There are no story in the mainstream media on whether Matt has a boyfriend or not but this does not stop the Internet from sharing photos and video with Matt and Tyler.

Nevertheless, so far ABC has not make a statement on the photos and videos which many argued clearly reflects an intimate relationship between the two men.
So who is his alleged boyfriend - a male model named Tyler Cameron. The two men met while filming The bachelor years ago, and claim that they are NOT romantically involved and that they are both straight. But many argues there's something a little too intimate about their friendship.
Matt James told People, "I feel a load of responsibility," James admits. "But in that, I feel like my experience isn't everyone's experience. I can only go and speak on things that I've experienced and live out my truths and do the best I can to represent who I am and how I was raised. "
In a confessional, James says that he hopes his race will play a positive role in his future marriage.
"Being a person of color, it's important to me that someone knows what that's like and embraces it, because that was part of who I am and it's going to be apart of our relationship," he says.
