It's long overdue for "The Bachelor" franchise to introduce a Black male lead but after more than 18 years on TV, ABC has finally announced Matt James as its first Black bachelor this morning.
For those of you wondering who he is, for starters, he was set to be on Clare Crawley's season of "The Bachelorette" before it was postponed indefinitely due to the pandemic — TBD on what's going to happen with that. Oh, and he's also Tyler Cameron's BFF!
Here are just 11 reasons you should rush to apply for Matt James's season of "The Bachelor." Because trust me, he's a total catch.
He gives back through ABC Food Tours, "exposing kids to new experiences and teaching that anything is possible."
He's athletic AF
So much so it's a BIT intimidating, but we'll keep this on the list of "pros."
Another day, another impeccable outfit.
He's great with kids
He's got some dance moves
Nothing to see here other than two pals dancing shirtless.
He has hot friends
