8 Things You Should Know About the Newest Bachelor Matt James
Even though Clare Crawley's season of The Bachelorette hasn't begun filming, we have already been introduced to the newest Bachelor Matt James. On June 12, it was announced that Matt will be the first Black Bachelor and the second Black lead in the franchise's history after Rachel Lindsay's stint as the Bachelorette on season 21.
