Matt James made history in the Bachelor franchise for two reasons. One, he was the first Black lead, and two, he never appeared on the show before being chosen as the lead.
As The Bachelor, he chose Rachael Kirkconnell as his winner, and despite breaking up while the show aired, the two were able to work it out.
While Bachelor Nation has wondered if Matt and his best buddy, Tyler Cameron, are still as close as ever, both men have spoken out.
Matt stated that Tyler and Rachael have a love-hate relationship. While Tyler said their opinions might differ at times, he is happy for his friend, too.
Now the couple seems as strong as ever and more in love than ever.
In fact, Bachelor fans are wondering not only if the duo will be the next franchise couple to get engaged but if they have gone a step further already.
