We're Honestly Living For Matt James's Journey to Becoming a Charcuterie Board Master
Matt James has been relatively low-key and laid back on his season of The Bachelor thus far, but over on TikTok, he's showing a whole other side of his personality. In the past few weeks, the reality TV star has become quite fond of whipping up charcuterie boards — or rather, charchootary boards, as he prefers to call them — and the videos are beyond entertaining to watch.
Whereas a classic charcuterie typically features an assortment of meats, cheeses, crackers, fruits, and nuts, Matt opts for nostalgic snacks from childhood, including Bagel Bites, dinosaur-shaped chicken nuggets, Fruit Roll-Ups, Teddy Grahams, and Uncrustables. And yes, he arranges them in a very aesthetically pleasing manner, if we do say so ourselves.
Matt's charcuterie-building videos on TikTok are always accompanied by his hilarious, often self-deprecating voiceover commentary. For example, he poked fun at his own tendency to kiss with eyes open — a habit many Bachelor Nation members have teased him about this season — and he even likened Twinkies to the shape of his nose. Meanwhile, it's worth noting that some fans have a sneaking suspicion that Matt's newfound charcuterie obsession is a subtle hint at contestant Rachael Kirkconnell potentially winning his final rose, because her Bachelor bio mentions a love for meat and cheese boards. Regardless of whether those rumors are true, we can all agree that Matt's charcuterie content is the pick-me-up we needed. Watch all of his videos thus far ahead.
