All about Abigail Herdinger, ‘The Bachelor’ contestant

Warning: This story contains spoilers from Monday’s episode of “The Bachelor.”

Will Abigail Heringer be “the one” for Matt James?

As Season 25 of “The Bachelor” kicks off, one lady in particular has caught the leading man’s eye.

In the premiere episode, Heringer received the highly coveted first-impression rose.

When she stepped out of the limo, Heringer let Matt know that she’d be looking at his lips a lot, and not just because he’s adorable: She was born deaf and wears a cochlear implant. Matt promised to annunciate for her.

“You’re gorgeous, and how honest and open you were,” Matt told her when they got to sat down for a chat. Heringer was stunned he remembered her. “Once I heard your name I went blank… I was just staring at your eyes. I’m glad you’re here.” They sealed the moment with the first kiss of the season.

Matt gave her the first impression rose because she was so vulverable with him, the one thing he asked the woman to do.

According to her official biography, Heringer is a 25-year-old client financial manager from Oregon.

Apparently, she’s a breezy, easygoing gal. “I’m going to say that right away: Abigail is one of our favorites,” teased Chris Harrison in an online presentation about the women. “This is an absolute gem of a woman, impossible not to fall in love with.”

There should be no fears about Heringer’s intentions. “True definition of someone here for the right reasons,” said Harrison. She “makes a very strong first impression on Matt.”
