Matty said he realised where things were heading that night when he first stood in front of Georgia.

"If she was picking me, it was going to be one of the happiest moments of her life... and I didn’t get that vibe from her. She looked like she had this remorse she was trying to hide, and I could tell she was choking on her words."


"When the words finally came out of her mouth, it just hit me like a steam train and that’s when I had to let go of her hands."

"My initial reaction was like, ‘Let’s get out of here as quick as we can.’"

With many fans of the show shocked, even Matty's mum thought he would end up with Georgia.

"My mum and sister knew the result. Watching it back, at one point my mum said to me, 'I want to double check, you’re not lying to me are you? You did end up with her!' and I was like, 'No, Mum, I’m not lying'."

Matty isn't quite ready to step back into the dating world just yet either.

"I don’t want to rush back into it. I don’t really have any appetite at this point to go back on a date with someone."

So does that rule The Bachelor out for 2017?

"It feels like I’ve finished a marathon, and I’m exhausted, and someone is coming up to me and asking if I want to do another one! I can’t think of anything worse. But it might change in a few months time."

But at the end of the day, Matty J sure does have a lot of supporters out there.

"For those who have been supporting me, it’s been completely unexpected but so welcomed, and I really appreciate all the kind words."
