Matty J picked Laura on last night’s Bachelor finale, but had they actually met before they arrived at the mansion?
One of the biggest rumours floating around this season was the idea that Matty and Laura knew each other before the show even started.
Well it turns out it was true – sort of. They were once in the same location as each other, but they didn’t ever actually speak.
“We didn’t realise it until our first date or second date we were talking about Sydney, and we kind of realised that we’d bumped into each other once before,” Matty explained to Fox FM’s Fifi, Dave, Fev & Byron.
“We never spoke to each other,” Laura added. “I live very close to Bondi and Matty’s in Bondi, and I was just at the sauna at Icebergs and I was like ‘that’s the guy from The Bachelor’ but didn’t say anything to him, I was way too shy. And never spoke, never exchanged anything. The very first time we ever had a conversation was on the red carpet.”
