Abbey from Perfect Match makes her appearance rather late in the debut season, but she's the one who makes the biggest impact on the show. 

While the Perfect Match couples begin to solidify their relationships, Abbey Humphreys casually strolls in for a beachside date, ultimately turning Francesca Farago and Damian Powers' connection upside down, but in the best way possible. Her arrival indicates that the Netflix series decided to segue into a more sexually-diverse storyline, something her match, Francesca, applauded.

Farago recalls being frustrated with the dating options at the villa where Perfect Match was filmed, and she had even thought about making an early exit until she was able to explore connections with the same sex.

"I found out there was a possibility of me being matched with a female, and I was like, ‘In that case, I will stay for that,'" Farago told Variety (opens in new tab). "I wasn’t even sure if it was going to happen because it was a heterosexual show. But I’m glad that it happened, and I’m glad that that relationship happened as well. I kind of just switched up the game.”

The two aren't linked now, and Francesca is dating Jesse Sullivan, a trans man who rose to fame on TikTok for his alliance to the LGBTQ+ community. But having this type of representation on TV, she believes, is the key to acceptance, something she and Sullivan have not necessarily experienced, particularly on social media. 

"To have these aspects of public hate from that just proves that the more representation we have, the more positive it will be because people will see that we’re just normal people," she further revealed to Variety

So, who is the woman who took the reality dating show in a new direction and shed light on sexual diversity? Let's dig into Abbey Humphreys' history. 

Who is Abbey from 'Perfect Match'?

Abbey Humphreys made an appearance in a lesser-known Netflix reality series titled Twenty-Somethings: Austin. Essentially, it focused on a group of young adults who began to explore what they wanted out of life, from careers to relationships and everything in between. 

Humphreys had arrived on the show fresh out of a divorce from her husband and was anxious to explore her sexuality as a newly single woman. "Austin, hide your sons...and daughters," she joked in the show's teaser.

What is Abbey Humphreys' background?

Though little is known about the reality star, it's believed she hails from Texas and is one of three children in her family. She studied at the University of San Diego and married at a very young age—just 20. 

It's not been publicized who she was previously married to, but rumors suggest that she was likely tied to someone she had met while in California, and it's believed they first crossed paths at a fast-food chain.

What is Abbey Humphreys' age? 

Born in 1995, she's a 27-year-old Sagittarius.

What is Abbey Humphreys' job?

Abbey at one point had worked at a bookstore in San Diego, and we get a look inside her love of reading on her TikTok, where she details how it helped her through a dark time. She is still attempting to settle down in one location and establish roots there, so time will tell what she decides to pursue professionally.

Where do Abbey Humphreys and Francesca Farago stand now?

Although the two might've only been a temporary perfect match, it seems there's no bad blood between Abbey Humphreys and Francesca Farago, as they still make appearances on one another's social media feeds. 

What about Abbey Humphreys and Bartise Bowden?

Abbey Humphreys and Bartise Bowden also struck up a brief romance, but it did not end well for the two. After a connection that appeared strong, Bartise quickly swayed to Izzy, and when Abbey questioned him why, he brought up topics about Abbey's sex history on TwentySomethings, which she had told him in confidence.  

"You're using my words against me. Things that I told you in confidence you're going to weaponize," she asked. "You're not who I thought you were—that sucks."

Bartise, for his part, was not concerned with how he appeared to those watching. 

The entire first season of Perfect Match is now streaming on Netflix.
