Sometimes finding love can be a long journey. For the latest Bachelor, it’s at least a Transatlantic one.

British “global financier” and business development manager Matt Grant, 27, will star in the latest incarnation of ABC’s reality romance series The Bachelor, when the 12th season premieres March 17.

The London-based hunk is “totally charming and a witty English gentleman who works with millionaire businessmen, but he has something on his mind that is more urgent than any business deal — he wants to find the love of his life and to start a family as soon as possible,” the network says.

For his part, Grant, who has four brothers (all married!), says picking his love from 25 single American ladies puts him in a “privileged position.”

“It’s a combination of going with your heart and your head,” he told Drew Lachey Monday night on Dance War: Bruno vs. Carrie Ann. ” It’s just trying to get as much information about the individual, their lives, what makes them tick, what makes them laugh.”

Tell us: How hot is Matt Grant compared to previous Bachelors? Will you watch his season of the show?
