Fans React to Matt James' Finale and the 'Bachelorette' Announcement

Bachelor Nation had a lot to say about the season finale of The Bachelor and After the Final Rose.

Viewers thought Matt James and Rachael Kirkconnell had found love when they saw the pair leave The Bachelor in a committed relationship, but things quickly took a dramatic turn when Matt revealed on After the Final Rose that they were no longer together following Rachael’s racism controversy. While Rachael went on to share that she’s been educating herself with a number of things she’s been reading and watching, some fans weren’t exactly here for it.

“I can list all the documentaries, movies and things I’ve listened to…”

List them then Rachael. #TheBachelorpic.twitter.com/6MsgzgeWT4

Or for her crying over her relationship with Matt.

After Matt decided not to propose, leaving the season without an engagement and now a breakup, some Bachelor fans felt cheated out of a season.

Matt: I’m not ready to propose

Also Matt: I see you as my wife. I see you as the mother of my kids #TheBachelorpic.twitter.com/c7qhfKd4Z3

All this drama just so he could ask her to be his girlfriend… #TheBachelorpic.twitter.com/8KVZVJtOam

We really sat through 12 weeks of that #TheBachelorpic.twitter.com/LJ2zjeLRmM

But, one thing fans did appreciate was Matt’s brother, John.

Some fans even admitted that they’d like to see him at the next Bachelor contestant.

Is Matt's brother single? Because I would very much like to see more of him on this show. #TheBachelorpic.twitter.com/syZgtDiAM8

Going back to Michelle Young’s exit — while it didn’t come as a surprise for many it was still hard to watch.

Just because we knew it was coming doesn’t mean it doesn’t hurt😢#TheBachelorpic.twitter.com/NJtXKdh0M5

And, no one expected to hear a voiceover of Chris Harrison announcing his ATFR replacement, Emmanuel Acho.

Wait a sec…. did Chris Harrison do the voiceover introducing Emmanuel??? #TheBachelorpic.twitter.com/IzCv3POWW0

Why the hell am I hearing Chris Harrison’s voiceover… #TheBachelorpic.twitter.com/GLAuSBNJYV

Nobody:
Chris Harrison: let me do the voiceover #TheBachelorpic.twitter.com/piLJ4cROt6

The franchise continued shocking fans when Acho revealed the next two Bachelorettes during the special. Both Katie Thurston and Michelle will lead their own seasons of the series, much to fans’ delight.

We did it yall! We got them both! #TheBachelor#ATFRpic.twitter.com/S0J4AUOXP1
