With Matt James’ Bachelor season in full swing, fans are curious to know The Bachelor 2021 spoilers about Rachael Kirkconnell and how far she makes it on the current season.
Rachael is one of 32 contestants who met Matt, a 29-year-old real estate agent from Raleigh, North Carolina, on the Monday, January 4, premiere of The Bachelor season 25. Matt, who is the best friend and roommate of Bachelorette alum Tyler Cameron, was announced as the season 25 Bachelor in June 2020. Unlike the previous Bachelors, Matt is the first Bachelor since Brad Womack in 2011 to not be a former Bachelorette contestant. (Though he was cast for Clare Crawley’s season of The Bachelorette in 2020, he never made it on the show, as he was chosen as the Bachelor soon after.)
Matt is also the first Black Bachelor in the franchise’s 15-year-plus history. Overall, he’s the third Black lead after season 13 Bachelorette Rachel Lindsay and season 16 Bachelorette Tayshia Adams. “It’s an honor,” Matt told Good Morning America in June 2020 after he was cast. “I’m just going to lean into myself and how my mom raised me and hopefully when people invite me into their homes on Monday night they’re going to see that I’m not much different from them and they see that diverse love stories are beautiful.”
As for if Matt’s Bachelor 2021 winner has been revealed, Reality Steve can confirm that she has. (Read on to find out if Rachael is Matt’s winner.) Reality Steve revealed Matt’s winner prior to the premiere of his Bachelor season in January 2021. According to a source for OK! magazine, producers were “livid” that the end was leaked. “Everyone on the show has been reminded that they signed non-disclosure-agreements,” the source said. “The show’s PR department strategically leaks information and teases each season to get publicity and viewers excited. However, the number of unauthorized leaks has gotten out of control. To have the winner leaked before the first episode even airs is terrible. Producers are livid,” the source adds.
So what’s what we know about Matt. But what about Rachael? Read on for The Bachelor 2021 spoilers we know about Rachael Kirkconnell. (Obvi, spoilers ahead.)
Who is Rachael?
Rachael is a 24-year-old from Cumming, Georgia.

Rachael is hoping that her love story will be something huge and life altering.”
Her bio continues, “She wants to look back on her life when she’s old and feel like she has made the absolute most out of every single day. Nothing makes her happier than a good movie, good wine and charcuterie boards. Rachael needs a man who will make every day with her something to tell their future children about and says, “At the end of the day, love is what makes your life more special than others. Life can be hard and really difficult and dark at times, but if you have someone by your side that loves you more than they love themselves, that makes it all worth it in the end.”
