James Morris didn’t get put in the best light while he was on The Ultimatum season 2. The Netflix reality TV star appeared cold to viewers and not that into his beautiful seven-year girlfriend and high school sweet heart Ryann McCracken. “I find it hard to believe in a one true love. Statistically I just don’t think that’s possible. There’s eight billion people in this world,” James said at the start of the show. So who’s James from The Ultimatum season 2? Let’s find out.

James also shocked viewers with his angry temper when he blew up and broke a glass after Ryann was tapping her fingers. He blamed it on his PTSD, which he developed from a lonely childhood after his dad died when he was quite young. His mom worked as a truck driver working over 80 hours a week. James also admitted to his trial wife Riah Nelson he cheated on Ryann in the past when he was going to school out of their home state of South Carolina. Despite his and Ryann’s trials and tribulations in their relationship, the final episode made it look like James was going to give up his dream of working at SpaceX or NASA so that he could start a family with Ryann in their home state.

“I come from a small town in South Carolina where I grew up working as a mechanic and a carpenter. I have a fair amount of hands-on experience with tools and machinery. After high school, I realized that I had an affinity for math and science, so I knew exactly what I wanted my career path to look like. My educational background originates in Computational Physics and Mathematics from Francis Marion University,” James says on his LinkedIn profile bio.

“During my time at FMU, I participated in a number of clubs, societies, and social groups. I was VP of the Kappa Mu Epsilon mathematics honor society on campus and helped coordinate a number of events on campus.”

After graduating with a Bachelor of Science in Mathematics, James worked as a research assistant at North Carolina State University.

James’s Instagram reveals he has a 32-year-old sister who married back in 2014 and is raising her family in Idaho. Ashley works as a marketing manager at Viking Capital. James’s mom Laura Morris is still a truck driver and she owns her own trucking business, Triple M Trucking.

James now works at a SafeRack, which creates bulk loading safety equipment for trucking. The company he works for is based in Sumter, SC, which is ironically where Ryann’s trial husband Trey Brunson is from.

James has TikTok, but it’s a private account. He played on his high school football team while growing up in Kingstree, South Carolina, 74 miles north of Charleston.

James celebrates his birthday on December 21. Although James was age 23 while filming The Ultimatum season 2 in fall 2022 in downtown Charlotte, North Carolina, he’s now 24 years old. His zodiac sign is Sagittarius, which explains his nerdy and scientific curiosity.

“We’re both done with school. And I feel like it’s finally time for us to make that next step and get married. We’ve been together ever since we were 16 years old. We’ve never lived together. The longest we’ve spent together, is about two weeks, like, on a family vacation,” Ryann said about her relationship with James before going on the show.

James lives back in South Carolina now along with Ryann at her parents’ home as they house hunt. Fans thought they broke up because Ryann deleted almost all of her photos of her and James as a couple from her Instagram after The Ultimatum season 2 started airing. However, on The Ultimatum season 2 reunion we learned they are still happily engaged and plan to get married soon.

James loves to show his affection for Ryann by cooking for her as often as possible. This side of James wasn’t included in the final cut, so it looks like James was right about The Ultimatum mischaracterizing the cast. James also revealed that he and Ryann wore promises rings on their left hands during the show. He’s also worked on letting go of the past so he can be the best person he can be today.
