The Bachelor: Matt: Week 7: The One Where Half of Them Go Home
So, the way we left it last week, Heather had just arrived in her rented minivan and strutted right in to interrupt Matt and Pieper.
Matt laughs at Heather and her arrival, and tells Pieper he needs a minute. Matt welcomes her and gives her another hug.
Some of the women know who Heather is, and some do not. Abigail knows all about who she is.
Heather tells Matt that Hannah Brown thought that Matt would be a good match for Heather. Heather evidently went to Hannah's house and Hannah told Matt all about Matt and blah, blah, blah. Why this whole conversation didn't happen before Matt started taping seems suspect. Extremely fishy.
Matt says Hannah knows him well, what she has to say means a lot to him, but he needs to think about it.
Heather wanders into the room where the other women are. They start grilling her asking her what she is doing there. Jessenia asks if she's ready to be engaged in two weeks. Chelsea asks if she was on another season. When Heather says she was, Jessenia gives her what for considering she had her chance. Someone accuses her of Bachelor hopping. Pieper has been very upset about being interrupted by a new woman. She lets Heather have it because they have been there six weeks and have feelings for Matt.
Honestly, all the women show their ugly sides. Not that I blame them, but still. Rachael goes on about if he picks Heather, then, his feelings toward her (Rachael)... What she says doesn't make a lot of sense, but basically, she doubts his sincerity towards her if he lets Heather in.
Chris Harrison tracks Matt down to check in. Matt says he is shook up.
Chris says it must be flattering because it's someone recommended by someone he respects. Matt says that yes, Hannah has dated his best friend and knows him. Everything Hannah has said about Heather seems to check his list. (So, evidently, Hannah has talked to Matt about her before. Why haven't they met yet?
Matt comes back in the room with Heather who is alone since everyone is ready to murder her. Matt thanks her for being bold and following her heart to get there. Matt again brings up how important Hannah's opinion is to him. It's hard for him, but given how deep they are in the process, he doesn't know how it could work with her. Heather wants him to know how serious she is about being there. Matt respects that, but he's falling in love with women who are already here. Matt tells her time isn't on their side, and his heart is pulling him back to the room where all the other women are.
Matt walks Heather past all the other women there and out to her minivan.
When he returns, he assures the women that no one else will join the journey that is not on the couch. He was caught off guard, and Matt apologizes for taking time away from them. He asks Pieper to go finish their conversation.
Abigail is whining again about not knowing where she stands when Chris comes in to ring the glass.
It's rose ceremony time. The only ones with roses from dates are Pieper and Michelle. (Katie went home on her date, so no rose.) There are six roses to be handed out.
- Serena P.
She talks about the sacrifices that her mom made for her family. For Bri to quit her job was more like a dream than a sacrifice. Matt has heard all he needs to hear from Bri. He knows she's there for him.
