Bri is a 24-year-old communications manager from Owatonna, MN.
Bri, whom ABC says is "really something special," enjoyed the very first one-on-one date of the season with Matt. The pair definitely hit it off but then Bri had to sit back and watch Matt develop strong connections with other women.

The Bachelor bachelorette didn't have your typical upbringing
Bri's mother is Persian and white-passing, and her father is Black. Her mother got pregnant at age 13, and Bri's parents separated before she was born.
Bri was therefore raised by a single mom and her grandmother, and she grew up feeling like she was her mother's priority and best friend.
Bri said the women in her life made many sacrifices to give her the best shot at a successful future.
Bri therefore says she has always outworked everyone around her, knowing nothing in life is promised or guaranteed.
Bri is very proud of her achievements
Bri worked for a high-profile social media company prior to her The Bachelor appearance. Given her professional life is intact, Bri says she's now ready to focus on her personal life and find the guy of her dreams.
The Bachelor host Chris Harrison recently said of Bri's job, "She works for a tech company. I'm not allowed to say what tech company and I don't want to put her job in jeopardy, but it is a big one -- so much so, that she almost wasn't on the show because she obviously didn't want to give up this amazing job."
Bri, however, did have to give up her job to go on The Bachelor
Bri had to resign from her position at the social-media company to compete for Matt's heart on The Bachelor's 25th season.
Bri made her search for love -- hopefully with Matt -- a priority, but she said it was really hard to leave the position, which was "a dream" for her and not just a job.
Bri hoped her relationship with Matt would make her sacrifice worth it.
Sarah revealed to Entertainment Tonight that Bri and Rachael Kirkconnell attempted to console her when she felt attacked by the other girls and decided to quit The Bachelor, although the sweet moment wasn't shown on television.
"A scene that didn't make it, Rachael and Bri are so sweet and they came to comfort me," Sarah shared.
"I did make good friends and there were moments where I was thinking, 'These are friendships that I can have moving forward.' So I think that's a positive, too."
Sarah therefore told ET that she hopes Matt ended up choosing Bri or Rachael in the end.
"They were the first to comfort me and they were absolute sweethearts," Sarah recalled.
"I can imagine them being in the Top 4 just because they are really sweet and smart girls, from what I saw, and that is the kind of person Matt should end up with."
Bri appears to have gone on The Bachelor for the right reasons
It doesn't seem like Bri is after a career as a social-media influencer.
Bri only joined Instagram in late November 2017, and over the last three years or so, she has only posted around 30 times.
Most of Bri's photos are with family or feature her on vacation or at festivals with friends.
