How to Watch Matt James' Season Finale of 'The Bachelor', No Cable Required

Matt James’ season of The Bachelor has been riddled with contestant drama, racist scandals, and calls for the show to overhaul how it approaches its reality stars — but months ago, filming all this at Nemacolin Resort, Matt and finalists Rachael Kirkconnell and Michelle Young didn’t yet know that’s how the conversation around their story airing would go. We can certainly assume that Rachael didn’t expect photos of herself at a 2018 antebellum-themed formal to show up just as The Bachelor hinted she was a frontrunner for Matt’s heart, and that neither Matt nor Michelle were aware of those photos, nor of the fact that Chris Harrison’s defense of Rachael would go on to cost him his hosting gig. That means one thing: no matter how tonight plays out in terms of the story they wrapped months ago, it’s going to be nothing compared to the After the Final Rose that follows. Here’s how you can watch the finale live tonight for free, with or without cable.
