The Bachelor with Matt James was supposed to be a big leap forward for the franchise, because it featured Matt as the first person of color as the lead.
However, the season managed to put the franchise back years over recent scandals and not vetting contestants prior to casting them on the show.
Plus, Chris Harrison stepped away from his hosting duties after not condemning racism during an interview with Rachel Lindsay, where he was asked to address recent photos of Rachael Kirkconnell from a party in 2018.
Given the recent developments in Bachelor Nation, fans already know the outcome of Matt’s season and whether he is still with his final pick.

“Watching these last few episodes is just gonna be…weird,” he wrote in a tweet.
“Nothing about any of these storylines are relevant anymore, knowing what we know now.”
During Monday’s episode, Serena Pitt decided to eliminate herself after realizing that she was missing some major components in her relationship with Matt. It simply wasn’t where she wanted it to be.
Michelle Young, who joined the show a few weeks in, seemingly won over Matt. Bri Springs also impressed Matt, even though she revealed that she had to quit her job to meet him. However, spoilers have revealed that Matt will pick Rachael Kirkconnell in the end, though he will not propose.
Reality Steve has followed along with every development
Reality Steve has followed along every development along the way and was quick to share Matt’s statement on his own social media this week.
Matt James issued a statement this week, revealing he was completely heartbroken by recent events. he also shared that he was disappointed and that the last couple of weeks had been some of the toughest in his life.
Matt’s statement came after Reality Steve reported that Matt and Rachael had broken up. Steve had previously revealed that Matt didn’t propose to Rachael, but instead gave her a promise ring.
That scene, along with the After The Final Rose follow-up, is expected to air in a couple of weeks on ABC. As of right now, we don’t know who the host will be.
