The Bachelorette Season 19: The Under-The-Radar-Men: Part One

#1: Aven, 29

Hometown: San Diego, California

Profession: Medical Device Sales Representative

Upon looking at his promotional photo from a US Weekly article that was posted about a week and a half ago, he just looks shy. He looks like someone who won’t say much to the guys and will kind of lay low with them.

But he also looks like someone who will open up to one or both Bachelorettes this season, pour his heart out completely and honestly, only to get his heart broken. I can kind of see him being like the Rodney of this season…

As far as who I can potentially see him with the most between Rachel and Gabby, I’m going to have to go more with Rachel I think. Still not 100% sure yet, but that’s where I’m at today…ask me in a few other days and we’ll see if my answer changes or not.

#2: Erich, 29

Hometown: Santa Monica, California

Profession: Acquisitions Analyst

He looks like someone who has got a big heart but can also be tough to open up to others. Statistically speaking, this wouldn’t really work out all that well for him, just based on past seasons in the show’s franchise history.

He seems sweet, but he also seems like he’s truly got the potential to go under the radar simply for being boring. Only time will tell…

As far as who I can see him with, I am going to have to go with Rachel. He doesn’t seem like Gabby’s type and I just really can’t see them together or picture them together. Hmm…

#3: John, 26

Hometown: Nashville, Tennessee

Profession: Model/Actor

He looks shy. He looks like someone who will try not to start trouble, but also someone who will try to get in the middle of it all (to break it up, though, of course).

I can’t really see him doing much of anything, really. He actually seems like someone to me who is just too kind and too sweet and too open for either of the two ladies. In fact, I can actually see him going home on night one (sorry, man). If he makes it further than I personally expect him to, then I can see him with Gabby more than Rachel, but maybe I’m wrong in both ways. Who knows?!

#4: Jordan V.

Hometown: Alpharetta, Georgia

Profession: Professional Drag Car Racer

He seems nice. But he also seems super boring to me. He looks like your typical guy, honestly. I can see him hanging out with the ‘bros’, but I can also see him totally okay with having a spa day with the ladies as well.

A couple of cool facts about Jordan, since nothing else will really stick out about him–he competed in his rookie season of being a drag racer, got the race to runner up in Dallas, as well as finished and made it to three semi-finals rounds. If he makes it, I can see him more with Rachel, as opposed to Gabby.

#5: Kirk, 29

Hometown: Lubbock, Texas

Profession: Assistant Football Coach

While he doesn’t necessarily look like Michael A. from Katie’s season of The Bachelorette, he does seem like someone who could act like him and treat the ladies much like Michael did.

I truly think that he will be the Michael of the season! As someone on Twitter said about him ‘I can see this guy making the final four for sure’. He seems like someone who will treat either lady with so much grace, respect, and integrity that all of the other guys won’t even have a chance to compete with him. I have a feeling that he’ll get caught up in the middle of some sort of stupid naked wrestling group date, though. I can see him with either Bachelorette equally! Go, Kirk, Go!
