Matty sets the record straight ‘I’M THE REAL DEAL!’
This season of The Bachelor has been plagued by wild rumours – or are they? Matty sorts the real from the fake…
The proposal at the finale, did it happen? Apparently I was rejected! A proposal definitely entered my mind, but there was no proposal at all. Had you met Laura before the show?
We crossed paths. She said something to my friend in the sauna at [Sydney’s] Icebergs, but details weren’t exchanged and we didn’t contact each other. Did you like Laura because she looked like Georgia Love? I don’t see it. Both have got beautiful brown hair, but that’s about it. If you had to pick a look-alike, I think Cobie has more similarities. You were caught wearing an earpiece. Were the producers feeding you lines? I would wear an earpiece strictly at the rose ceremony to have contact with the director in case of any technical issues. You’ve been spotted with our new Bachelorette Sophie Monk recently, and apparently you were ‘getting flirty’… We caught up. I thought it would be a nice opportunity to wish her well and exchange stories. [As for double dates after her season finishes], it would be nice. Did you go on the show for fame?
No, it was about my second chance at finding love. I was back at work two weeks after filming. And even now I find it kind of awkward getting photos and doing media!
Matty insists the overnight date with Elora Murger didn’t continue behind closed doors Of the rumour he put Laura’s drawing out for council clean-up, the star claims, ‘It’s not true!’ ‘People often ask me if it’s scripted and I’m so strongly wanting to tell people that it is real,’ he insists
