It seems that Abigail Heringer’s feelings for Matt James go much deeper than seen on the show. She gets extremely candid on the Women Tell All special. Abigail discusses the reception she got from the D/deaf community as the first deaf contestant on the show.
(Note: Abigail refers to herself as lowercase deaf.)
In a new clip from ABC, the Oregon native talks about her first meeting with Matt James.
Abigail Heringer Gets Real at Women Tell All
Abigail Heringer gets a coveted spot on the couch at the Women Tell All special. She was sent home during Episode 7. Matt James bluntly told her that his feelings for some of the other women were stronger.
Coincidentally – or not? – her exit came a few episodes after she told him her children would likely be born deaf. Abigail and her sister were born deaf but later fitted for cochlear implants. She doesn’t know sign language, nor does she consider herself part of the Deaf community.
While Matt James didn’t develop strong feelings for Abigail, she felt something for him immediately. During the Tell All, she gets candid about the depth of her feelings.
Abigail says it was almost love at first sight for her, according to Us Weekly. In fact, it was the “closest” she’s ever come to that feeling. Abigail also confessed that prior to going on The Bachelor, she “didn’t believe” in love at first sight.
