After that strong opener, Matt pulls Brittany to chat with her right away. He tries to get the truth behind rumor number one of the evening (and perhaps the most damaging one of all): that Brittany is an escort.
As soon as Brittany and Matt disappear, Anna knows this whole issue is her fault. She clearly feels bad, but Anna, WTF did you think was going to happen when you said "I heard rumors she is an escort?"! The damage had clearly been done, and Matt sent Anna home (to the shock of the rest of the ladies). One mean girl down, a few left to go.
The next issue for Matt to solve: Victoria called Ryan a ho. Matt talks to Ryan about the experience, and at this point he has clearly had it. I mean, I can’t say I blame him. There is always drama on the Bachelor–it’s literally half the fun of watching–but this season’s drama has been insane. And it's not even about Matt at all! They could all be arguing over his perfect abs or chiseled jawline or his impeccably styled wardrobe, but no. They’re fighting over baseless rumors instead.
After speaking with Ryan, Matt goes right to the source: Victoria. He straight up asked her why she said Ryan was a ho. “That was completely taken out of context,” Victoria said. “I'm just curious, what context would calling someone a ho be acceptable to be taken in?” Matt said back. I mean, YES! Can we embroider that on a pillow or something? Victoria has no response. Finally.
