Matt James’ historic season of The Bachelor is officially here! Six months after Matt was announced as the first Black Bachelor, his season premieres on ABC – and ET blogs live.
32 women meet Matt, a New York City-based commercial real estate agent and bachelor’s franchise novice, at Nemacolin Woodlands Resort, Pennsylvania. The franchise turned things upside down after The Bachelorette (which was filmed in Palm Springs) but is still maintaining a quarantine bubble amid the coronavirus pandemic.
Although Matt, who was originally announced as a candidate for Clare Crawley’s Bachelorette season, is a fresh face to the fans, host Chris Harrison told ET that it won’t take long to get to know him.
« You all see a certain page of him on social media. There is so much more, « he said. « You see the 5% of the iceberg. There is so much depth, there are so many layers in this man that you are about to get to know, good and bad. «
Chris promises sparks will fly as soon as the women get out of the limo, and is it because the vibrator is not working properly?
Anyway, Matt has arrived reminding Chris that he’s never been to the Bachelorette or any other Bachelor franchise show. This is all new to him.
Chris points to the approaching limo, but Matt isn’t ready yet. « I’d like to ask you a few things, » he says before Chris agrees and leads him inside.
« Tonight is the night! » Exclaims Matt when we get another shirtless shot. He’s getting ready, there’s a reason for it, OK?!?!
He doesn’t know how to put into words what’s going to happen, but he gives his driver a polite « thank you » on the way to the castle.
There is a woman named Sarah who was a broadcast journalist and now takes care of her father who has ALS.
Now we’re done with learning back stories and seeing the women prepare for the first night. Yes, attach it !!!
Chris is back to remind us they got an « overwhelming response » for Matt as a bachelor. Time to meet the ladies!
Thank goodness this quarantine segment is shorter than Clare’s season. We don’t need masks or coronavirus tests. Let’s jump straight to love !!
There’s a ballerina who loves kids, a woman named Abigail who was born deaf but is learning how to talk about it, an attorney for her A-Game, an Ethiopian pharmacist, and a woman who loves caffeine.
Matt’s mother encourages him to give it a try and tells him she is ready for him to meet his « only one ». « Yaaa’s sister, send him on this trip!
Now it’s time for Matt to prepare for the big night – so he does it shirtless. « I have so much hope in this process because I’ve seen it work, » Matt tells the camera, even though he didn’t see the show. We suspect Tyler Cameron, who falls in love with Hannah Brown, counts as « see it work »?
Matt delves a little into his backstory and talks about being the son of a black father and a white mother. His parents separated when he was young so he had no model of marriage to look up to.
« My mom did a great job, but growing up in a single family home I feel like I missed what it takes to be in a good relationship, » he tells the camera.
Enter Matt James’ mom who rocks the animal print and comes straight to the tough questions. She asks when Matt was last vulnerable and lets him admit he’s scared of breaking his heart.
« Why did you decide that maybe you don’t have to have everything in place? » she asked.
Chris Harrison appears for the season at the STUNNING Bachelor Mansion – Nemacolin Woodlands Resort in Pennsylvania. He throws a small package to introduce our bachelor because we have no idea who he is.
We’re still trying to forget about the vibrator, but this scene starts to do the trick.
The premiere is here! And that’s a . . . cold open? Did we start halfway? What’s happening?
Matt meets a woman named Katie who tells him what quarantined her. . . and pulls out a VIBRATOR. Matt bursts out laughing. . . and NOW the episode has started.
