Rudi Gutierrez Reveals She Isn’t Dating Matt Ranaudo After ‘The Bachelor: Listen to Your Heart’
Bachelor Nation viewers fell for Rudi Gutierrez and Matt Ranaudo’s onstage chemistry during Listen to Your Heart. The couple rose to the occasion during every performance and solidified their place as fan-favorites when they sang Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper’s “Shallow.” Then in a turn of events, Matt and Rudi chose to self-eliminate when their spark couldn’t be translated into real life. Even so, the couple teased there was more “Mudi” content after the grand finale. But recently, Rudi revealed she isn’t dating Matt right now.

Rudi and Matt connected throughout the first few episodes of The Bachelor: Listen to Your Heart. But the couple’s presence onstage always seemed to overshadow the overall relationship.
In the finale, Rudi and Matt went on an overnight date together as the cast drove to Nashville. However, they didn’t come out the other end stronger. Rather, it was clear Rudi had feelings for her partner. But Matt wasn’t ready for a commitment. So the music artists decided to go their separate ways and leave the show.
