Ahead of the premiere episode earlier this month, which featured the show’s first Black lead, 29-year-old real estate broker Matt, giving his first-impression rose to Abigail Heringer, the series’ first deaf contestant, well-known Bachelor and Bachelorette blogger Steve Carbone revealed not only the series’ final four, but also Matt’s reported winner.
In a report shared on Reality Steve, a number of key details regarding the episodes were disclosed, including the naming of the apparent show villain, Victoria Larson, and the show’s resident sex enthusiast, Katie Thurston.
Steve also told readers that Heather Martin, who finished in sixth place during Colton Underwood’s season, showed up at some point but was promptly sent home, and that Brittany Galvin was accused by her castmates of being an alleged “sugar baby.”
Brittany, along with Catalina Morales, Kim Li, Michelle Young, and Ryan Clator, were added to the show after the second rose ceremony.
Below are Matt’s final 4 picks — aka the women believed to have gotten hometown dates with Matt:
1. Serena Pitt, 22, a publicist from Toronto, Ontario, Canada.
2. Rachael Kirkconnell, 24, a graphic designer from Cumming, Georgia.
3. Michelle Young, 27, an elementary school teacher from Minneapolis, Minnesota.
4. Bri Springs, 24, a communications manager from San Francisco, California.
According to Reality Steve, the final four definitely included Serena P., Rachael, and Michelle, and likely also included Bri, although that information has not yet been confirmed.
As for the final two, Steve was told those honors go to Michelle and Rachael, the latter of whom took home the final rose.
“Rachael wins,” the report stated.
According to the blogger, Rachel’s friends and family have been telling everyone in their small town of Cumming that she won. However, as he also pointed out, he heard the same thing about Madison Prewett during Peter Weber‘s season of The Bachelor last year, and as fans now know, it was actually Hannah Sluss who received his final rose.
While Steve acknowledged he is not 100 percent sold on Rachael being the winner, he said he is positive that Serena P. and Michelle were not the final women standing.
The Bachelor season 25 airs Mondays at 8/7c on ABC.
