"You've never been in love?" The Bachelor host Chris Harrison asks Matt in the promo, which aired during the premiere of ABC's new show, Big Sky.

"I haven't," Matt replies.

"My job is to change that," Chris says.

The trailer shows Matt, a 28-year-old real estate broker, meeting a group of his The Bachelor bachelorettes -- including one woman who trips up the steps when trying to introduce herself.

"The women are literally falling for you," Chris jokes with Matt.

One woman subsequently calls Matt "a delicious man" as he's shown walking without a shirt on, and then scenes show Matt making out with several girls.

And of course there will be hot tubs, drama and tears!

The Bachelorette alum Tyler Cameron, who is best friends with Matt, gushed about Matt in the November 15 episode of Chicks in the Office podcast.

"We are going to get a full dose of Matt," said Tyler, who also teased he'll be making an appearance on the show.

"[Matt is] gonna have fun, he's gonna be very vulnerable, he's gonna open himself up. We're gonna learn -- I'm gonna learn -- so much about Matt. This is gonna be good, it'll be good for him."

Matt is currently filming his season at Nemacolin Woodlands Resort in Farmington, PA.

Chris teased in October he expected Matt would be "an amazing" The Bachelor star, adding that Season 25's cast of women are "lucky" to date and potentially fall in love with him.

"There's a reason we named him early and there's a reason he's been on our radar to begin with," Chris told Access at the time, adding, "He's the kind of guy that The Bachelor was built on -- that diamond in the rough."

Matt was initially selected to compete for Clare Crawley's heart on The Bachelorette's sixteenth season, but ABC chose to promote him and announce him as the Bachelor prematurely instead.

Matt's The Bachelor casting announcement was made in mid-June on Good Morning America.

Matt will be the first black The Bachelor star ever. ABC has cast only one black lead, Season 13 The Bachelorette star Rachel Lindsay, in 40 seasons and 18 years of The Bachelor and The Bachelorette prior to Matt.

ABC acknowledged in June that ABC has "a responsibility" to implement more diversity in The Bachelor franchise and the network will "continue to take action" in addressing the problem and making changes.

In addition to being the first male lead of color for the franchise, Matt will also be the first The Bachelor star who did not appear on The Bachelorette before landing The Bachelor role since Matt Grant starred on Season 12 in 2008.

Beginning with Jason Mesnick in 2009, every The Bachelor star has been someone who had previously competed as a suitor on The Bachelorette, with the exception of the show's 2011 season which featured Brad Womack getting a second chance at love after initially starring as the Bachelor in 2007.
