The new Bachelor and former Bachelorette contestant had some fun in the sun while hanging out with friends on a boat.
Matt, 28, and Tyler, 27, showed off their ripped abs while sporting bathing suits.
Tyler’s brother also joined the group of friends, who hung out on a boat when they weren’t wakeboarding.
Matt and Tyler’s day at the beach follows the news that Matt will be the first Black Bachelor in the dating show’s history.
ABC announced Matt as the next Bachelor after a petition came out urging ABC to cast a black male lead for the series.
He was initially meant to appear on Clare Crawley’s season of The Bachelorette before he was chosen to take over the leading role on the next season of The Bachelor.
While Matt has never personally appeared on a show in franchise, he is no stranger to Bachelor Nation.
Tyler, his roommate and best friend, was the runner up on Hannah Brown’s season of The Bachelorette.
The friends live together in New York City, though they have recently been spending time together in Tyler’s Florida hometown during the coronavirus pandemic.
The duo are also business partners and run ABC Food Tours, an initiative that aims to “feed, educate and give back” to kids in low-income communities.
Matt regularly appears in Tyler’s Instagram posts.
Tyler even gave fans an inside look into his close friendship with Matt while he taped an interview for Good Morning America announcing his season.
The ex-Bachelor contestant posted an Instagram Story of Matt wearing a pair of boxers with his pink suit jacket while he video chatted with the hosts of the morning talk show.

While appearing on GMA, Matt opened up about being the next Bachelor.
Matt said: “It’s an honor.
“I’m just going to lean into myself and how my mom raised me and hopefully when people invite me into their homes on Monday night they’re going to see that I’m not much different from them and they see that diverse love stories are beautiful.”
