“Love to me looked different before I got to Nemacolin because of what I experienced up to that point,” he said. “And yes, I guess I’d say I haven’t experienced love until I got out there.” 

Since James is new to the franchise, it wasn’t easy for him to wear his heart on his sleeve. "That was huge," he admitted. "That was kind of a crutch coming into this. Like, I don't want to force something. I don't want to put myself in a situation to hurt somebody or be hurt, and that was a realization I came to in quarantine. You're never going to be more so or less so ready to experience this. You just gotta go into it, and I'm glad I did."

Despite letting his guard down, James is happy that he took a chance to find his other half on television. "It really did break me down. There were a lot of conversations that I had, that I needed to have that I hadn't had and I wasn't planning on having," he said. "But that's where this whole experience took me, and I'm so fortunate for it."
