Abbie Chatfield suffers from a number of VERY embarrassing blunders during her debut as a live host on Love Island Australia Afterparty… but she still receives rave reviews from viewers
Abbie Chatfield made a number of trial and error when she debuted as a host at Love Island Australia’s Afterparty on Thursday night.
The former Bachelor star, 26, had the grueling task of hosting the Channel Nine spinoff show live for the very first time in front of the nation – which undoubtedly resulted in some startup issues.
Abbie first fell at her words during a chat with season one stars Josh Moss and Amelia Marni, telling the couple, “Josh and Amelia… Do you remember when you?” Sorry. Josh and Amelia, the first time … wow. ‘

“It was canceled, Soph! Abbie responded, which was followed by seconds of awkward silence after Sophie couldn’t seem to hear the answer.
Always professional, Abbie continued, “She still had a good run… So it’s a miracle the show is even happening now!”

“I know it smells good,” said Abbie, to which Sophie said, “I think it’s changing so drastically” – still answering an older question about the islander she prefers.
“The scent, or just who we love?” Abbie replied that she had ended up with another rewarding silence, before Sophie said, “Say it again?”
