‘The Bachelor’: Are Matt James & Rachael Kirkconnell Secretly Dating Again?

The Bachelor stars, Matt James and Rachael Kirkconnell seem to be pulling a Clare Crawley and Dale Moss as they have been seen together again in New York.

Matt and his final rose winner, Rachael broke up between filming The Bachelor and the After the Final Rose special due to the racism controversies surrounding Rachael. Now, professional television spoiler and reality TV blogger, Reality Steve has reported that Matt and Rachael may not be as donezo as they appeared.

‘The Bachelor’: Are Matt James & Rachael Kirkconnell Secretly Dating Again?

Reality Steve tweeted: “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.”

A photo was also provided by popular blind items Instagram account Deuxmoi, claiming to be of Matt and Rachael walking across the street together in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. It is only a photo of the two from the back, though, so we have to take the anonymous photographer’s word for it.

After Deuxmoi’s post and Steve’s tweet, speculating on Matt and Rachael’s relationship status went viral, ‘a source’ came out to tell People Magazine so say, “They are not together. He supports her as a friend. He is not looking for a relationship.”

So, though Reality Steve has a very good track record of reporting correctly (it’s part awe-inspiring, part creepy). I guess it has become your basic blogger said/ source said thing.

If the two reality stars are back together, or on the road to reconciliation, it will be a tough slog. Their relationship will be dissected at every turn. With Matt never a big fan of the spotlight from the beginning- the Bachelor gig sort of fell in his lap, it seems he would shy away from jumping back into the relationship fans would see as public domain.

So, as much as it may not be fair, it seems very unlikely that Matt and Rachael would ever recover from their break-up or give such a scrutinized relationship a second chance.
