The Bachelor fans are waiting on the edge of their seats for Matty J to finally reveal tonight who captured his affection.
And ahead of the Channel Ten dating show’s finale, a body language expert has weighed in on who the lucky lady left standing will be.
Speaking to Daily Mail Australia on Thursday, Diederik Gelderman said that based on Matty’s interactions with the women, former Hockeyroo Elise Stacy will win over jewellery designer Laura Byrne.

‘He was a little more relaxed with Laura and more expressive in his body language but also I think more cautious and reserved at the same time,’ Diederik explained, before naming Elise as Matty’s number one pick.
However, it’s not all good news for the former sports star, with Diederik predicting the romance between the pair is not destined to last.
‘I think that she will leave,’ Diederik said. ‘She kept saying things like “I think I’m falling for you or in love with you”. There was a lack of commitment and congruity.’
He added: ‘There were also some micro expressions that indicated that there were some unresolved things going on in her head – in spite of what she was saying.’

Marketing executive Elise recently revealed her fears that Matty wasn’t being genuine during The Bachelor process and that his feelings for her may not necessarily be real.
But Diederik said that based on Matty’s body language and interactions with the women, he was not being insincere with his intentions.
‘There does not seem to be any hidden agenda with the two that are left,’ he reasoned.

Diederik’s predictions are in stark contrast to the current odds in place on Sportsbet.
Laura is the most likely to have Matty confess his love for her in the finale, with the longtime favourite currently holding strong at $1.30 on the online betting site.
While still in with a chance to woo Matty, Elise’s odds are currently hovering around the $3.50 mark.
