Once again, Bachelor Nation is buzzing to try to discern who will select Matt James at the end of his season. He talked over the phone with Rori Sassoon about who James would end up with.
Sassoon, a professional matchmaker and regular dating expert from Real Housewives of New York, revealed who she thinks is the favorite for The Bachelor’s James season.
Abigail Heringer is a ‘Bachelor Nation’ favorite.
He has spoken highly of Heringer since the cast was revealed by host Chris Harrison in December 2020.
Abigail is one of our favourites,”Abigail is one of our favorites,”
She is a woman’s absolute gem, an unimaginable thing not to fall in love with.
Abigail has an amazing story; she’s the first person we’ve ever had on the show who is hearing impaired. [She] is just lovely and genuine, the real definition of someone for the right reasons who is here.
Matt’s dramatic season has started with #TheBachelor! Thanks for watching pic.twitter.com/QWX2Jdsk8A- The Bachelor (@BachelorABC) January 5, 2021 One of the first topics she spoke about with James was Heringer’s disability – something Sassoon instantly picked up on.
Rori Sassoon thinks there might be a match between Abigail Heringer and Matt James.
Matchmaking is The Gift of Sassoon.
Sassoon confessed during our phone call, ‘I’ve always been able to select Miss Universe and Miss USA.’ “It’s the same with ‘The Bachelor.’ I don’t know if it’s an innate [ability]because of the job I do.”
The matchmaking service of Sassoon uses personality profiles and body language to bring pairs together that make sense.
For Sassoon, from the beginning, Heringer was a perfect partner for James.
Sassoon told Showbiz, “[Heringer] will definitely go the distance from what [I’ve seen so far],” “Obviously, a million things can change, but I think Abigail [will go far this season].”
The approach of Abigail Heringer to Matt James was a bold step which helped her stand out.
Heringer presented herself with what Sassoon called “The Bachelor,” during the premiere of “quiet confidence.”
‘I love how she addressed him,’ said Sassoon. “She told him [about her disability]right at the beginning.”

Sassoon was not sure at first if that was the right decision.
But then she thought, “You know what? Maybe it makes her feel more comfortable – the fact that he knows the truth from the beginning.”
Sassoon says the willingness of Heringer to speak frankly about her condition showed faith that went beyond some of the other women’s grand gestures.
There is, as Sassoon said, “there’s a big difference [between]confidence and arrogance.”
That Matt James gave the rose to Abigail Heringer for the first impression tells everyone that
James gave Heringer the first impression as some of the women greeted James in the most extravagant way possible – one woman wore lingerie, another was ushered in on a throne.
Sassoon said of James’ ability to disregard the noise around him and create a positive connection with Heringer, “I really had a lot of respect for him,” “He shared a kiss with her – it was very romantic.”
Given the instant relation of James with the professional opinion of Heringer and Sassoon, it is still too early to say whether she will get the final rose.
Sassoon added, “It’s only the first episode, [but James]seems genuine,” “You could tell Abigail touched his heart, and then when they kissed, there was definitely chemistry.”
But as Bachelor Nation knows, when so much of the season is left, anything can happen.
Tune in to The Bachelor at 8 p.m. on Mondays. EST to see if James ends up together with Heringer.
