Time for a Deep Dive on Aven Jones From ‘The Bachelorette’

·3 min read

The Bachelorette is coming back into our lives in 5, 4, 3, 2, 1, which means we get to meet a whole new group of hot single men just out here trying to find love (and ideally a sponcon contract!) in this cruel, uncertain world. This season is going to look just slightly different thanks to ABC casting both Gabby Windey and Rachel Recchia as co-Bachelorettes, but don’t worry, they won’t be competing against each other.

The exact formatting details on Gabby and Rachel’s season remain slightly mysterious, but we do know that each of them will end up with their own pool of prospects. Which brings us to Aven Jones.

Based on spoilers, 28-year-old Aven is going to get plenty of screen time this season, so the time has come to get to know him better. (Also, speaking of spoilers, there are some ahead but we’ll give you a warning beforehand. So for now, this is a safe zone!)

Aven Is a Sales Executive

What does he sell, you ask? Unclear, but he works in San Diego, California—where a huge number of recent Bachelor Nation alums live (Katie Thurston included!).

He’s Super Passionate

ABC’s bio writer reports that “Aven’s life is fueled by passion. Whether he’s slaying the sales game at work or hooping on the weekend, Aven puts his heart into everything he does. He tries to approach love with the same mentality but has yet to find his perfect match.”

Maybe The Bachelorette will change that! Either way...

He’s All About Loyalty in Relationships

Aven knows exactly what he wants from a partner: someone who is “loyal, honest, and able to organically bring out his fun side.” He’s also hoping to find someone who loves to travel as much as he does and “will value quality time together above all else.” Above all else? “Aven wants to build a meaningful relationship that goes deeper than the surface and when he meets the right one, he is ready to put it all out there if it means finding his forever.”

Also, because you’re wondering, here are his ABC “fun facts”:

  • Aven enjoys slow dancing.

  • Aven allows himself to eat out only once a week.

  • Aven is a Yahtzee champ and describes his game play as intense.


He Makes It to Rachel’s Final Four

In other words, Aven is one of the four men Rachel goes on hometown dates with. Thanks to Reality Steve’s sleuthing powers, we know that Rachel visited Aven’s family in Salem, Massachusetts, in April—and there’s even footage of their date:

Tragically, there are no spoilers whatsoever about exactly how far Aven—or the rest of Rachel/Gabby’s final four—makes it. This could be because much of The Bachelorette was filmed on a cruise ship (so it was probably easier than usual for producers to keep things under wraps) or it could be because Reality Steve and other spoiler sources simply haven’t spilled yet. Either way, we’ll keep you updated on whether or not Aven put a ring on Rachel’s finger. (Side note: It doesn’t look like he was cast on Bachelor in Paradise, so chances are he made it pretty far!)
