Get to Know Bachelor’s First Black Male Lead!

Bachelor Nation, a significant change is coming for The Bachelor’s latest season. The show will finally have its first black male lead!

Matt James, 28-year-old real estate broker from New York City, is the newest star of the long-running reality television series. James makes history as the first black male lead since the show debuted on March 2002.After Rachel Lindsay, the 2017 star of the companion show ‘The Bachelorette’, the newest star of The Bachelor is the second black person to be casted as the romantic lead.

Based in NYC, James’ career and life perspective are as great and thriving as this city. Aside from enjoying a career in real estate, he is also an entrepreneur, a community organizer, and the founder of ABC Food Tours- a food touring company that introduces tourists to restaurants in Alphabet City, Manhattan. James is originally from Raleigh, North Carolina, but already calls New York as his home. James emphasised Big Apple’s diversity and unlimited opportunity offers as the things that he love most about the city, expressing that the resources for success are readily available for anyone if they’ll work for it.

James holds a degree in Economics from Wake Forest University, and was once involved in football- trying out for the NFL, Carolina Panthers, and the New Orleans Saints. He is also friends with the previous Bachelor star and model, Tyler Cameron. They both went to the same university, and he revealed that it was actually Cameron’s late mother who nudged him to apply for The Bachelorette. James was originally set to appear in the companion show with Clare Crawley, but production was postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. This makes James as the first Bachelor lead who did not appear on the aforementioned spinoff show.

When asked about what he is exactly looking for in a partner, the new lead expressed that he wants someone selfless, honest, caring, and compassionate. He also shared his hopes of finding “a lot of diversity and every type of woman” in the show.

This emphasis on diversity is as hot as James in the twenty-fifth season. The show’s lack of diversity and inclusivity was once called out by Rachel Lindsay, and the petition signed by fans early this month calling for ABC to cast a black romantic lead, also strongly speaks of this demand for inclusivity. Certainly this upcoming season is, in the words of the newest lead, the show’s “first foot forward” to change.
