MATT James has hinted he is engaged, the morning after The Bachelor fans saw one of the most shocking episodes of the franchise.
The reality star, who has been looking for love on the ABC series, sent home two girls on Monday amid claims of bullying an toxic behaviour.
But it was a slip of the tongue at the end of his Good Morning America interview on Tuesday that had fans talking, as he seemingly confirmed he is engaged.
"We’ll see you back here with your fiancée in a couple of weeks,” anchor T.J. Holmes said to the 29-year-old at the end of the interview.
Matt replied: "I’m looking forward to that," to which T.J's co-star Robin Roberts crowed: "He didn't deny it!"
The Bachelor star also had fans talking as he has been rocking a long beard in recent weeks, with one fan jokingly commenting: "By the look of Matt James’ beard right now there is absolutely no way he ends his season engaged."
Bachelor villain Victoria Larson was sent home by Matt on Monday's episode after other women accused Victoria of “bullying” them.
Matt discussed the moment during his GMA interview, telling T.J: "When you break it down, any type of name-calling [is not OK].
"I think people try and pass it off as playing around but it’s really not playing around to the people on the receiving end of it. When that was made aware to me, I had to act on it."
Last week, fans saw hopeful Katie Thurston approach Matt and inform him of “bullying” going on with the group, including the rumor started by Anna Redman that Brittany Galvin is an escort.
When these topics were brought up, the reality leading man said his top priority is to keep the women safe, and he could no longer do that with Anna in the house.
A tearful Anna was sent home in a waiting SUV, and Victoria – who has been the center of drama all season long – was brought up next to Matt for being “mean”, and Matt made it clear that it’s “not acceptable” to make anyone in the house feel “uncomfortable” with name calling.
When the former pageant girl responded that the comment was taken out of context, Matt asked when a good context would be to call another woman a “hoe.”
After she didn’t have an answer, the pair parted ways as Matt said he had some “thinking to do” before the rose ceremony, before he sent her home.
