Matt James‘ brother John was featured on the finale of The Bachelor. John was on-hand at Nemacolin Resort to meet Matt’s two final women, Rachael Kirkconnell and Michelle Young, along with Patty James, Matt and John’s mother.
“My brother and my mom, they know me better than anybody,” Matt said in a promo for the Bachelor finale.
According to Distractify, Matt and John were both raised in North Carolina. It’s unknown how close the two brothers are, but they do not appear very frequently on each other’s Instagram accounts — though they do follow each other. The only photo of John and Matt on John’s Instagram was posted on August 2, 2020, and does not contain a caption.
John’s most recent Instagram share was posted on Valentine’s Day. He shared a photo of his mother on a horse, and added two emoji for the caption; a pink tulip and a pink heart.

“I’m guessing Matt’s brother values his privacy,” one person responded.
“I wonder if Matt’s brother was raised more by their father and Matt was raised more by their mother,” suggested another.

Shortly after John made his debut on the Bachelor finale, some Instagram users looked him up and have been taking to the comments section on some of his posts.

“My views are my own and I would never force that on somebody, especially with those views being different within my family. My brother and I have completely different religious beliefs, and I don’t love him any less,” Matt told the outlet.
“I would never want that to be something that kept me from being with somebody,” he added.
