Jackson briefly dated Brittney Weldon after the pair met on Bachelor In Paradise, but the pair have since split.
The Bachelorette cast were reportedly upset with the choice of Elly and and her sister Becky Miles, after hearing rumours Channel 10 was going to cast a celebrity instead.
According to Woman’s Day on Monday, this year’s suitors were ‘disappointed and underwhelmed’ to be greeted by the self-confessed ‘country girls’.

‘The boys were really gutted,’ a source told the publication.
‘They really thought they had a celebrity and were somewhat underwhelmed with their choices,’ the insider added.
The report also claimed that several contestants were expecting to meet former Dancing with the Stars judge Sharna Burgess.
One suitor was apparently so deflated by Sharna’s absence that he told his co-stars he would not have bothered applying for the show if he’d known Elly and Becky were going to be the Bachelorettes.

‘I know a lot of the guys wanted Sharna and I think a lot of them probably would have pulled out had they known it was going to be Elly and Becky,’ the source added.
Sharna, 35, has claimed that Channel 10 offered her the role of Bachelorette, but she turned them down.
In a podcast interview in August, she said: ‘They offered it to me a couple of times actually.’
‘I considered it long and hard and thought about it, but it didn’t feel right for me.’
