"When you pull up to the rental car place and they ask if you want a mini van [sic] the answer is always yes," Heather captioned a Monday Instagram photo of herself standing outside the hotel and next to her minivan in the white dress she wore to meet Matt.
On Tuesday, Heather elaborated on her decision to have a less-than-glamorous entrance on her Instagram Stories.
"So, I just have to say, I legitimately pulled up to the rental car place and I don't know if they didn't have any other cars but they're just like, 'So, is a minivan OK?'" Heather recalled, according toUs Weekly.
"And of course I didn't think twice and I was like, 'Yeah, I'd love a minivan.' I didn't realize until later that was a weird thing."
Heather reportedly added the caption, "Who knew??" to her Instagram Story-post.
"If you're going to let a new girl come in or you're going to give a new girl a rose over some of us who have been here this long, then you better marry that girl -- because the rest of us are going to be pissed," Chelsea Vaughn said in a confessional.
"If she gets a rose tonight," Serena Pitt said of Heather, "I am going to be rageful!"
"[But] I had no relationship with her," Matt clarified on the magazine's "Here for the Right Reasons" podcast earlier this month.
"But she does have a relationship with one of my good friends Hannah Brown. I was just as shocked to see her as everyone else was when she arrives, and I think it makes for a very interesting conversation."
Matt said he could understand why new arrivals would be "frustrating" for the original bachelorettes, who had already invested weeks into the dating process.
"[But] regardless of when you came or didn't come, you're here, and it doesn't matter," Matt said. "To me what matters is our conversations, our connections, and if I could see a future with you."
Matt insisted bullying, rumors and gossip are "not going to be tolerated" on his season, and he already made that apparent by eliminating "mean girls" Victoria Larson and Anna Redman, who were shown attacking the five women who showed up late after the third Rose Ceremony.
The Bachelor star hoped all the women could find a way to peacefully coexist since none of his bachelorettes "wield that authority to send somebody home."
"So, they just got to deal with it," Matt noted of the twists and turns.
"And you don't want to make that environment difficult for other people to live in. Because then I'm going to hear about it. And then I'm gonna have to ask you to go home."
A The Bachelor preview for the next episode shows Heather being attacked by the other women and breaking down into tears.
