The Bachelorette season 19 started last night, and things seem to be off to a good start for Gabby Windey and Rachel Recchia. This installment features a first for the season, as Gabby and Rachel will be the co-leads throughout the episodes. This is something that has never happened before, despite the series having two leads in the past. The men competing for Gabby and Rachel’s hearts were officially revealed on Tuesday, June 7.
During the season premiere, viewers saw Rachel form a potential connection with Jordan Vandergriff, with some hoping that a kiss would happen between the two. Unfortunately, The Bachelorette viewers will have to wait a little longer to see if they actually do get that close. Jordan made it very clear that he was there competing for Rachel, and now, fans want to know more about The Bachelorette suitor.
Throughout the promos for the series, it was made clear that Gabby and Rachel would not be pitted against each other. However, there may be some guys that both of the women like. Jordan may not be one of those men, as he put his intentions out there. Here is everything to know about the suitor vying for Rachel’s heart.
Jordan is 27-years-old. He’s close in age to one of The Bachelorette co-leads, as Rachel is currently 26-years-old. Gabby is older, at age 31. However, there is not a major age gap between Jordan and Gabby, as she’s just five years older.
During the premiere, it was revealed that Jordan is from Alpharetta, Georgia. He hails from the South, like many reality stars, including the Southern Charm cast members. Alpharetta is a city with a population of over 66.000 people.
When Jordan was revealed as a The Bachelorette contestant for this season, fans of the series also found out that he is a drag racer. He is the nephew of a retired drag racer, Bob Vandergriff Jr. Clearly, the need for speed is in his blood.
If viewers want to keep up with the fledgling reality star Jordan while The Bachelorette is airing this season, they can follow him on his Instagram, @jordanvandergriff. Viewers can see his day to day life play out on his social media page. The suitor made it very clear to Rachel that he was there to pursue her, but it is unknown how far he makes it, or if he has a change of heart during the competition.
With the new season of The Bachelorette now underway, viewers are very interested to see how this season unfolds. The trailer seems to show a season that is filled with drama. Viewers who want to find out if Jordan is the one for Rachel should tune in every week, to see where their Bachelorette journey will take them.
