The Bachelor


Season Premiere
New Bachelor Matt James isn’t a former contestant, but he hangs out with them on Instagram. The 28-year-old real estate broker is familiar to anyone who follows the social media exploits of former Bachelorette Hannah Brown and her one-time suitor Tyler Cameron — and now he’s beginning his own “journey” to find “love” as the very first Black star of The Bachelor. Shot in a “bubble” at the Nemacolin Resort in Pennsylvania, the season 25 premiere features gimmicky entrances, a woman whose job is listed as “Queen,” and multiple uses of the d-word — and by that we mean “dildo.” Don’t say we didn’t warn you. —Kristen Baldwin
