Popular content creator and beauty guru James Charles has surprised fans after announcing he would be hosting his own TikTok version of The Bachelor.
James Charles had an incredible year in 2019, as the YouTuber continued to gain new fans, despite the controversial feud between him and Tati Westbrook, even causing a traffic gridlock in Birmingham during one of his meet and greets.
The beauty star has even more planned for 2020, announcing that he would be kicking the year off hosting a TikTok version of the popular reality TV show, The Bachelor.
Although he admitted he was hesitant to post the video to TikTok, Charles explained that he didn’t feel like there was much to lose, “I feel like this can’t hurt and I don’t think it will turn into a scandal.”
The popular content creator then explained that many of the TikToks were made by couples, “I made one major observation after downloading TikTok and that is that this app is pretty much a dating app, let’s be real.”
“Everyone on here is either in a very cute relationship or is painfully single,” he expressed reluctantly, “Unfortunately for me, I fall into that second group of people, surprise, surprise!”

The YouTube star revealed he wanted to change that going forward and came up with a new idea for his followers to take part in, “In 2020 I’m trying to change that and put myself out there a little more and I want to get wifed up so I want to play TikTok Bachelor.”
Similarly to the popular reality show, Charles then started to describe himself and his hobbies before making a call for those interested to get involved and introduce themselves by commenting or to use TikTok’s Duet feature in response.
Despite his confident approach to the TikTok Bachelor announcement, at the end of the recording, he could not help but laugh at the whole idea of it, saying “oh my god what have I done.”
Even though asking the general public to get involved in such things as this can usually result in being trolled and other risks, Charles otherwise seemed to be quite optimistic about his unusual selection process for a new boyfriend.
