Matt James is a commercial real estate broker who resides in New York City. He was raised by a single mom in North Carolina after his parents split. Their divorce resulted in his future struggle with relationships, however, for season 25 of The Bachelor he has vowed to to be vulnerable with the women and break down the walls that he once built. James is best friends with Bachelorette alum Tyler Cameron but hasn’t ever been on a Bachelor Nation journey before, which sets him a part from previous bachelors a bit. And that’s not the only thing. He is also the first Black Bachelor in the history of the show. Coming into the season he’s built up some nerves, and we watched him break free of them during episode one last night.
