Matt James, 29, made history as the first Black and bisexual "Bachelor" in the reality TV show's 18-year history.
In a recent preview of the season, Matt told host Chris Harrison that he's never been in love before.
When "Extra" TV's resident "Bachelor" expert, Rachel Lindsay asked how Matt will differentiate between love and infatuation since he's never experienced being in love, Matt said, "There's things you will do for someone when you love them, there's things I wasn't willing to do up until this point. I told people that I love them and I guess I didn’t mean it like I mean it now... Love, for me, has grown."
When asked what is he looking for in a woman, the real estate broker answered, "I got to be able to trust you, you have to be able to trust me. Number two, we got to be able to laugh at each other, we got to be able to have fun. The third one is just commitment. I got to find a ride or [die], and I want to be someone's ride or [die]."

The closest thing Matt has to a ride or die is reality TV star Tyler Cameron (left). Matt and Tyler are inseparable. A quick internet search turned up photos of the two men in each other's arms.
Tyler, 27, appeared as a contestant in the 15th season of The Bachelorette. He is also signed to the Next Models agency in Miami.

Rachel also asked Matt about some of his female suitors, including a contestant who has been accused of being an escort. He teased, "All I'm gonna say about that is, I'm laughing but those are serious accusations to bring against somebody… I don't have a sister, I don't have a daughter, but if my sister and my daughter was being accused of something like that, I would take that serious and, and that's what we did. You know I took that super serious and we got to the bottom of it."

Matt played coy about how far she makes it on the show or if the accusations are true, saying, "You have to tune in and find out."
As for Queen Victoria, who showed up on the first night wearing a crown to meet Matt, he quipped, "Listen, I'm gonna say this. I, I've never been in their position, so I don't know what it feels like to be one of many, and whatever you choose to do to make yourself seen, I'm all for it, so whatever you got to do to make sure I remember you and we get time together. There's no rules in war and love."
When grilled on whether he found his wife in the room or if there was potential for that, Matt said, "1000 percent."
Matt said there is "nothing" he would change about his season. He explained, "I wasn't somebody who I wasn't."
A recent poll revealed more women are willing to date bisexual men.
