PureWow recently sat down for an exclusive interview with the Bachelor Nation alum, who is preparing to release his debut book, Making the Love You Want, on October 2. While discussing season 25 of The Bachelor, Johnson revealed that he couldn’t be more thrilled for James.
“He’s an awesome guy. He has a great smile and even better personality,” he told PureWow. “I should take advice from him. You know, it’s his first time, and he’s already gotten the big role. I think I can learn a lot.”
James was originally supposed to appear on Clare Crawley’s season of The Bachelorette, but it was postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic. Despite the last-minute switcheroo, Johnson fully supports James as the lead.
