It appears as thought Matt James and his winner Rachael Kirkconnell are back together following their post-Bachelor breakup. The former couple, who parted ways after Rachael’s past racist behavior was exposed on social media, was seen walking around Williamsburg together in unverified photos posted by a follower of Instagram account @DuexMoi.
Meanwhile, Reality Steve hopped on Twitter to claim that Matt and Rachael fully aren’t over, writing “It’s been a while but here’s some news: Matt and Rachael? Yeah, they’re not over. They’re currently in New York together. FYI.”

As a reminder, Matt broke things off with Rachael after photos of her attending a racist antebellum-themed plantation party in 2018 surfaced online. They came face-to-face for the first time since their split on “After the Final Rose” with Emmanuel Acho, where Matt made it clear he couldn’t move forward in the relationship and that “If you don’t understand that something like that is problematic in 2018, there’s a lot of me that you won’t understand. It’s as simple as that.”
Matt also told Rachael that “The most disappointing thing for me was having to explain to you why what I saw was problematic and why I was so upset.” He added that when he questioned the relationship, “It was in the context of you not fully understanding my Blackness and what it means to be a Black man in America, and what it would mean for our kids when I saw those things that were floating around the internet.”

During the sit-down, Rachael made it clear she still has strong feelings for Matt, saying she doesn’t “see anyone else out there for me.” Meanwhile, Matt said “the feelings that I had for you don’t go away overnight,” but explained “the work and the reconciliation that needs to be done is work I can’t do for you.”
As of now, neither Matt nor Rachael have commented on claims that they’re back together.
