Matt's first one-on-one date is with Pieper. Matt, dressed in an adorable red turtleneck, takes Pieper to their own private carnival. It looks like fun, but also mildly haunted...is that just me?!
At the beginning of the date, Matt made it clear he had his eye on Pieper from the very beginning. Throughout their date, they felt very natural and looked like a real couple. Their chemistry is legit! Pieper eventually got the date rose after a romantic dinner. Matt and Pieper then went to a private concert with Temecula Road. If that name isn't familiar, don't fret–they're a band, you can meet them here.
Meanwhile, Heather Martin (Hannah Brown’s bestie and a contestant from Colton’s season of The Bachelor) arrives at the Nemacolin Resort’s front gates asking to speak to Chris Harrison. She literally drove herself there in a white minivan, and IDK about you but I have a lot of thoughts about that arrival! This was just the first of many questionable things we watched Heather do in this episode.
As Heather explained to Chris Harrison, she wanted her shot at love with Matt. Chris worked a little magic to make it happen (even though they're almost halfway through the season), and Heather gets the okay to join the show. She has to quarantine before her big arrival, so the next time we see Heather, she's passing the time in a hotel room as she patiently waits to meet the man of her dreams.
