From his Official ABC.com bio:
- What do you hope to get out of participating in this television show?
My only expectation is to have a fun and interesting experience. I would love if it ended up in love, but I am going to have a great time no matter what and put everything I have into the experience. I’ll learn something, I’ll make friends and have great story at the very least.
Do you like being the center of attention, or do you prefer being more mysterious and why?
I like being the center of attention. It just means you’re connecting with the majority or the group.
I love it when my date…
I hate it when my date…
…is NOT cool.
What is the best date you have ever been on in the city you live in, and why?
The best dates are the ones that are not planned. I spent two hours in a grocery once that was amazing. It’s incredible how much you can learn from someone in a grocery store. Food connects childhood memories, family stories, current lifestyles and financial strategy.
Describe your idea of the ultimate date.
To really get to know someone and not just create a romantic ambiance, I’d say Costco. See above for the why.
What’s the closest you have ever come to getting married?
I bought a ring once after dating a week, as I was sure she was the one. Two months later I found out she never ended it with her ex.
