Matt James age, Instagram, height, job: Everything to know about the season 25 Bachelor


The Bachelor is back and fortunately, the new year will send the ABC franchise back to its regular slot of Monday nights. Matt James’ journey to find love will officially begin on January 4, and I think I speak for everyone when I say I absolutely cannot wait to get to know this guy a bit better.

If you’ve kept up with former contestants’ lives and their friends, then you’ll likely know who Matt is. Prior to winning the lead role on The Bachelor season 25, Matt was best known in the media as Tyler Cameron‘s best friend.

second place


Beyond that, you might not know many details about Matt, considering he’s never appeared on the


franchise before. So if you’re here to learn a thing or two about the show’s next star, we’ve got everything you need.

Matt James age

This handsome man was born on December 5, 1992, and is 28 years old. He’s originally from North Carolina and now resides in New York City.

Matt James Instagram

Matt’s already got an impressive social media following, even before he begins his stint on The Bachelor. To check out his Instagram page, where he’s currently got 469,000 followers, head to the link here.

The franchise’s charming next lead uses his platform to post about his organization, ABC Food Tours, as well as with friends and family. To celebrate his birthday earlier this month, he shared an adorable photo with a pug and captioned it, “Only party animal I get to celebrate with this year.”

According to his football information from Wake Forest College where he went to school, Matt stands at a tall 6’5. Dang!

Matt James job

Matt’s ABC profile lists him as a real estate broker, and he also founded the organization ABC Food Tours, which helps children in underprivileged communities in New York City. If you couldn’t tell from his Instagram, Matt is all about giving back, and we couldn’t love that more.

Was Matt James on The Bachelorette?

The upcoming season is definitely a game-changer for the franchise, as Matt has never been on any of their shows previously. As fans know, the next Bachelor is usually picked from the long list of former contestants, but not this time around.

Matt was slated to become a contestant on Clare Crawley’s season of The Bachelorette (currently Tayshia Adams’ season), however with COVID-19 related delays, many of her group of men were re-casted. So instead, Matt was then announced the next Bachelor, and the rest is history!

Matt James and Tyler Cameron

We can’t write an article about Matt’s information without adding something about his relationship with Tyler Cameron. The two are seriously best friends, and are often seen together on Instagram. This past summer, the pair spent a lot of time with Hannah Brown and mutual friends, calling themselves the “Quarantine Crew.”
