While Chelsea has been wowing Matt on-screen, she has been getting a lot of love on social media following each Monday night episode, including garnering the title of "Best Dressed in Bachelor History" from POPSUGARThe 28-year-old beauty reportedly has only been in one serious relationship that lasted five years. Could Matt be her forever man?
