Why did Matt and Rachael break up?

Matt chose Rachael Kirkconnell as the winner of his season of ABC’s The Bachelor.

Although they did not seal the deal with an engagement, the couple decided to explore their feelings for one another after filming ended at the end of 2020.

The couple was reportedly still in a relationship until racially insensitive photographs where Rachael was dressed in old south antebellum clothing surfaced online. She attended a party while at college, described as an “Antebellum plantation-themed ball” by fraternity Kappa Alpha. 

During The Bachelor: After the Final Rose, Rachael owned up to her past mistakes and intended to move forward with a new sense of understanding about why Matt and many Bachelor fans condemned her actions.
