1. James is Ready for Another First
On the Season 25 premiere, Matt James – not only the first Black lead, but the first franchise newcomer to hand out the roses in years – admits to Chris Harrison that he’s never been in love. Not ever. Not once in his life. “It’s my job to change that,” the host tells The Bachelor.
2. He’ll Have Quite a Few Choices, Too
ABC released the names and photos of 43 women ahead of the season premiere. They range in ages from 21 through 32, but not all of these suitors will end up appearing on the show.
3. Wait, Where is the Season Being Filmed?
James’ journey kicked off January 4 at the Nemacolin Woodlands Resort in Farmington, Pennsylvania. The set was reportedly isolated and all COVID-19 protocols were being followed.
4. Make Way for Tayshia!
If you recognize the surroundings, your eyes are not deceiving you. The latest Bachelorette actually filmed her After the Final Rose ceremony at this same place – and the newly-engaged Tayshia is expected to pop up at some point on Matt’s season.
5. Will Other Familiar Faces Show Up?
Yup! In addition to Tayshia, look for Matt’s great pal, Tyler Cameron, to make an appearance. And also Hannah Brown, who is friends with Matt and, uh, “friends” with Tyler as well. And also Wells Adams. Seriously.
6. Matt Being Matt
For a long time, there was no reliable intel, and we were forced to rely on comments like this one from Tyler: “Matt is being Matt and we’re going to get the Matt we all love. He’s extremely happy. He loves the girls. He spoke so highly of them. There are so many great girls, he says he’s really pushing himself to be vulnerable to put himself out there, and I think you’re going to get a great season and a great Matt.” Never a doubt!
