At the time, America was deep in the midst of a debate over racism. Kirkconnel’s attendance at such a party was deemed racially insensitive. But by then, Matt James was already head over heels for her.

They left the finale together, but not engaged. However, during the After the Final Rose special that aired directly after the finale, they revealed their breakup.

However, the two quickly reunited and have been together ever since.
