America asked, and "The Bachelor" finally answered. After years of pleading for more diversity and representation among "The Bachelor" franchise leads, Matt James has been named the show's first Black bachelor.

Just this week, fans launched a petition asking for change on the show, starting with a Black lead for season 25. Several previous contestants, including Nick Viall, Kaitlyn Bristowe, and Becca Tilley, signed and shared the campaign, and it garnered over 85,000 signatures in just four days.

This announcement is a huge win for Bachelor Nation, but it has many fans asking: Who is Matt James?

2. He briefly played as a wide receiver in the NFL for the Carolina Panthers and the New Orleans Saints.

3. He's best friends with Tyler Cameron.
