Matt James and Rachael Kirkconnell are back together after initial split
James and Kirkconnell are back on after a messy post-season of The Bachelor. After the season had concluded, and before filming of The Bachelor: After the Final Rose, James discovered Kirkconnell’s past remarks and photos on social media that were deemed racist by many. James explained on the finale that he couldn’t be with her due to her lack of understanding why her posts were wrong.
But, the two appeared to have to come to a mutual understanding, as they are back together. Now, they’re chatting about making the relationship even more serious, according to a recent report.

The couple, which has been vacationing together in recent months, is reportedly in talks to move in together, per E! News. James is based in New York City, while Kirkconnell is from outside of Atlanta, Georgia.
“Matt and Rachael are in a really good place right now and are getting serious,” a source told the outlet. “They are inseparable and talk all day, every day. They have been making many plans to see each other so not a huge chunk of time passes before their next visit.”
The source continued: “They have discussed Rachael moving to New York City to be closer to Matt and she has always loved the city, so it would work out well.”
“They are both taking it slow, but have talked about moving in together,” the source revealed. “It is an option they are considering, but waiting to see how the next couple of months progress.”
The pair met each other on ‘The Bachelor’ and she was the final pick
Kirkconnell and James’ connection grew while on The Bachelor at the Nemacolin Resort in Pennsylvania. From the first episode, Kirkconnell was interested in James through his connection with his religion, which was apparent in him asking everyone to listen to him pray.
James flowered Kirkconnell with attention in several instances, and even chose her for a shopping date in which she got to choose luxurious designer items to keep. After a sky diving date, Kirkconnell suffered from an accident from a bad landing. This served as a catalyst for James, proving how much he deeply cared for Kirkconnell. He chose her in the end, despite viewers already knowing about Kirkconnell’s social media past.
