It is the question that is on everyone’s lips this April Fool’s joke: Has Matt James Do you really shave your beard?

On Thursday April 1, the former undergraduate head went on his Instagram story to reveal that he had gotten rid of his facial hair after months of growing out. As he put it, “It was time. [Peace┬áhand emoji] Beard.”

The timing of this announcement was suspicious as it coincided with the April Fool’s joke. And while Matt may have looked like he was just another fitness-obsessed Bachelor Nation star who also loves chopping wood in the woods, he actually has a sense of humor, albeit more unique than most.

In this case, Matt made his own version of sausage boards for TikTok, which he referred to as “sausage boards”. These snack platters consisted of Pizza Lunchables, Oreos, Pita Chips, Hummus, Teddy Grahams, Bagel Bites, Pizza Buns, Dino Nuggets, Uncrustables, No Raisins, and once a giant biscuit cake that read “Learn to kiss with your eyes closed” surrounded by snack -Cake.
