The Bachelor star Matt James has addressed the fact he was recently caught listening to a Season 25 bachelorette's Spotify playlist, which has led many viewers to believe Matt must have picked her as his winner at the season's final Rose Ceremony.
According to Matt's public Spotify history, he recently listened to and "liked" a playlist curated by Rachael Kirkconnell, Vulturereported recently.
Given Matt's Spotify activity may be an indication Rachael was his winner and the 24-year-old bachelorette just emerged as a frontrunner on Monday night's episode of The Bachelor, Entertainment Tonight put Matt on the spot during an interview this week.
"Some eagle-eyed fans have noticed that you seem to be listening to Rachael's Spotify playlist. What does this mean? Are you and Rachael together right now?" ET's Lauren Zima playfully asked Matt with eager, wide eyes.
Although The Bachelor viewers may be hoping for a spoiler, Matt refused to give anything away about the ending of his season.
"There's a lot of music that I've taken from a bunch of women on the show. I've listened to [Kit Keenan]'s playlist, I've listened to [Michelle Young]'s playlist," Matt responded.
Matt enjoyed one-on-one dates with both Kit and Michelle on The Bachelor and seemed smitten with them as well.
"I think that people are very eager to find any tea," Matt acknowledged, "and you know, lucky for me, I had a very good group of women and I've taken a lot of what I've learned from them and applied it to my life."
Matt even pointed out the shirt he was wearing for his video interview was inspired by Kit's fashion given she's the daughter of fashion designer Cynthia Rowley.
AndThe Bachelorette's Season 11 star Kaitlyn Bristowe memorably posted a public Snapchat photo that showed her snuggling in bed with her season's winner, Shawn Booth, several weeks before the finale aired on ABC.
