Why did Matt James dump Mearg Tareke aka Magi? ‘The Bachelor’ fans say ‘she deserved better’
One fan tweeted, 'Can NOT believe that Matt sent Magi home. Like, I get it, they didn't seem that connected, but I looked forward to seeing her every week!!!'
For Matt James of Season 25 of ‘The Bachelor’, honesty comes before everything. So far, he has sent many suitresses home, who he felt lacked certain values that he’s looking for or simply didn’t bond with. But in February 8 episode, after he told MJ Snyder to leave the show citing her ill-treatment of the new suitresses, he canceled the cocktail date with the rest of them and cut short the rose ceremony.
The majority of the ladies were rather irked by the fact that their date with Matt was canceled due to what happened between Jessenia Cruz and MJ Snyder, and expressed their concerns about being sent home for the same reason. Many wondered if Matt would eliminate Serena C or Katie Thurston as they were seen bickering over the latter “snitching” on others, which has affected everybody’s relationship with the bachelor. However, he decided to send Mearge Tareke aka Magi along with Ryan Claytor and Brittany Galvin. It doesn't explain his reason behind sending Magi home and it isn't serving her fans well.
Magi’s elimination came as a shocker to the viewers as she was one of the most-liked contestants of the season and always chose to stay away from any sort of trouble, unlike the others who are still in the house. Irked by his decision, many took to Twitter to express their frustration about Magi leaving the show.
However, Magi accepted her elimination gracefully and even said that she is looking forward to meeting her future partner outside the show and that she hasn’t given up. But fans strongly feel she “deserved much better”.
One tweeted, "thinking about the fact that Matt sent home Magi and kept Kit.... I might just walk into an active volcano #TheBachelor." Another added, "Queen Magi deserved better! She’s not only GORGEOUS but also, has a heart of gold Check out her charity http://msyshoes.org, which provides shoes to underprivileged girls in developing countries. #TheBachelor #TheBachelorABC." One disappointed fan wrote, "Can NOT believe that Matt sent Magi home. Like, I get it, they didn't seem that connected, but I looked forward to seeing her every week!!! #thebachelor." One wrote, "Magi and Brittany deserved better whyyyyy Serena C over them?? #TheBachelor."
