The Bachelorette Season 17 has officially kicked off and we’re now two episodes into Katie Thurston’s journey to find love. A handful of men have already been sent home, while others are beginning to stick out.

Amongst the ones still left, we got to know Karl Smith a little bit better during last week’s episode. And he is most certainly going to be labeled this season’s villain. He’s already wreaked havoc in the house and stirred up a lot of drama, and had Katie in tears because of his meddling.

The men don’t like him, and it’s safe to say Bachelor Nation doesn’t like him much either. But who is Karl Smith when he’s not trying to be the innocent villain? What does he like? What does he dislike?

We’ve got all the details on him below, so let’s get right into learning the enigma Karl Smith is. Maybe he’ll surprise us? Probably wishful thinking, I know.

Karl Smith age

Karl is a 34-year-old from Miami, Florida.

Karl Smith job

According to Smith’s ABC bio, he is a motivational speaker and runs a company called Next Level Success. If you peruse through his website, you’ll see he talks about having nearly 15 years of experience in business development, leadership, and sales. Furthermore, he’s done over 1,000 talks/seminars as well trained more than 40,000 entrepreneurs and other professionals worldwide.

He might be a motivational speaker, but I’m not sure about his motivations on The Bachelorette, though.

Karl Smith Instagram

Karl has a little over 40,000 followers at the time of this writing. That’s a significantly higher number of followers than his fellow contestants, but then again, he has done talks all around the world.

His Instagram is filled with pictures of him at a number of talks, seminars, and the like. He really loves what he does, like a lot. Give him a fellow if you so desire!

Karl Smith Twitter

Yes, Mr. Smith also has a Twitter account with around 1,259 followers. His Instagram presence is definitely stronger, but if you’re interested in following him on Twitter, you can do so here.
