Rachael hasn't received much screentime after Night 1, when she admitted she was "infatuated" with Matt right off the bat.
"The fact that he opened [the cocktail party] up with a prayer, like, struck a nerve for me. I didn't expect to feel like this so soon," Rachael gushed. "He's pretty much everything I expected him to be and more."
Rachael told Matt that she struggled to be vulnerable but she would try to do just that for him, and in the latest episode, Matt told the bachelorette how he really liked how their relationship was progressing.
Matt found Rachael absolutely beautiful at first sight and later said she had blown him away, so it's possible Rachael could come from behind and steal Matt's heart away from the other women.
Since Matt found Rachael to be "articulate, sexy and open," could she turn out to be The One for him?
Until viewers can watch more of Rachael and Matt's love story unfold on the show, let's learn a little bit about The Bachelor bachelorette right now.

The brunette beauty says she is looking for a once-in-a-lifetime love
Rachael claims to be a hopeless romantic to her core.
Rachael has apparently never been in love before, just like Matt, but she believes Matt could be the guy to change that.
Rachael says she is hoping her love story will be something huge and life altering.
Rachael appears to be a well-traveled social butterfly
According to Rachael's social-media account, she has traveled quite a bit for a 24 year old.
Dubbed a "southern sweetheart" by ABC, Rachael has visited Saint John in the U.S. Virgin Islands and also touched down in many U.S. states with her friends -- including Florida, New York, California, Chicago, Louisiana, Las Vegas, North Carolina, and Alabama.
The Bachelor bachelorette attempts to live big with no regrets
Nothing makes Rachael happier than a good movie, good wine and charcuterie boards.

Chris Harrison teases fans shouldn't judge a book by its cover with Rachael
When announcing Matt's cast of bachelorettes, The Bachelor host Chris Harrison revealed, "Rachael is just a down-to-earth southern girl, really personable and just as sweet as cotton candy."
"But also very competitive," Chris added.
"Don't let that southern side fool ya! Again, I go back to [Hannah Brown] and [Hannah Ann Sluss] and all of our Hannahs. She has that sweet southern charm, but trust me, they can take care of their own."
Rachael has already been the subject of nasty online allegations
A TikTok user named Maddy Bierster posted a video clip of Rachael and Matt talking on Night 1 at the cocktail party on Reddit and wrote over the image, "Girlieeee, remember when you bullied me in high school for liking black guys???"
Maddy also captioned her post on TikTok, "BECAUSE I REMEMBER."
Many fans reacted with shock and concern for Matt since The Bachelor star seemed to really like Rachael on the first night and she could go far this season.
Reality Steve spoiler blogger Steve Carbone shared his thoughts on the controversy when he tweeted January 4, "Think it's all fun and games and IG shilling being a contestant on this show? Not necessarily when anyone from your past can throw out accusations and you won't be able to defend yourself for a while."
Maddy later insisted in videos on her TikTok she'd never lie about anything so serious and Rachael and her friend group in high school had "ridiculed" her for dating a boy of a different race. She suggested Rachael is hypocritical and needs to be held accountable for her actions.
Maddy also claimed she never received an apology from Rachael and would like one.
Rachael apparently has a love for animals and got a puppy she named Winnie in 2017.
In November 2017, Rachael shared multiple photos with her brown and black furbaby, who appears to be a dachshund mix.
Rachael captioned the slideshow, "If you know me you know this is my dream. I can't wait to spoil you my little baby Winnie, momma loves you way too much already."
The graphic designer says she went on the show for the right reasons
Rachael insists Matt is the reason why she decided to apply for The Bachelor and appear on the show for its 2021 season.
The bachelorette liked the idea of both Matt and herself appearing on the reality show for the first time given Matt had never competed onThe Bachelorette prior to being named The Bachelor star for Season 25.
Rachael predicted the pair would have a lot of fun together on the show as newbies.
