Twitter users had plenty to say when Matt James kicked off his season of The Bachelor with a peek at his religious side. Among those who appreciated the move was Bachelor Nation’s own Madison Prewett.
After the new lead of The Bachelor led his 32 women in prayer during his season premiere on Monday, Jan. 4, the runner-up of Peter Weber‘s season took to social media to offer her stamp of approval.
“Off to a great start,” she tweeted about the dating series, adding the praise-hands emoji. “It’s the opening in prayer for me.”
Following the wacky-as-usual limo entrances, Matt admitted to host Chris Harrison that he was experiencing nerves. Once he walked inside to finally greet his women as a group, he delivered a prayer, which the stars of the series have not typically done in past seasons.
“I had so long to think about what I’m going to say to you all, and I’m gonna take a different approach,” Matt told the ladies. “So if everybody can just bow their head really quick, I’m going to pray for everyone.”
