You know how Tyler Cameron won millions of hearts on Hannah Brown’s season of The Bachelorette? Well, now it’s his best friend’s turn to accept some roses.
On March 10, the Bachelorette Facebook page shared the names and ages of Clare Crawley’s 32 contestants. Despite some initial rumors, there were still plenty of boys in their twenties. This is somewhat disheartening, considering Crawley, 38, is likely looking for someone who is just as ready to settle down as she is. Like many Bachelor Nation fans have begun pointing out, 23 through 25 just seems too young.
Still, one of those 20-somethings is a somewhat familiar face and giving folks at home something to get excited about. Matt James, 28, is not only extremely cute, but he’s also Bachelorette alum Tyler Cameron’s BFF and roommate in New York City. They also run the charity organization ABC Food Tours together. Cameron even joked way before the cast was announced that he’d like to see James in Bachelor Nation (specifically, the next Bachelor).
“I can’t wait to watch him next year,” he told People back in August, pointing to James.
“With everything going on with ABC, I can’t really talk about it,” James replied at the time.
Seriously, Cameron really likes this guy and posts about him all. The. Time. I’m sure James also posts about Cameron, but like all the newbies, his Instagram account is currently set to private.
“We have finally made ourselves a home together thanks to our friends over at @raymourflanigan! (#MYLER is forever) This whole set was customizable to the tee,” Cameron wrote in a caption as recently as February 27. “We have come a long way from living on the bean bag.”
Luckily for us, there are plenty more posts of the pair, who refer to themselves as #MYLER a lot…
“Happy birthday to my fellow cookie lover,” Cameron wrote on James’s birthday. “Keep impacting the world.” I seriously love these two. Here are some more posts from Cameron:
Cameron isn’t the only one who wants to see James as the next Bachelor. While many Facebook commentators are excited to see James join the cast, there are a lot of comments suggesting he may be too young for Crawley but perfect to lead the following season. “Love this for Matt but only if he doesn’t end up with Clare and is the next bachelor,” one commenter wrote. I, personally, would love to see it.
