Woman Makes History As the First Ever Deaf Contestant on the Bachelor

Monday night's premiere of ABC's The Bachelor was filled with 'firsts.'

Matt James was the first black male lead Bachelor.

Abigail Heringer was the first deaf contestant on The Bachelor.

As soon as she met Matt she explained to him she was born completely deaf.

Matt appreciated her openness. He later kissed her and presented her with the First Impression rose.

Have you ever had to tell someone you were dating an important fact about you? What was it and when did you share it with them?
