Bushnell, who got engaged to Ben Higgins during The Bachelor's 20th season, does look slimmer than she did on the show, but she insists that that isn't the case.

"THIS IS THE EXACT SAME WEIGHT I WAS WHEN I STARTED THE BACHELOR THEN I DRANK WINE EVERY DAY WITH @amanda_stantonn AND THEN AFTER THE SHOW I DIDNT DRINK WINE EVERY DAY GET OFF MY SH*T THIS IS HOW GOD MADE ME BYE," she wrote in a comment on a photo of her posted by Higgins, showing her sitting at a table with her arms half-raised. Higgins captioned the shot, "She's mine. Straight Flexin. #fitgirl," prompting a rebuke from Bushnell, who accused him of feeding online trolls with the photo and the comment.

"@higgins.ben babe you are literally asking for trolls to comment on my weight. Also not actually flexing duh Get a better pic when I’m straight out of the gym n swoll n stuff," she wrote.

She's mine. Straight Flexin. #fitgirl
