Matthew Grant Information - The Bachelor 2008!

Matthew Grant - The Bachelor - London CallingThe Bachelor (Season 12!) returns to CityTV on March 17th 2008 and this time the bachelor is Matthew Grant.

Here’s some information on him:

Matt Grant is a British global financier from Bishops Stortford. He studied at Anglia Ruskin University, Cambridge and graduated with a BA (Politics, Modern History).

He’s 27 years old, 6 foot 5 inches tall and has blue eyes.

He has five older married brothers. He’s close to his dad, Tony who is 71.

He loves to work out and loves to play rugby, cricket, tennis, rowing and skiing.

Matt Grant is the perfect picture of success … he’s a 27-year old millionaire with charm, whit and an English accent few women can resist! A native of Bishop’s Stortford, a short distance from London, this Renaissance man received his B.A. in modern history and politics from Anglia Ruskin University in Cambridge. He was captain of the university’s rowing team and plays rugby, cricket, tennis and skis. A workout buff, his other passion is current events. Having conquered the world of finance, Matt has set his sights on a different kind of business deal and has embarked on a search for true love. The youngest of five brothers, (he’s the last one still single!), Matt is very close to his siblings and his parents who still have a sexy relationship even after 30+ years together.

Matt is looking for a woman who is adventurous, playful and fun, who loves to travel and enjoys the outdoors. He’s definitely attracted to American women — whom he finds extroverted and gregarious — and he adores their accents. Matt has had an American girlfriend in the past and can’t wait to fall in love again, despite having been bitten twice before. He’s anxious to share stories and a laugh at the end of the day with someone special, and believes the woman he has been looking for will be among the 25 lucky Bachelorettes waiting to meet him in America.

    Amanda would have been a good match for someone who wants affection and brains. Matt is not thinking right in my opinion. I am now disappointed in the whole process. It is the first time I have watched this type of program; ended up watching due to the writers’ strike. I have lived in seven countries, including England, New Zealand and Canada. As a California girl who has grown-up, I think the Bachelor is clueless to what would make a long-lasting relationship. If he chooses Shayne, he will have to wait ten years or more years for her to “Grow-Up.” if she ever does. It will take that long for her to utter an intelligent thing that will not end up embarrassing the Bachelor… if they ever visit his old Cambridge classmates or an associate anywhere else in the world. If he chooses Shayne, he will have to hang out exclusively in shallow-ville Hollywood… for she will not fit very well in the UK. I hope Amanda meets someone very special who will help her heal from this experience of opening herself up on national tv. I am glad she let her temper go. (This shows she has passion; she was quick to see that she was “played” by the Matt and the media for ratings). The word she uttered had to be deleted. Too bad. Hey, this Bachelor may look sane, but in my book, Matt may want to be a Hollywood star too rather than find true connection with a woman. This show is his ticket… Be on tv and next comes the Soaps, right? Look at the “fierce” dress designer; he is now on “Ugly Betty.” At least he is talented and worked his way into the fashine industry. I think it is great that he will have a guest appearance on tv. I wish the Bachelor program would be brave; spreading the show out over a six-month period, with the Bachelor spending time with fewer women to start with and in their home towns. I could do without the “cat-fights.” Then they could cut, and edit the program, so we see only the interesting highlights. I also wish they would use psychological testing so that they really choose appropriate women and men who would truly have something in common. Then there would be an interesting show to view. This show, as it is, I think is very lowbrow or low-class. I do not care how good-looking this person is or how rich his family, he is not being honest. There are dozens of suitable women at home in the UK for him to choose from so I think his intentions are to become a film or tv actor, not to find a true soulmate.

    Psychological testing? Haha. You know they won’t get rid of the drama queens because they’re amazing for the TV ratings. I mean, if Marshana weren’t on the show, the girls’ interactions would have been so boring.
