Matt James of The Bachelor recently sent a fan a tip of one dollar via Venmo. Why did the Bachelor Nation personality send a fan of the reality TV series a tip? Why was the tip just a single dollar? And, what — if anything — did the fan say in response to receiving the tip from Matt James?
Wait, why did Matt James send a tip of one dollar to a fan?
Turns out, this was more of a response to a request for money than anything. The fan more or less called Matt James out asking for the tip. The TikTok user did this by finding Matt’s Venmo information and sending him a request for cash. And, he — shockingly — responded.
A TikTok creator named Victoria Hammett shared a “story time” on the platform giving the details on what happened.
I was watching The Bachelor Monday and someone went home who I did not want to go home. So I did what any other sane person would do. I found Matt James The Bachelor‘s venmo and I charged him money for wasting my time.”
And, this… This is where the story gets really interesting. Did Matt James respond to the request for money? Yep, he sure did!
The TikTok users added: “He accepted my request. He paid me $1 for wasting my time! Thank you, Matt James. You can kiss me with your eyes open any day.”
