The drama erupted when Abbie Chatfield kissed Bachelor Matt Agnew, and then she spilled to Matt, 32, what contender Monique Morley had said about him, causing more chaos in the mansion.
"The house is totally divided," says Mary, 31, who, along with many of the other girls, believes that Abbie, 23, is playing hard to win Matt's heart.
"I think she's very young, but she's being strategic," she spills.

Not only that, the Brazilian mum-of-one admits she feels Abbie has been a 'snitch', and believes it was all part of her 'game plan' to kick Monique off the show.
"I'm pretty confident she did tell Matt [what Monique said], so he would look at Monique in a different light," tells Mary.
The stunning Bachelor contestant added: "I think it's come out of jealousy. Monique seemed like a frontrunner, so Abbie did what she did!"
