Matt James is breaking hearts.
Although the first black leading man in the show’s history only just started his tenure as “The Bachelor,” he’s taking after Tayshia Adams and getting down to business.
A whopping 32 women quarantined for weeks and underwent several COVID-19 tests to try to win the 29-year-old’s heart at the Nemacolin resort in Farmington, Pennsylvania.
While there were some real catches — including Chris Harrison favorite Abigail Heringer — some of the ladies just weren’t the right fit for James.
On the first night, he sent eight women home, leaving 24 dates going into Week 2: Abigail, Alana, Anna, Bri, Chelsea, Illeana, Jessenia, Kaili, Katie, Khaylah, Kit, Kristin, Lauren, Magi, Mari, Marylynn, MJ, Pieper, Rachael, Sarah, Serena C., Serena P., Sydney and Victoria.
Here’s who didn’t get a rose.
