“I’m not dating Matt,” she clarified to hosts Ben Higgins and Ashley Iaconetti. “I think he has a lot going on in his life. You know, he’s going through a ton. I can’t even imagine…so many different aspects of the show, just everything. So, I think he has a lot going on right now. So, no, I’m not dating Matt.”
Adams Sent Hall Home Amid Religious Differences
Despite being a fan-favorite, Hall was sent home after fantasy suite dates. While off-air, he and Adams were able to discuss their religions in-depth for the first time.
As he later revealed, he identifies as Agnostic whereas Adams is Christian.
During their last conversation on the show before he went home, Hall said, “I was definitely struggling with bringing it up, because, you know, all the girls I have dated in the past, it never ended because of religion or anything, but I know that’s something that’s important to you.”
While he told the former Bachelor, “she could’ve brought that up a little sooner,” he added, “It’s no fault of her own, [Adams] had the shortest Bachelorette season ever. She was kind of just thrust into that role, so maybe she didn’t get a chance to think all this stuff out nearly as much as Clare [Crawley] and others have had the opportunity to. We had the shortest season ever, so we got to the fantasy suites stage faster than anybody ever has, really.”
As for her part, Martin is open about her Christian faith but has not addressed if she finds it important in a potential romantic partner.
