“I’m just nervous as f**k,” Cameron, 27, said in the clip after his name was chosen to undergo the beauty routine. “I saw 40-Year-Old Virgin and that looked painful, and that’s what I was going for.”
A few minutes later, Cameron screamed and said “it’s bleeding” while laughing. “It is a quick excruciating pain, but you get through it,” he later added.
Shortly after, James, 29, was up for the challenge and got in the hot seat. The television personality picked up a call from his mom, screamed, and then told her he had to “call her back.”
“Today was a great day,” Cameron concluded. “Today was a day of showing Matt what these girls go through when it comes to getting ready for being on The Bachelor, so Matt can have a real appreciation for when these girls come out of the limo. We got our nails done, we got our facials, we finished it off by getting waxed. Yup. Everything is done. Kudos to you guys but amazing time.”
Of course, people couldn’t get enough of the hilarious antics. One person wrote, “This made my day LOL happy Matt James Monday!” while another echoed, “Haven't laughed that hard in a minute 😂🤣.”
A third person added, “Waxing is so painful... you guys are crazy! Lol I love it😂.”
James and Cameron — who first met playing football at Wake Forest University and have remained close since — quarantined together before James went to film the reality show in Pennsylvania.
As for if Cameron will make a cameo on season 25 of The Bachelor, James said he “wouldn’t be surprised” if his pal shows up. “I don’t want to put a lot of expectations on it, but I think it’s a great start to the year.”
For his part, the Florida native confirmed he was on the set in a December vlog. “I saw Matt. He’s extremely happy. He loves the girls… he spoke highly of them… he’s really pushing himself to be vulnerable, to put himself out there,” he said. “And I think you’re gonna get a great season.”
He added, “We had some fun. They messed with me a little bit, and you guys will get to enjoy it at my own expense, but it was great.”
