ABC's newest Bachelor is looking for love, and after learning some more facts about Matt James, you'll just might be too (from him, obvi). Though fans will first watch as Clare Crawley (hopefully) finds her happily-ever-after, James will be up next with his season is tentatively scheduled to air in January 2021. After being announced as the first Black male lead in the franchise, the 28-year-old is ready for his reality TV closeup. Luckily, it sounds like he already knows exactly what he wants.
"I'm looking for qualities that my mom embodies, and that's selfless, honest, caring, compassionate," he told GMA. "Those are qualities found in women all shapes, sizes, and races — it's not a Black or white thing. So, I'm hoping that when that limo pulls up, there's a lot of diversity and I see every type of woman coming out of that limo."
While he's new to The Bachelor universe, the eligible hottie is familiar with the ins and outs of the show. He was first introduced to Bachelor Nation as Tyler Cameron's best friend. The two go way back; they have been pals set they went to Wake Forest University together.
