The Bachelorette: Matt James Ditched ABC Show to Become Next Bachelor
Matt James was originally on the list of contestants to win Clare Crawley’s heart on The Bachelorette. In the months leading up to filming, he did some interviews to promote the ABC show. And he also raised funds for charity during that time.
Matt is a community organization founder, and his charity work is no surprise to his fans. He used his growing fame to help others in need and to do some good. The network noticed his growing popularity with Bachelor nation fans. So, they decided to offer Matt his own leading role in the main franchise.
And, Matt accepted the opportunity to find love. As The Bachelor, his odds of going home with a wife are much higher. On The Bachelorette, he’d be one of the 31 men vying for Clare Crawley’s attention on her season. Whereas on the main show, he’d be the one with all the suitors.
