So, while the nickname could be confusing to the average person, it seems that Matt has a pretty good reason for using it on Rachael.

Matt’s mom looks for love

Matt isn’t the only one hitting reality TV to find love! His mom, Patty James, decided to try and find love on the first season of The Golden Bachelor. While she had fans across the nation rooting for her, it seems that Gerry Turner didn’t think she was the one for him. After not receiving a rose at the very first ceremony of the season, Patty was sent packing. However, all hope may not be lost for his Bachelor Nation mom.

It seems fans desperately want Patty to be the Golden Bachelorette. They even took to her Instagram post talking about her departure to express their wants.

  • “Patty, if you are open for it, I’m gonna start making some noise for Patty as Bachelorette!!! You are pure gold. 😍😍”
  • “You looked fab! And the plan is: you will be the first “Golden Bachelorette” — ABC please make it happen 👏👏”
  • “Next PLATINUM Bachelorette!!! Right everyone????❤️”
