take her on a date and danced around the question [on the podcast]," Brooke told news.com.au in May.

That didn't stop Brooke from flirting with Abbie in the recording studio and it was clear from the episode that the two women had a great connection.

They solidified their friendship afterwards, often liking and commenting on each other's social media posts.

Abbie’s tearful reaction to Brooke being announced as the Bachelorette

From the moment Brooke was announced as the 2021 Bachelorette, Abbie was one of her biggest cheerleaders and that couldn't have been more obvious than the night the season premiered.

Taking to Instagram, Abbie shared clips of herself in tears as she watched an emotional Brooke enter the mansion.

Brooke Shields reflects on being a child star in Hollywood: 'My looking a certain way paid the bills'

  Brooke Shields reflects on being a child star in Hollywood: 'My looking a certain way paid the bills' Brooke Shields is the quintessential Hollywood child star. She got her start in a TV commercial at 11 months old and by the time she was a teenager in the '80s, she was appearing in highly sexualised modelling gigs for Calvin Klein and movie roles including The Blue Lagoon. But Shields, who was raised by her single parent Teri, knew all too well that working was her ticket to a better life — and she never once complained about it to her actress mum.

The 26-year-old Noongar-Yamatji woman was greeted at the mansion with a moving Welcome to Country, which had Abbie weeping.

"I'm so excited, that literally made me cry seeing her face up there," Abbie captioned one clip on her Instagram Stories.

"Imagine how this is going to feel to every Indigenous person who hasn't ever seen themselves represented.

"This is even like... for me, someone Bi, I'm crying. There's the LGBT element. Oh my god, I didn't think I'd cry and I actually cant stop."

Fans loved seeing how supportive Abbie was of her friend, not even knowing that Abbie would actually play a role in the ground-breaking season.

Fans were shocked when Abbie appeared in a teaser for the final episode of Brooke's season of The Bachelorette.

It looked like she would be standing in for Brooke's family and grilling the final two contestants – Jamie-Lee Dayz and Darvid Garayeli – with another of Brooke's pals.

"That's so unfair. I don't like that. Grow up," she can be heard telling Darvid in the preview and wow, those are fighting words.

The segment is set to air in the finale tonight and we have no doubt Abbie will have plenty to say.

Especially given that she went through her own brutal grilling when she was on Matt's season and his pal Kate interrogated her.

"I've got to be honest," Kate confessed when she took Abbie away for a private chat. "I was surprised to hear that you had come down to the final two."

Abbie wasn't sold on her either, saying: "She's horrible. Why is Matt friends with her? She's possessive."

We're guessing she'll take some inspiration from her experience with Kate when she grills Brooke's final two.

But before her cameo was even hinted at on the show, something else happened in the real world.

Similar taste in guys (AKA the Konrad situation)

In November, reports started flooding in that Abbie had been spotted hooking up with Konrad Bien-Stephens, one of Brooke's fan-favourite contestants.

At the time, he was still a frontrunner on the show and seeing him cosied up with Abbie left fans bewildered.

She and Konrad kept tight-lipped about the situation until his elimination aired, after which they confirmed their romance.

"As much as I'm super grateful to have met Brooke - Abbie, what can I say?" Konrad told TV WEEK. "She's an amazing girl and I'm excited to see what the future holds."

Meanwhile, Abbie shared some loved-up snaps on Instagram – but what did Brooke think?

The Bachelorette hasn't publicly commented on Abbie and Konrad's relationship, but she has reportedly unfollowed Abbie on Instagram.
