Who Are the 2021 Bachelor Contestants? Meet the 32 Women on Matt James’s Season

The Bachelor contestants for Matt James's season are all iconic. I already know this from the bios ABC dropped in late 2020. One woman lists her job as “queen.” Another is a professional ballerina. And one woman, according to this tweet, is perhaps the greatest human who's ever walked the face of the earth. I can't wait to get to know them more—and see which ones go the distance on James's season.

As for what he's looking for, James told Good Morning America back in June 2020 it's someone who's "selfless, honest, caring, compassionate—qualities found in women all shapes and sizes.” And he wants kids too. “I think the grandkid counter for my mom started when the [Bachelor] announcement was made,” James told People. “She wants a basketball team. I’ll have a minivan, as many as we can fit.”

Matt James, of course, will make history as ABC's first Black Bachelor. “I feel a load of responsibility,” James admits on the show's premiere, according to People. “But in that, I feel like my experience isn't everyone's experience. I can only go and speak on things that I've experienced and live out my truths and do the best I can to represent who I am and how I was raised.”

So let's get to know the contenders a bit more, shall we? Below, all 32 Bachelor contestants vying for Matt James's heart this season:
