The Bachelor has named its First black leading Man



LOS ANGELES, Calif. – For the first time in its 18-year run, “The Bachelor” has named a black leading man.

The reality show announced Friday that 28-year-old Matt James will star as the bachelor for the 25th season.

Good Morning America reports that James was originally cast as a suitor on Clare Crawley’s upcoming season of “The Bachelorette,” which has been delayed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

ABC hopes to air Crawley’s season of “The Bachelorette” this fall, with James making his debut on “The Bachelor” afterwards in 2021.
