Abbie Chatfield’s rant about the COVID-19 vaccination was remixed into a song, but it’s just missed out on this year’s Hottest 100.
The Bachelor star turned Instagram sensation, 26, launched a full blown rant at anti-vaxxers on her podcast It’s a Lot last year, saying: “You need to stop telling people you don’t want the vaccine because actually, who the fuck are you to say ‘I don’t trust it’? I know you do Ketamine!”
The rant was then composed into a bop by Melbourne DJ Candy Moore — real name Calum Newton — with the title ‘I Know You Do Ketamine’.
Both Chatfield and Moore strongly encouraged their fans to vote for the song in this year’s Hottest 100 countdown, with many people revealing they’d already voted for the banger.
Alas, it was all in vain. Triple j kicked off their Hottest 100 Weekend today by counting down from 200 to 101, or those unlucky to not get enough votes to make it into the top 100.
‘I Know You Do Ketamine’ came in at 162, which isn’t too bad but Chatfield and Moore probably expected to place higher given the swell of social media support behind their campaign. You never can tell with the Hottest 100 though.

“Should been higher,” insisted one fan on Instagram, which Chatfield endorsed by sharing on her Story.
Since starring on The Bachelor two years ago, Abbie Chatfield’s career has moved on the up and up. She has recently been given her own radio show on Hit Network, Hot Nights with Abbie Chatfield, which will be airing weeknights from 7-9pm.
Do you think ‘I Know You Do Ketamine’ deserved to place higher? Stay tuned for more updates as the Hottest 100 weekend continues, including the reveal of this year’s winner. Here’s to The Wiggles.
