If you’re unfamiliar with her, prior to becoming The Bachelorette, Katie really vibed (lol get it?) with Bachelor Nation from the moment she stepped out of the limo on Matt’s season of The Bachelor. She overcame a gimmicky entrance and made it pretty deep into the season.

She started off by playing the quirky and funny role and as the women quickly started to get mean, Katie started to get real. She stood up to bully after bully and was able to be open and honest with Matt about what was going on in the house. Though it didn’t work out between her and Matt, Katie quickly became a fan favorite and production clearly fell in love with her, too.

In my opinion, she’s the most Kaitlyn Bristowe Bachelorette we’ve had since Kaitlyn Bristowe herself—and the franchise seems to have worked out nicely for her! Katie’s big Kaitlyn energy bodes well for the upcoming season. Here’s to hoping that Katie will be able to take advantage of this opportunity and fall in love with one of her many suitors. And without further ado, let’s get to know one of them—Brendan Scanzano!

Brendan Scanzano job

According to his bio on ABC, Brendan is a firefighter trainee. Per his now deactivated LinkedIn page, he previously worked as a Customer Representative at Scotiabank. Quite the career change for Brendan! He also does some part-time modeling work. If he doesn’t find love with Katie, maybe he’ll follow in Canadian firefighter Kevin Wendt‘s footsteps and find love elsewhere in the franchise.

Brendan Scanzano Twitter

Brendan has had his Twitter account since early 2021. BIG time hockey guy. Recently retweeted this beautiful photo of Boston Bruins superstar David Pastrnak, but I digress. Most of his tweets (retweets) are hockey-related, but he fired off this gem earlier in May:

If Mondays hit different now, just wait until you’re on national television every Monday this summer, eh. Good luck, buddy, I hope you live tweet with us!
