The Bachelor star Matt James knows when to wet his whistle.
Matt was a guest on Watch What Happens Live on Thursday, Feb. 11, where he played a game of “Truth or Drink” with host Andy Cohen. For one of the questions, Andy wanted to know how the Bachelor really felt about polarizing contestant Victoria Larson, a.k.a. Queen Victoria.
“Matt, on a scale of 1 to 10, how much did you like Queen Victoria?” he asked about the former contestant who was known for picking fights with the other women. This led Matt to silently stare directly into the camera as he picked up his beverage and took a drink, signifying that he would not be answering the question.
“Ohh, wow!” Andy replied with surprise. “Very good. Oh, exciting.”
However, as Matt kept drinking the cocktail, it became clear he was either really thirsty, or he was perhaps trying to send an unspoken message. This was not lost on the host.
“Wow, he’s chugging it,” Andy observed. “That’s how much he doesn’t want to answer that question.” When he finally put down his glass, Matt appeared to lightly cough, suggesting he may have consumed a bit more of the drink than he himself expected.
Matt had previously spoken out about Victoria during his appearance on The Real on Jan. 28. After a video had gone viral that showed Matt golfing with others when one of his friends body-shamed Victoria, Matt told the hosts of the show that he does not “condone or stand for” bullying of any type.
