There’s no denying Matt James‘ season of The Bachelor is full of drama, drama and more drama! Believe it or not, things are going to get a lot crazier once contestant Heather Martin arrives. The California native was first introduced to audiences during Colton Underwood‘s season of The Bachelor in 2019. To learn more about Heather, keep reading! 

Heather Martin had a unique storyline:

As Bachelor viewers may recall, a big part of Colton’s storyline during his season was that he was a virgin. For Heather’s part, the now-27-year-old shared a shocking revelation of her own … she had never been kissed! Of course, that all changed when Heather and the leading man shared a sweet peck.

So, has the blonde beauty kissed anyone since Colton? “I have not, nope. Colton was the last,” Heather, who eliminated herself in week 7 ahead of hometown dates, told Us Weekly in March 2019. “It was great. It was so surreal. I couldn’t have asked for a better [first kiss].”

Considering it’s been nearly two years since then, we imagine that’s changed.

Heather Martin is friends with Hannah Brown:

While it’s unclear exactly how Matt, 29, and Heather know each other, it’s safe to say they met through Hannah! After all, Heather and the season 15 Bachelorette, 26, became friends during Colton’s season.

As for Hannah and Matt, they were introduced by Tyler Cameron. Tyler, 28, and Matt have been BFFs since playing football together in college. Although Matt and Hannah initially had some beef after the Alabama native didn’t choose Tyler as her winner on The Bachelorette, the trio ended up quarantining together in Florida amid the coronavirus pandemic in March 2020 and now, they’re all besties!

Heather Martin won’t receive a warm welcome:

Just like the five new contestants brought in during episode 5 on Monday, January 25, the women competing for Matt’s love didn’t appreciate Heather’s arrival. “Heather, what are you doing here? You could honestly destroy this whole thing for Matt,” host Chris Harrison tells her during a season 25 teaser.

“You already had your f–king shot at a Bachelor, like, go home,” one contestant is heard saying in the clip, while Hannah says, “This is like an impossible situation, still, like, I do feel like Matt’s worth it.”
