This morning on Good Morning America a new bachelor for the hit ABC series, The Bachelor, was named.

Season 25 will star 28 year old real estate broker Matt James.

Matt is already making history by being the franchise’s first black male lead. James told GMA, “it’s an honor. I’m just going to lean into myself and how my mom raised me, and hopefully when people invite me into their homes on Monday nights, they’re going to see that I’m not much different from them and they see that diverse love stories are beautiful.”

BTW, ladies… Matt says he is looking for a woman who is “selfless, honest, caring, compassionate,” and hopes “there’s a lot of diversity and I see every type of woman coming out of the limo.”
