In this way, the 28-year-old Matt James has become the first black male to hold a title role in ‘The Bachelor’ after 40 seasons.

“HUGE congrats to Matt!!! So excited for this! ❤❤❤” said, Lauren Zima.

“I had written off this show after last season. They have won me back again with this choice 😍😍” added, Lauren Briglia.
