Originally slated to be one of Clare Crawley's suitors on The Bachelorette, James, 29, landed a history-making journey of his own as the first Black Bachelor ever.
Speaking to GMA, James cheekily went pantsless out of frame, as Tyler Cameron captured on Instagram.
James and Cameron met in college, and they've been BFFs ever since. They're currently roommates in New York City!
Check out James in jock mode, all suited up to play football at Wake Forest University. (He also had a stint in the NFL!)
Despite the drama among the women on his season, James is keeping his eye on the prize.
Looking good shirtless is par for the course for James at this point. All in favor of shifting golf course dress code to allow for more of this, say "Aye."
