Gabby Windey and Rachel Recchia’s season of The Bachelorette is honestly delightful thus far (living for their friendship), but it seems clear that things are about to take a turn for the messy...mostly based on this trailer full of everyone weeping/generally spiraling:

Despite a lot of rose-induced emotions happening up ^ here ^, it does sound like Gabby and Rachel form pretty legit connections with the men that ABC's questionable casting department found for them on various corners of the internet. And you might be wondering about Justin Budfuloski (aka the guy that showed up barefoot on night 1 for reasons that have yet to be explained), because spoilers vaguely indicated that he would go far, but that actually didn't happen. Details on all that ahead, but in the meantime let's get to know Justin (or Justin B., as he's known in Bachelor Mansion) better.

Justin B. Is a 32-Year-Old Physical Therapist

This is great news considering the jobs of other men on this season include "twin," "other twin," "magician," "crypto guy," and "meatball enthusiast."

Anyway, here's Justin teaching us about back pain. Inspiring!

He's Looking for a BFF

ABC describes Justin (who is from Solana Beach, California, by the way) as a "lover, not a fighter," and says "he’s all about creating memories in life’s little moments and dreams of having a woman who will enjoy what the world has to offer by his side."

Justin also has some specific requirements for his future wife. Ahem:

"He’s not just looking for his best friend but rather wants someone who can keep him excited as life naturally settles into calm. His dream woman is open-minded, fit, and always striving to be the best version of herself. Justin B. is a glass half full kind of guy who is optimistic to his core. And let me tell you, one thing he is really excited about is meeting Gabby and Rachel. Go get ’em, tiger!”


He's Sporty and Outdoorsy

At least that's the vibe I'm getting from this photo of him clinging to a rock:

He's a Talented Musician

Chopin who? Never heard of him.

He was speculated to go far on the show

Alas, Justin's journey actually came to an end in the second episode. Before viewers saw how Justin's fate played out though, there was a ton of theorizing that he would likely end up as one of Gabby's final four. But here we are! Womp womp.
