Matt James, who's currently in the process of finding love over in Pennsylvania, will save us all from the hot mess that is The Bachelorette (still not over that dodgeball game). Already his group of Bachelor girlfriends seems pretty chill, and there’s one contestant that we should be paying special attention to: Abigail Heringer. Early spoilers from Reality Steve strongly indicate that Abigail is going to be a major player this season, so here’s literally everything the internet knows about her thus far:

She Got Matt’s First Impression Rose

Reality Steve confirmed this news on ye olde Instagram, along with some pics of Abigail (swipe through!):

Yes, She's on Instagram

Kay, so Abigail is on the ‘gram @abigail_heringer, but she’s currently private because the ABC Powers That Be force everyone to lock down their social media accounts during filming. In other words, you can’t spend tonight stalking her and her friends, sorry.

She Has a Degree in Finance

In fact, she's a financial manager at the Opus Agency. HELP ME HELP MYSELF, ABIGAIL.

Her Family Is Rooting for Her

Abigail's mom Suzie appears to have spoken to a local Salem, Oregon, paper about her daughter joining The Bachelor, saying, "She's always made us proud, and she's got a really good head on her shoulders, so I'm not worried about anything. Hopefully, she'll have fun. I jokingly told her to remember her grandparents will be watching. I know that will stick with her."

But, LOL, she also said, "To be honest, I don't think this is a great way to meet your forever person." 🙃 🙃 🙃

She Was Born with Congenital Hearing Loss

Abigail's mom told The Salem Statesman that her daughter plans to open up about her hearing loss on The Bachelor:

"I was surprised she was willing to share her story about her hearing loss. It's something she usually doesn't talk much about. With her disability, if that can impact one other person, it's worth sharing the story."

And Finally, She's Part of the Alpha Phi Sorority

This is probably only interesting to people who are also part of Alpha Phi, but ya know. At least it gives me an opportunity to share the most haunting sororo gif of all time:

Obviously we're still in the early days of reporting on Matt's season, so expect more details about Abigail as they roll in!
