A point of contention among fans, and even for the other women on the show, was that Matty made it so obvious Laura was his favourite all along.
“On the one hand you appreciate there is a TV show being made and you want to be entertaining but at the same time I got what I came for and I don’t care,” the happily in love Johnson, 31, told The Daily Telegraph.
“Do I wish on night one I could have just said goodbye to the 20 other girls and go Laura’s the one? I wish I could have,” Matty confessed.
While they only saw each other four times between the end of filming and last night’s finale, Matty says he did bump into Laura at the gym, one of the perks of living in the same suburb.
“I saw Laura at the gym after filming. I looked over and she was there, I was like, Oh my goodness,” says Johnson.
“It was pure coincidence but frustrating because I couldn’t go over to her. I just ran to my phone and said “I really want to kiss you right now.”
