Grand Rapids Man To Compete For The Heart Of ‘The Bachelorette’
As we count down to Michelle Young’s attempt to find love (?) as ABC's 'The Bachelorette', we’re finding out who the men vying for her heart are, and one is from GR.
Michelle's stint as the Bachelorette will begin on WZZM-13 on October 19, and it turns out one of the bachelors looking for love is a 28 year old Academic Interventionist from Grand Rapids.
Will (no last names are given to the competitors) is one of thirty men who will compete for the right to ask for Michelle's hand in marriage.
Yes, a weird way to find love, but is really any different than rifling through quick dates on Tinder? NO. And it's a guilty pleasure of millions of people.
Here's what Will's bio on the ABC web site says about our local hero:
Will describes himself as classy, swaggy and sharp. He is more than ready to make a substantial connection with someone and is also very tired of being the only single one in his group of friends. Will is looking for a thrill-seeking woman who is always up for a spur-of-the-moment adventure. His dream woman is loyal, ambitious, accountable, and ready to push him every day to be the best version of himself because he's going to do the same for her. Will says he is a true romantic that will do anything to make his significant other know how loved she is, and now, he's ready to make Michelle the happiest she's ever been.
- Will hates getting money as a gift.
- Will is a Leo and is very into horoscopes.
- Will wants to climb Mount Everest one day.
Really? Who rejects cash as a gift? And as a Sagittarius, I have impeccable discernment, so I'm calling BS on that.
