    Re: Bachelor 12....ready to start?!?!?!

    I noticed that in the article it stated that he is the youngest of five brothers with all his brothers being married and he wants to start a family soon. I got a little deja vu feeling since last season we had a bachelor that had married brothers and didn't want to feel left out. Really though, I am not comparing him to Brad at all, I just thought that was funny. I have as high of hopes for Matt that you can have on this show. I like the description of Matt and look forward to seeing his sense of humor. He sounds good on paper. Wait til Fleiss gets a hold of him though.

    I read that at the site and sighed. After our discussion this afternoon, the baloney is slicing thicker. What else can PR do, though? By global, do they mean he worked for citibank (though in London?) Has he really advised millionaires, or is that even more lovely hype? If we all stay away from the official site except for photos, we might make it through this season. Maybe.

    "Global financier", "business development manager" and "works with millionaire businessmen". I'm surprised they didn't call him an executive of one thing or another.

    What on earth is a "business development manager" anyway? Why not just "business developer"? I guess he had to manage something in order to sound more important. Love the vanity titles Bachelor style!

    I wonder how many pharmaceutical sales reps we'll get among the girls...

    Thus the reason the two women that knew about his filming career were let go. Have to keep that facade up. I have a feeling that Matt Grant would not mind if people knew about his filming background.

    You are all most welcome for the pictures! Thank you also for your screencaps A&D!

    Oh, count me in. By the end, I felt like I needed boots, or maybe hip waders.

    What in the world - "his other passion is current events"? WTF? Also, I do not need to know that his parents have a "sexy relationship".

    I need to see the commercial! I missed seeing him on Dance Wars.

    He kinda reminds me of Hugh Grant, wonder if they're related? Can't wait to see him "live".

    I see a combination of Hugh Grant, Jesse Palmer (I think that realitytv said this also), and actually some Lorenzo Borghese too.

    Matt was captain of the university's rowing team and plays rugby, cricket, tennis and skis.

    So will we see the women have group dates consist of playing rugby or cricket perhaps? Indoor rowing?
