How Matt James’s finale goes
As viewers know, Matt is left with Bri Springs, Rachael Kirkconnell and Michelle Young for the overnight fantasy suite dates.
Bri is then reportedly eliminated during the rose ceremony following the overnight dates.
Matt then comes face to face with his father and was reportedly largely impacted by the conversation. Reality Steve believes that Matt didn’t know his dad would be coming and that it was a production surprise.
Then both Rachael and Michelle meet Matt’s mother. After bringing Michelle to meet his mother, the two go to dinner. Despite gifting him a matching jersey, Matt reportedly sends Michelle home after telling her he’s not in love with her and confirms that he is there with Rachael.
After the emotional breakup, he cancels his date with Rachael. Reality Steve believes that viewers are meant to suspect that Matt might not pick anyone at this point.
The next day, Rachael finds a letter from Matt in which he apologizes and tells her to meet by the lake where they had their overnight.
To Rachael’s surprise, this ends up becoming the big final rose moment. While she may have been expecting a proposal, he doesn’t give her that.
Instead he offers her the final rose and expresses that he loves her and can’t see spending the rest of his life without her.
While Rachael admits that she was mad at him for canceling their date, she accepts the rose and the two agree to continue exploring their relationship.
What happens to Matt James and his pick after the finale?
Rumors have been circulating that Matt and Rachael have already broken up amid the social media controversy surrounding Rachael.
Reality Steve confirms that Matt broke up with Rachael after spending Valentine’s Day weekend together.
He admitted that he isn’t sure if the rumors that state he broke up with her over the controversy are true but he does know that there is no chance of reconciliation between Rachael and Matt.
