The Bachelor’s Summary: Did Matt Make The Right Choice in the Season 25 Finale?

Matt James didn’t pick Katie Thurston or Michelle Young as his all-time boo for The Bachelor, but that doesn’t stop ABC from making its own commitment.

Both women will get their own season of The Bachelorette, there was Emmanuel Acho announced on Monday in The Bachelor: After The Final Rose. Thurston will take the lead in season 17 this summer, while Young will do the honors this fall in season 18.

Bachelor Nation knows Thurston, 29, as the brave and outspoken contestant on 11th Platz, who showed up on the first day with the vibrator she said kept her company up during quarantine. Despite her initial chemistry and laughter, Thurston was eventually relegated to the friend zone. Matt granted her a single one-on-one interview so he could tell her he didn’t feel passionate about her. Thurston is from the US state Washington and works in bank marketing. She also attracted attention and admirers as she fought bullying around the house among the other women. She even confided in Matt so he could put an end to the bullying too.

Young, 27, is an elementary school teacher from Minnesota. Though Young arrived late, he quickly bonded with Matt and the two, who shared through shared values ​​and previous experiences as college athletes. When Matt Young’s parents, LaVonne and Ephraim, met him, they hugged him and the four of them even played basketball. And Matt often made Young his first choice at the start of countless rose ceremonies.

But Matt clearly had stronger feelings for Rachael Kirkconnell, the 24-year-old Georgia graphic designer whose racially insensitive past caught up with her than pictures of her at an antebellum show. Party 2018 reinforced negative and offensive images from the pre-Civil War South.

Meanwhile, Bachelor host Chris Harrison landed in hot water when he defended Rachael during an extra interview with Rachel Lindsay – the franchise’s first black lead. Harrison didn’t just talk about Lindsay in the February interview to decipher the culture of abandonment he thought was Rachael.

Harrison’s actions and choice of words quickly met with criticism and he apologized on social media and eventually took one self-imposed Leave of absence to work on the way he « perpetuated racism ». Despite appearing as a presenter on season 25, which was filmed prior to the controversy, Harrison bowed from the episode of After the Final Rose. At the time, Acho, a former NFL linebacker and Fox Sports analyst, was hosting in his place. ABC Entertainment and Warner Horizon announced that Harrison will not host season 17 of The Bachelorette. Instead, former alumni Tayshia Adams and Kaitlyn Bristowe will take over in his place.
