Scared for your fave on Matt James’ Bachelor season? You may want to read The Bachelor 2021 elimination order and spoilers. Matt, a 29-year-old real estate agent from Raleigh, North Carolina, was announced as the season 25 Bachelor in June 2020.

Unlike the previous several Bachelors, Matt is the first Bachelor since Brad Womack in 2011 to not be a former Bachelorette contestant. (That said, many Bachelor Nation members may recognize him as the best friend of Bachelorette alum Tyler Cameron.) Matt—who was originally cast for Clare Crawley‘s season of The Bachelorette before he became the Bachelor—is also the first Black Bachelor in the Bachelor franchise’s 15-year-plus history. He is the third Black lead after season 13 Bachelorette Rachel Lindsay and season 16 Bachelorette Tayshia Adams.

“It’s an honor,” Matt told Good Morning America in June 2020 after he was announced as the Bachelor. “I’m just going to lean into myself and how my mom raised me and hopefully when people invite me into their homes on Monday night they’re going to see that I’m not much different from them and they see that diverse love stories are beautiful.”

Though Matt’s season is historic in more ways than one, he wasn’t safe from spoilers. Before his premiere, Reality Steve revealed The Bachelor 2021 winner that Matt proposes to. (Read on to find out who that is.) The reveal pissed the heck off of Bachelor producers who were “livid” by the leak, according to a source for OK magazine.

“Everyone on the show has been reminded that they signed non-disclosure-agreements,” the source said. “The show’s PR department strategically leaks information and teases each season to get publicity and viewers excited. However, the number of unauthorized leaks has gotten out of control. To have the winner leaked before the first episode even airs is terrible. Producers are livid,” the source adds.

Matt’s Bachelor season premiered on January 4, 2021, and as we expected, there are tons of characters in his pool of women. Who wins? Who’s eliminated on night one? Who of your faves makes it until the end? Read on for The Bachelor 2021 elimination order, according to Reality Steve. (At least, the ones we know so far.)
