Tyler Cameron shares details on a good match for Matt
Best friend and roommate, Tyler Cameron, also spoke out Monday night. He shared what he believed would be a good match for Matt. He said, “I think what you’re going to look for is someone who kind of resembles his mother. His mother is one of the sweetest ladies, very loving, caring, compassionate… Matt’s gonna change the world, and someone that’s ready to take on that challenge with him.”
Matt was originally going to be on Clare Crawley’s season of The Bachelorette. That all changed when producers loved his energy level and character. He was then asked to be The Bachelor. While he’s disappointed about Clare, he is looking forward to his own journey.
And, he’s not the only one. Matt’s mom is already talking grandkids. In fact, she wants a whole basketball team worth of grandbabies. While he’s on board with having kids, he says a minivan full is good enough for him.
Hopefully his season has a happy ending and Matt finds everything he is looking for. Stay tuned for details regarding the upcoming season of The Bachelor.
