Dale Moss is set to make Bachelorette history as the first contestant ever to appear on a Bachelor franchise series from this great Midwestern state.
Ahead of the season 16 premiere of The Bachelorette, there has been a lot of buzz about contestant Dale Moss and the rumors surrounding just how far he makes it in the season.
While we’ll have to wait to see if Dale has a hand in delivering one of the most unexpected moments in the history of The Bachelorette, the former pro football wide receiver has already made history becoming the first contestant ever to hail from the great state of South Dakota!
Dale Moss becomes South Dakota’s first Bachelorette contestant
Given the number of bachelors and bachelorettes to appear across the various iterations of ABC’s Bachelor franchise, it might come as a surprise to many to discover that Dale Moss is the first contestant to ever represent The Mount Rushmore State.
As revealed in Dale’s official bio page, the former NFL wide receiver is from Brandon, South Dakota, a small town with an estimated population of roughly 10,000. Not only did Dale grow up in South Dakota, but he eventually would go on to play Division 1 football and basketball at South Dakota State which set him on the path to becoming signed by the Green Bay Packers as an undrafted free agent in 2012.

What states have never been represented on The Bachelor or The Bachelorette?
Considering how many seasons of The Bachelor and The Bachelorette there have been, it’s crazy to think there are several US States which have never been represented on either series. However, all these years later there are still a handful of states that have never produced a Bachelor Nation contestant.
Thanks to Dale Moss, South Dakota can now join the list of states represented on the show leaving just four states unrepresented on the show: Delaware, New Hampshire, North Dakota and Wyoming.
