The First Black Bachelor

Out of the entire Bachelor universe, I’ve only watched two full seasons of a show in the franchise: Rachel’s and Tayshia’s seasons of The Bachelorette, so I was a bit skeptical about watching Matt James on The Bachelor. Attractive men usually know they’re attractive and I have zero interest in watching an arrogant man or women being catty with each other to end up with him.
