One of the best parts about a new season of The Bachelor is getting to know the contestants and picking your faves. With each new installment, a fresh batch of singles are introduced to Bachelor Nation for the lead — and the rest of the fandom — to connect with. While there are plenty of impressive women being introduced in Season 25, there are already a few frontrunners to keep your eye on. Abigail on Matt James' Bachelor season, for example, is one contestant viewers are already smitten with.
The 25-year-old client financial manager is from Portland, Oregon, and from the looks of her ABC bio, she is a total catch. Abigail is "easygoing, laid-back, and always down to have fun" and when she's not working, she's probably enjoying nature, drinking a microbrew, golfing with her grandparents, or just hanging out with the fam. Abigail currently works for Opus Agency, and she graduated from Linfield College in 2017 with a degree in finance. While there, she was a member of the Alpha Phi sorority.
One peek Abigail's Insta proves she's the ultimate cool girl. While her account doesn't have a ton of posts (contestants usually scrub their socials before heading onto the show), she seems majorly chill. Her profile includes things like hiking scenery, drinks with friends, and travel shots of places like Paris and Switzerland.
In addition to her relaxed vibe, there's something else that sets Abigail apart. She was born with congenital hearing loss and currently wears cochlear implants. According to her ABC bio, "having a hearing impairment never stopped Abigail from living her life to the fullest."
It's clear Abigail is living it up, and now she's ready to find someone to do it all with. Her bio says she's "looking for a man who will lift her up and make her feel like it's just the two of them in the whole wide world," her bio reads. It also mentions that while "good looks are definitely a plus," Abigail thinkgs "getting to know someone on a deeper level is far more important in a successful relationship."
As soon as Abigail stepped out of the limo in the Jan. 4 premiere, Matt seemed drawn to her. After chatting more during cocktail hour, Matt gave Abigail his First Impression Rose, saying how much he admired her. While a lot could happen in the coming weeks, it looks like this frontrunner could be in for the adventure of a lifetime.
Season 25 of The Bachelor continues on Monday, Jan. 11, at 8 p.m. ET on ABC.
