She's making a move.

Maddison takes matters into her own hands on The Bachelors Australia this week when her bachelor, Ben, doesn’t choose her for a single date. Refusing to take no for an answer, she turns up at the Bachelor pad uninvited to get his attention.

“No-one else is making a move on the guys,” Maddison tells TV WEEK. “In an environment like that, it’s important to show my feelings for Ben. I’m big on communication, hence why I’m forward with my feelings.”

The 24-year-old marketing specialist from Victoria reveals she had little to no time with Ben in the first few dates, so wanted the opportunity to get to know him on a deeper level.

“I go into my shell when we’re in group settings, so I felt it was important to spend one-on-one time with him,” she explains. “Honesty and communication are important for me, so telling Ben what I want early in the relationship is an important standard I wanted to set.”

Maddison describes herself as a straight shooter not afraid to voice her opinions – which gets her in trouble with some of the other bachelorettes when she feels some of them aren’t genuine in their reasons for being there.

“My issue is that behind closed doors, some girls are saying they’re unhappy with their Bachelor,” she says. “It’s especially disappointing to hear them deny it [after she raises the subject].

“I think some respected me for it, while others thought I was just stirring the pot, but my heart is in the right place. I hate time-wasters, so I won’t watch people play others without warning them about what’s being said.”

Despite that, she gets along well with most of the other bachelorettes she’s sharing the Melbourne mansion with.

“I’m having a really good experience with the girls,” she says. “After filming, we’ll cook up a bunch of food and sit around, eat and talk. It’s like being on school camp every day – it’s so fun.”
