ABC’s new resident bachelor, Matt Grant, is hesitant to reveal too much about the upcoming season of The Bachelor, but he’s quick to assure OK! that the show fulfilled his expectations.

"I definitely found love and yes, they [the women] lived up to my expectations. It was incredible, I’m still buzzing about it now, the 6’5" British import says.

Grant, 27, tells OK! that he’s always been attracted to the confidence of American girls.  "At a really young age my brother brought back an American girl," he says. "She was really fun, pretty, outgoing and good with the family. From that point on I always had a thing for American girls. Plus they also tend to know a bit more about sports than British women."

Grant, a global financier, continues, "I was looking for a girl who was going to make me laugh… someone that’s going to stand out… it’s when you walk into a room and you say ‘that’s the one.’"

Given the grim track record of couples staying together after the show, did Grant have reservations? The Brit says he didn’t watch previous seasons and had no knowledge of the show before he agreed to do it.

"The previous guys weren’t me," Grant explains. "I was confident that I could come on this and be myself… I’m not too concerned with track records."

So assuming Grant did find his ‘lady love’ on the show, does he plan to take her back to England or is he contemplating a move to the U.S.? "It’s not up to me, we’d have to discuss," he says. "Either country is great. They are the two best countries in the world."

The season premiere of The Bachelor airs March 17 on ABC
