Katie Thurston's season of The Bachelorette just premiered, and viewers are already obsessed with one man: Greg Grippo. The 28-year-old New Jersey native is as sweet as pie, loves his big family, and was visibly nervous during his first “date” with Thurston.
Grippo didn't just wow viewers but he also connected so much with the Bachelorette that she gave him the coveted First Impression rose. “I do feel that there's something there,” Thurston told Grippo during the first episode. “And once we can get past those nerves, I think there's a great guy under there.”
He replied, “I really, truly feel like there's a connection between us.” Cue fireworks. Okay, not yet since the season just started, but you’d better believe they're coming.
If his relationship doesn't work out with Thurston, though, he has options. One fan tweeted, “The only reason I’m watching the Bachelorette is for Greg.”
More fans also showed their excitement on Twitter. “YEAAAAA GREG NATION LEMME HEAR YALL MAKE SOME NOISE,” one tweet reads.
If you want to learn more about Grippo, read on for his ABC bio:
“Greg is the full package. He's handsome, kind, vulnerable, and serious about wanting to settle down. Greg considers himself a hopeless romantic, and a perfect first date would be something active like riding bikes, dancing, or going to a concert. Greg wants to travel the world with his wife before having kids, of which he says he wants to have at least six! Greg is also extremely close with his family and says his parents set his definition of #romancegoals. Thanks to their love, the standards for what a successful marriage looks like are sky high. Greg wants to find someone he can grow old with and treat like a queen, so the Bachelorette may just be swept off her feet!”
Bravo, casting directors. Bravo.
