Fans who have followed Matt’s journey know his mom is his everything. He even posted a Happy Father’s Day message to her this past June. And, Matt admits his father not being around and seeing his parents failed marriage holds him back from commitment.
The previews indicate Matt will finally face his father whom he believes was never there for him. Their conversation could become very heated. Matt tells him, “When I needed you, you weren’t there.” His dad said, “Do you know what I went through with your mom?” Matt fires back telling him not to make excuses. His dad reminds him nobody is perfect.
Following his deep conversation with his father, Matt breaks down. Reality Steve said he believes this is the part where Matt sits on the curb and Chris Harrison asks him if he’s okay. In a confessional Matt says doesn’t want to make the same mistakes that tore his family apart.
