The Bachelor’s Matt James Reacts to Controversy Surrounding Rachael Kirkconnell’s Social Media
But if Monday night’s episode was any indication, two things were made very clear: Matt isn’t tolerating any drama and Rachael is proving to be a frontrunner.
In fact, the duo had their first one-on-one date, in which the graphic designer enjoyed a shopping spree. When she teared up over her new Christian Louboutin heels, Matt was taken aback and looked even more smitten over her.
After dinner, Matt admitted that he could see himself falling in love with Rachael and proposing to her.
“I think that first group date is when she really caught my eye…,” Matt told ET of his instant attraction to Rachael. “This has been a steady progression… since the first week. It was a feeling I hadn’t felt, and… this is nothing that [producers are] telling me to say or do, it’s just, I felt it in the moment and I had never felt it before.”
