I know, I know, The Bachelorette isn’t even over yet, but ABC just gave us a treat with our first sneak peak of the next season of The Bachelor.
Matt James will be the lead this season, which makes him the first-ever black male lead in the history of the series(which is crazy… but).
Matt was originally cast on Clare Crawley’s season of The Bachelorette but ABC decided when production was put on hold to just go ahead and make him the next bachelor instead, and judging by this first promo, I think they made the right decision.
I’m pretty excited for this season, not only because Matt is obviously very attractive, but because he has ties to NC.
James is from Raleigh, went to Sanderson High School and is a former Wake Forest University Football player.
She show premiere’s January 4th, and you already know that I’ll be watching!
