Matt James’ season of The Bachelor is only about halfway done, but there have already been plenty of twists and turns. From the reign of Queen Victoria to the surprise addition of five new women in the middle of the season, it hasn’t exactly followed the format of a typical season. Things got even wilder when a former season’s contestant suddenly showed up to vie for Matt’s heart. But her arrival didn’t seem that unexpected, and many tweets about Heather Martin’s Bachelor appearance are already shading Chris Harrison’s questionable acting skills.
Bachelor Nation has known that Heather, who was previously a contestant on Colton’s Bachelor season, would show up at some point since her entrance was teased in the Season 25 preview. She finally arrived during the Feb. 8 episode, which began with "security camera" footage of her driving up to Nemacolin Resort.
Chris Harrison showed up at the gates and was "shocked" to see her there. "Heather, what are you doing here?" he asked her. " Heather insisted that former Bachelorette Hannah Brown told her Matt was the guy perfect for her after spending time quarantining with him. "Her telling me that meant something… I couldn’t let him get engaged and not meet him — or try my best," she insisted. "I know you’re halfway through… I just want to meet Matt."
The Bachelor Nation host agreed to let Heather come in and chat with Matt, provided she quarantined and got tested for COVID. But he just didn’t seem that surprised to see her, and Bachelor Nation quickly took to Twitter to joke about how Chris’ acting skills left a lot to be desired.
Chris telling Heather she needed to self-isolate before safely joining the competition led to another round of Bachelor quarantine jokes on Twitter.
Season 25 of The Bachelor continues on Monday, Feb. 15, at 8 p.m. ET on ABC.
