Matt James Bio, Age, Parents
Appearing as Bachelor in ABC “The Bachelor” Season 25, Matt James was born on December 5, 1991, in Raleigh, North Carolina, United States of America.
Matt James is 32 years old now.
James was born to father Manny James and mother Patty Cuculo James.
While his mother, Patty James, belongs to white ethnicity, James’ father Manny, remains a mysterious figure.
For most of his childhood, Matt grew up in Raleigh in the absence of his father, who left the family very early on.
Since his father left, James’ mother, Patty, started looking after all of his needs despite struggling from a financial standpoint.
However, regardless of everything, his mother, Patty, always managed to provide all the essentials for James.
According to James, his mother also nourished his soul in the church.
James is a devoted Christian who has absolute faith in God, just like his mother Patty does.
Patty James currently works as a Sales Consultant at Fendol Farms.
Matt James High School, University
Matt joined Sanderson High School in Raleigh, North Carolina, and graduated in 2010.
Because of James’ athletic background as he played football in high school, he received a scholarship from Syracuse and the University of Kentucky.
However, James did not want to leave North Carolina and be far from his mother.
With that reason, and also in conjunction with personal preference, James enrolled at Wake Forest University in Winston-Salem in 2010.
Winston-Salem is about 90 miles away or about 2 hours ride from his home in Raleigh.
“I saw Wake Forest and just fell in love with it. Other than becoming a Christian, coming to Wake Forest was the best decision I ever made.”
Matt graduated from Wake Forest University in 2015 with a Bachelor’s Degree in Economics.
Matt James Has a Girlfriend? Dating, Relationship
We know Matt James is absolutely hot, like a snack on fire.
Now, by definition, Bachelor means a man who isn’t and has never married. Once married and the title’s gone.
But that doesn’t have anything to do with having a girlfriend and affairs.
Now, diving deep into Matt’s social media, there are a couple of things that stand out.
He’s very popular with girls. Like really popular.
But that comes as no surprise for such a tall, dark, and handsome man.
When it comes to dating, there’s suspicious activity here.
There are two different women who seem like Matt’s possible girlfriends.
Don’t worry; they’re not his current ones.
Between March and April, Matt posted pictures with two lovely blonde ladies.
While this one looks like a casual prom date, the other one is the interesting one.
“Where you think she at when she ain’t witcha.”
This is the caption to a picture that clearly shows some sexual tension. (Not claiming anything)
However, these are also really old pictures.
So ladies, in 2021 have nothing to fear about. Apart from all the beautiful and sexy contestants who will try their best to make Matt their partner.
What does Matt James Do for a Living? Job
Glad, You asked.
As mentioned earlier, Matt actively played college football. However, there came a time when he had to think of what to do if football did not work out.
And he was right; it did not work out for him.
In 2015, Matt tired for the NFL league with Carolina Panthers, but he did not make the cut. Again, he tried getting into NFL and join New Orleans Saints, but it did not work out as well.
By this time, he had already started working in finance management and real estate.
While in college, Matt began working as a Broker Assistant. He worked at Davenport & Company, as well as Merrill Lynch.
During his early career days, James worked at firms like Morgan Stanley, Verger Capital Management LLC, PNC, Mic.
Since 2017, Matt James works as a research and associate at CBRE, a real estate agency.
He also has a company called ABC Food Tours, which guides and leads underserved community children into education, feeding, and making their lives better.
They make stops at different restaurants and fitness areas in every tour.
He runs ABC Food Tours with his close friend Tyler Cameron.
Matt James also owns a cafe in New York called Pause Cafe.
Why Everyone Loves Matt
By now, you love Matt James as well because he’s just an awesome personality.
But what if you’ve just scratched the surface here. Here is more reason why everyone loves the North Carolina native and Season 25 Bachelor.
He’s Friends With Tyler Cameron
Matt is close friends with American Model and TV star Tyler Cameron. Cameron appeared in season 15 of The Bachelorette. Matt and Tyler are both Wake Forest graduates.
Matt Has Abs and Plays Golf Shirtless
Having abs in itself is such a sexy thing. But on top of that, he plays golf, shirtless, giving the majestic view of his Greek-God like body.
Matt Runs Marathons For A Cause
A fit body like Matt’s isn’t just something that comes easily. He works hard for it. But whenever he gets a chance of running for a cause, he’s always at the front.
He’s Extremely Honest
Matt is not among those who preach about how awesome exercising is. He clearly says he hates side-hops, more than he loves burger and pizza. But well, he also thinks it’s worth it.
He’s Into Boxing
By this time, does anything that Matt does to become fit come as a surprise? Of course, he’s into boxing.
He’s Had That Afro On
Matt prefers crew cut and fit clothes these days. But during college, he was into Afro as much as he’s into fitness and helping people today.
Loves His Mother
Matt loves his mother, the person who made him what he is today, unconditionally. And the best part is he isn’t afraid to show it.

While going up a small staircase to meet Matt, a candidate tripped over and fell right into Matt’s arms.
The candidate who tripped and fell into Matt’s arm is Serena Chew, professionally a flight attendant. Also, Serena falling into Matt’s arms was not an accident, it was intentional tripping.
Matt revealed that he has never been in love. Fans also see him in tears. Is it because James found someone he loved?
Or is it because Matt had to eliminate someone he loved?
