Ah yes, it's that time of year to start predicting who will be in the top 4 of this season of The Bachelor. After 4 weeks, I've started to form some ideas about who Matt should end up with, based on everything we've seen these past weeks. Some of the girls are the best, like Katie and Abigail who stay out of drama, or stick up for other girls. Some are the worst, like Victoria and Anna who love to bully other contestants and spread fake and dangerous lies about them. (Also: has anyone checked on Victoria's eyes lol?).
This season has been a whirlwind, and we're only 4 episodes in! Here's my top 4 picks for Matt James.
Michelle is one of the newcomers in the most recent episode, and she is such a gem. She seems so genuine and sweet, and they both have great chemistry together. Her and Matt talked about her teaching, especially during the time of the Black Lives Matter movement, and how she's worried for her students health during this time. She also talked about how she loves that Matt is charitable, and wants to make the world a better place; and that is why she applied to be on the show.
These two seem to have a great connection and a lot of shared values, and I think that she will definitely make it to the top 4.
Abigail was the first of the season to get a rose from Matt, which is always a good indicator of what to expect from Matt this season. Sadly, we haven't been seeing much from Abigail since she mostly stays out of drama, which is about 85% of the season so far.
Abigail is also the first deaf contestant ever, which is so amazing that the bachelor is finally becoming more inclusive and diverse this season. From the little that we've seen of her and Matt; they both seem to be really into each other and have good conversations.
I think once this drama settles down, Abigail will get more screen time and time with Matt, which will land her in the top 4!
I think Chelsea has a very good chance based on what we've seen from her. She also hasn't had a lot of screen time, but when she does she always shines. Her story this week about cutting off her hair was so powerful and touching because she had such a connection to her hair that when she cut it, she felt free from it.
We haven't seen too much of her, but I always love when she gets screen time and I think she has a good chance getting into the top 4!
In week 3, Matt and Serena went on a cute horse and picnic date where they seemed to have a great connection. My favorite was how she called him a "weird kid" for having a turtle when he was younger. Then later on in the date, he has turtle swim trunks; are we shocked lol?
Anyways, Matt and Serena seem to be very cute, and they both admitted that they have feelings for each other and want to see their relationship progress. Based on how committed they are to that, just in week 3 alone; I think she has a very good chance of being in the top 4.
Overall, these are my top 4 picks for Matt James. He might pick one, or all, or none of these girls; but we'll just have to keep watching to find out!
