Update: April 6, 2021
We’ve got some bad news for any Matt James/Heather Martin shippers out there. There was a rumor floating around that they might be dating post-Bachelor. But it turns out Matt is still single following his breakup with Rachael Kirkconnell, according to Heather herself.
“I’m not dating Matt,” she clarified during an episode of The Ben and Ashley I Almost Famous Podcast this week. “I think he has a lot going on in his life. You know, he’s going through a ton. I can’t even imagine…so many different aspects of the show, just everything. So, I think he has a lot going on right now. So, no, I’m not dating Matt.”
Back on March 16, Spoiler King Reality Steve also confirmed this rumor was really just a rumor: “And for those asking, no, Matt is not dating Heather Martin,” he wrote in a blog post.
Welp, it was a fun theory while it lasted!

So…why do people think she and Matt are dating? First, there’s the fact that Heather was mysteriously cut from the “Women Tell All.” Like, there is legit proof she was there:

Fans are speculating that the reason Heather was cut is because she and Matt started dating after the episode. But obviously, we need more than just that to go on. Fear not, there’s more evidence:
This TikTok from @morganptalks made its way to Bachelor Reddit, and it notes that Matt and Heather both happened to use location tags for San Clemente, California. A pretty big coincidence considering Matt lives in New York City:

On top of that, Instagram account @bachelornation.scoop noticed that Matt shouted out “Robe SZN” in an Instagram post AND that Heather was wearing a robe in a recent photo. A reach, sure, but I, for one, live for a reach:
Matt and Heather haven’t spoken about these rumors, but Heather did drop a video of herself dramatically turning around in response to the internet blowing up over her being edited out of the “Women Tell All,” so:
