However, the 29-year-old star briefly discussed his love life when speaking to E! News on Wednesday, April 28.

“I’m focused on my training right now,” he explained. “I’ve got a marathon coming up and a triathlon I’m training for as well. And I’m not pursuing any—I’m not, I’m not…I’m just super focused right now.”

While the ABC star kept his lips sealed, a separate source previously told E! News details about their recent reunion.

“Matt felt horrible about what went down with him and Rachael recently and wanted to see her. He initiated the visit,” the insider shared at the time, adding, “They aren’t back together, but definitely still have feelings. They are having a good time right now and everything feels back to normal between them.”

But as Bachelor Nation fans know, there was a time when there was no sign of the duo reconciling their relationship.

Back in March, Matt gave his final rose to Rachael during The Bachelor finale. Although they never got engaged, they appeared to be head over heels for each other. However, everything changed when Rachael’s past racially insensitive photos resurfaced, which she has since apologized for.
