The Bachelorette Season 17 has introduced us to a diverse group of men, all of which are vying for the love of Katie Thurston. It’s been a riveting ride, to say the least, and we’re not quite done with it yet. Along the way, we’ve been getting to know the contestants on a deeper level, some more than others.

Amongst this group of men is Michael Allio, who won the hearts of Bachelor Nation during the most recent episode. From the minute he was introduced to Katie, he’s made a solid impression. He’s proud to be a dad and wears his heart on his sleeve. He’s an open book and has been quite honest about his life, including the death of his wife who passed away several years ago.

His son James is absolutely adorable, and it’s clear he gets that from his father. I’m really rooting for Michael Allio and hoping at some point, Katie gets to meet James. They would make the cutest family, ever.

Given how smitten Bachelor Nation has grown with Michael A., we’re diving a bit deeper into the man he is. Check out all the details below!

Michael Allio age

Michael is a 36-year-old from Akron, Ohio.

Michael Allio job

According to Allio’s ABC bio, he is a business owner. Upon further research, he is the founder and managing partner of Allstera. They sell PPE (personal protective equipment), so I’m assuming he was super busy during the pandemic.

And if selling PPE isn’t commendable enough, Allio also started a clothing company in his late wife’s honor, L4 (Live Life Like Laura) Project. They donate 100% of their profits to nonprofit organizations which help “address these needs and enrich the lives of individuals and families fighting cancer.”

Seriously, this guy is BAE.

Michael Allio Instagram

As of this writing, Michael has around 70.8K followers, which I’m going to attribute to Bachelor Nation falling in love with him. He seems like such a genuine guy, so we can’t help but love him!

His Instagram is filled with adorable pictures of him and his son James, as well as pictures of his late wife. It pretty much represents and confirms that he’s a wonderful guy, so if you want to see more of his life, give him a follow here.

I’m going to take a wild guess and say that Michael Allio is going to stick around for a while. But as far as staying until the very end? We’ll have to wait and see how his journey towards finding love pans out. Until then, we’ll be over here swooning over his cute Instagram profile.
