This is the first romantic relationship Chelsie has had since confirming her split from 2019 Bachelor Matt Agnew last November. Despite Agnew admitting it was “with a heavy heart” that he’d parted ways with Chelsie, she has spoken differently about their break-up, previously hinting that The Bachelor star had indeed cheated on her.

It all started when Chelsie commented on her Bachelor co-star Jessica Brody's Instagram photo where she's holding a rose.
"Me ➡️vs.➡️ Me when he tells me I’m the only girl he’s talking to🌹" read the caption.
Chelsie commented on the photo with a VERY pointed statement: "triggeredddddd'
Chelsie's good friend Rachel Arahill, who was also on the show, replied to her comment, adding fuel to the fire.
"@chelsiemcleod Bahaha haahahha when u can finally say triggred as well. ytg"
Chelsie replied, "@rachaelarahill triggered is an understatement tbf."
McLeod has since addressed the dating rumours with Doran, insisting that their friendship is purely platonic. You can try and fool as all you like girl, but that cuddle was certainly not nothing.
