The New Star of The Bachelor: Matt Grant

at . Comments

We recently received some great news in DeAnna Pappas being named the star of the new season of The Bachelorette this summer.

Now, some more. Matt Grant, the new star of The Bachelor, is totally hot. And British! The 27-year-old global financier would trade his fortune for true love any day, he says, and is looking to get married ASAP!

Matt Grant's ideal partner is adventurous, outgoing, and fun. His take on participating and meeting American women on The Bachelor:

"I was coming into this a little bit fresh and free from any constraints that might hit me from watching it. I'm a single guy, I'm a red-blooded male. I have the opportunity to date hot American women. Enough said."

There you have it! Matt Grant is the youngest of five brothers, all of whom are married and have families. Needless to say, he wants to join the club!

Sure, he's a hunk. But Matt Grant is also smart and athletic.

Grant has a B.A. in history and politics from Anglia Ruskin University in Cambridge, where he was the captain of the university rowing team. He also skis, plays cricket and tennis, and works out like a madman.

Anyway, that's it for our first sneak peek at Matt Grant, ABC Season 11 star of The Bachelor, who's coming to a country near you on March 17!

Follow the jump for some videos of Matt - introduced on ABC's Dance War, and in a James Bond-style commercial for the new season!

The Bachelor Quotes

I would definitely prefer not to be the first Bachelor rejected at the end of all of this.


This is not another season of The Bachelorette. Or Paradise. This is actually The Bachelor. I know, I’m as surprised as you are.
