With Matt James ready to make history on ABC, it’s almost time to talk about The Bachelor spoilers … but also this:

Which Bachelor is the #1 hottest of all time!?

‘Cause, even if ABC does scour the Earth for eligible dudes who are the total package, that’s still a real debate.

And subjective, we know. But a fun one!

For those keeping score, Matt is the star of The Bachelor‘s 25th season, making him the 24th Bachelor of all time.

(Brad Womack famously got two cracks at the job … and yet didn’t get a happily ever, or even close, after either).

Obviously, Matt is the first black Bachelor, and the franchise’s second black lead overall, following Rachel Lindsay.

The show’s low-key racism and how it needs to handle Matt’s 2021 season are topics that will be debated at length.

But we’re glad he’s the new leading man of the franchise, and today we’re just here for pointless fun in his honor.

Gaze at the ghosts of Bachelors past, see for yourself who’s the hottest of the hot and where you’d rank Matt.
