Kit Is Like...Really Young

Kit was born on May 20, 1999, which makes her a Taurus and a 21-year-old member of Gen Z! Although Kit is eight years younger than Matt, that shouldn’t be a problem because her official Bach bio says, “She’s found that most guys she meets don’t match her maturity level, and although she is only 21, she is very ready for a serious commitment.”

Kit’s Mom Is Kind of a Big Deal in the Fashion World

Kit is the daughter of Cynthia Rowley—a New York city–based fashion designer who makes clothes so beautiful (and so expensive) that my heart weeps. Kit’s dad, William Keenan Jr., is a sculptor. Kit’s parents aren’t together anymore, but it seems like she and Cynthia are v close—in Kit’s official Bach bio, she said she wants to be a “fashion entrepreneur” like her mother. They also cohost a mother-daughter podcast on Spotify called Ageless. Cute!

Kit Is From New York City

According to Kit’s bio, she “is a true born-and-raised New Yorker. She currently lives at home with her parents in the heart of the West Village while finishing her last year of undergrad at NYU.” So basically, this means that she and Matt already have something in common—he knows NYC well after moving there for a job following his college graduation.

Kit’s Been Single as a Pringle These Past Few Years

Kit’s bio also noted she hasn’t been in a serious relationship since she was 17 because “she hasn’t found a man who can measure up to the level of emotional intelligence she needs.” Riiiiight.

Kit Has a Lot of Talents

Like she can surf...in literal heels???

And make YouTube vlogs...

And bake...

And put together outfits like nobody’s business. (Side note, Chris Harrison himself said, “Kit had boxes and boxes of outfits shipped to where we were shooting the show...easily the best-dressed, maybe the best-dressed woman we’ve ever had.”)

And that’s about all we know about Kit—do keep an eye on this one, folks.
