‘The Bachelor’ Spoilers: Jojo Fletcher Claims Matt James Could Be One Of The Best Contestants Ever
She revealed how she met Matt on the set. When speaking to the Here for the Right Reasons podcast, she said: “We went to just, like, you seen other contestants come down and help them out. Tayshia and I actually came down, did the whole quarantine, had a date with Matt. You film so much stuff for this show, and inevitably certain things have to get cut just based on how the show plays out.
“So, Tayshia and I got the call, and they’re like, ‘Hey, we’re so sorry, but with editing and everything that’s going on we’re gonna have to scratch that date, it just doesn’t make sense.’ It’s totally fine; we had so much fun doing it. Yes, we were actually there, it wasn’t like a hologram of us over there, it just didn’t air.” So how was the experience?
Rather well as she went on to reveal: “When we got to talk to him, I was like, ‘How are you feeling? Because you’ve never done this before. This is it overwhelming for somebody who just came from it let alone, like, getting used to everything and just being the lead is very hard,” Fletcher told Us of her chat with James. “And awesome, like, don’t get me wrong, it’s awesome [too].”
Jojo then continued with why Matt would be the perfect catch: “[He’s owned] the fact that ‘Yeah, I’ve never done this before.’ I think that he is a total catch. Meeting him and watching him — I’ve been saying this — I think he could be one of the best Bachelors we’ve ever had. And that’s hard to do. It’s hard to do when you’ve never done it. I’m really happy with them selecting him [and] him being the Bachelor. [I’m] just really excited for him. He’s a really good guy.” This has come as a surprise given that the show had received one of the lowest ratings which ,in part, was due to Matt. But things seem to have picked up since then.
