It’s been quite a bumpy ride for Matt James so far, as he’s had to deal with girls bullying one another — ahem, Victoria Larson — five new ladies joining the group and trying to find his wife on national television.
Things are about to get even crazier, though. On the Monday, February 8, episode of The Bachelor, Heather Martin — who appeared on Colton Underwood’s season — crashes the party and tries to win over the 29-year-old leading man.
Still, Martin barges into the resort and finds James, who looks shocked by her arrival.
“I feel like I’m in a dream right now,” he says.
Naturally, the ladies don’t appreciate Martin coming on the show so late in the game. “You already had your f**king shot at a Bachelor, like, go home,” one women says in the clip.
However, it seems like the blonde babe wants to stick things out and see if James is the perfect mate for her. “This is like an impossible situation, still, like, I do feel like Matt’s worth it,” she says.
So, who is Martin? Scroll through the gallery below to learn five things about the contestant.
She's Friends With Hannah Brown
Martin and Hannah Brown, 26, became friends on The Bachelor and have remained close since. It’s unclear how well Martin and James know each other, but Brown most likely introduced them since she quarantined with James and Tyler Cameron amid the pandemic in 2020.
Colton Underwood Was Her First Kiss
Martin revealed she had “never been kissed” during her time on the reality show. However, she ended up giving Underwood a smooch while vying for his heart.
“I couldn’t have asked for a better [first kiss]. … It was super interesting that people didn’t believe me,” she said in March 2019. “I’m like, ‘I don’t really know how to defend myself in this, but I don’t know why I would lie about something like that.’ It’s not something that would help me in any way in my opinion. I don’t think it’s going to get me anywhere.”
She also revealed she is a virgin — but that may have changed in the past few years.
She Has A Real Job
According to her LinkedIn profile, Martin is an Assistant Program Manager at Aethercomm in San Diego, Calif., and has been there for three years.
She's Close With Girls From Her Season
Martin is also friendly with Tenley Molzahn, who has also appeared on Bachelor Pad and The Bachelor.
She Appeared In Larson Bates' Music Video
Martin appeared in Larson Bates' music video last year. “Got to check something off the bucket list 🙌🏻✔️ Had the most fun shooting this music video with @lawbates for his new song ‘Song for a Girl’ and it’s out now!” she wrote in September 2020.
