Rachael Kirkconnell and Matt James are allowing their relationship another shot. The Bachelor star told People, “I’ve seen Rachael, a bunch of times.” “Aside from that, I’m not looking for any other relationships right now. I said I was going to concentrate on my relationship with her, which means I’m going to concentrate on it.” Matt and Rachael met on season 25 of The Bachelor in 2020, but their relationship ended before the finale aired in March. Matt announced the split on After the Final Rose, which occurred after Rachael was exposed for racist behavior in the past.
During the season of The Bachelor, pictures of Rachael attending an antebellum-themed party in 2018 went viral. Rachael later apologized for going to the Old South-themed event. She acknowledged that she didn’t realize how problematic the theme was at the time of the party, but she promised to make amends now. Unfortunately, the harm had already been done, and Matt explained in March that he ended their relationship to “put in [the] work” to educate herself on racism and how to be an antiracist.
When Matt and Rachael were spotted together in New York City at the beginning of April, fans began to believe that they had reconciled. Around the same time, Grace Amerling came forward to say that she had seen Matt after his breakup with Rachael. Grace claimed to have met Matt in early 2020, but their relationship fizzled out when he went on The Bachelor later that year. According to Grace’s story, they began seeing each other again after Matt and Rachael’s breakup. Matt allegedly invited Grace to Miami just DAYS before being caught with Rachael in NYC.
Rachael Believed That Matt James Had Manipulated Her
According to sources, Rachael was reportedly devastated by the situation and felt “manipulated” by Matt. However, on April 24, the two were pictured together again in California. Matt did not state if he and Rachael are officially “back together” in his most recent interview, but he did clarify that they are not seeing anyone else. He also failed to update Rachael’s progress in “putting in the effort” that she promised.
Do Matt James And Rachael Truly Love Each Other?
On The Bachelor, Matt and Rachael had a deep love. However, as things began to fall apart, it became clear that their love was not as deep as they had thought.
On his season of The Bachelor, leading man Matt James chose Rachael Kirkconnell, but did he ever love her? Their bond seemed to grow stronger as the season progressed, and it became apparent that she was the frontrunner. Matt and Rachael were seen leaving Nemacolin Woodlands Resort as a couple, but they were not yet engaged. After some racism controversy surfaced on social media shortly after the season ended, the pair broke up.
As viewers watched Rachael battle for Matt’s heart, pictures of her at an antebellum-themed party circulated in the media. When the couple returned to the real world, they were met with many challenges to overcome. When Matt saw the photos, he was devastated and ended his relationship with Rachael. Despite how solid their bond seemed to be, it was insufficient to withstand the challenges.
Fans began to wonder if Matt loved Rachael as their love story unraveled. When After The Final Rose first aired, it was revealed that the pair had broken up due to Rachael’s racism scandal. Matt ended the relationship because he was disturbed by the situation. When filming the special, he was apprehensive about looking at or speaking to his ex. Rachael extolled their sincere love and expressed her belief that it was real and solid. Matt did not reciprocate the feelings. Despite the pain of the split, he was adamant about not forgiving Rachael’s history. Thus leading some to wonder if there was any love at all.
Fans Are Suspicious That Matt Is In Love With Rachael As Earlier He Described He Cant Be With Rachael
When the show was on the air, viewers saw Matt tell Rachael that he was in love with her. According to viewers, Rachael appears to be the only contestant with whom he shares this emotion. Fans are suspicious of Matt’s claims to be in love with Rachael because the show does not reveal what made him realize he was in love. Some contestants have several intense and emotional discussions, but Rachael does not. This leads fans to conclude that such a discussion did not occur, and thus no one knows what made Matt realize he was really in love with Rachael.
Matt and Rachael were recently spotted together in New York City. But it wasn’t the kind of comeback anyone might have hoped for after their breakup. Since the filming of After The Final Rose, the pair have spoken every day. Things appeared to be going well for a while. Matt was also spotted talking to another woman during their reunion and making arrangements to visit her soon as Rachael left. This not only shattered Rachael’s confidence but also made fans wonder if his feelings for her were real.
Although the cameras made it seem that Matt was head over heels in love with Rachael, there was no denying that she was. She was certain of her feelings for The Bachelor star, but he didn’t reciprocate in the same way. Matt claimed to love Rachael, but his behavior made fans believe otherwise. Matt James may or may not have ever really loved Rachael Kirkconnell with all that has happened.
