Matt James Explains How 'The Bachelor' Failed Him & His Story

Matt James is opening up about his season of The Bachelor and how he feels the show failed his story.

The 30-year-old reality star is promoting his new memoir “First Impressions” and he has explained why he doesn’t focus on the scandals surrounding his season.

“There will be another Bachelor, and there will probably be another Black Bachelor, and there will be another tell-all book,” Matt told the Los Angeles Times. “I wasn’t interested in that. If that’s what interests fans, and that outweighs the personal things I want to share, then my book isn’t for them.”

Matt made history as the first Black bachelor in the show’s history and his season ended in scandal when his winner Rachael Kirkconnell received backlash for resurfaced photos from an antebellum-themed party. They temporarily split after the season, but have since got back together and are still going strong.
