The Bachelorette

Who Is Doug Clerget? Bachelorette 2012 Contestant Background Info

Age: 33
Occupation: Realtor, Philanthropist
Hometown: Tacoma, WA

Doug Clerget is one of the 25 men competing for Emily Maynard’s heart on Bachelorette Season 8, according to our sleuthy spoiler guy, Reality Steve. We did some cyber-stalking of our own and figured out some more about this hunky realtor who hails from just South of Seattle, WA.

Doug, 33, was born and raised in Tacoma, WA, by his grandfather, according to Tacoma Weekly. Apparently not one to rest on his six-pack laurels, Doug has degrees from both Eastern Washington University and the tony Wharton School of Business. Doug currently resides in Tacoma, and has photos of his son, Austin, up on his Facebook page.

In addition to his successful realty career, Doug runs a charity, Dollar Per Month, with his cousin Jason. In an interview with Tacoma Weekly, Doug explains the inspiration for his philanthropic leanings: “I grew up in a family where philanthropy was a big deal. As I got older, it just does not feel like our generation gives very much. I was thinking to myself, that everyone has a few extra dollars a month, if they just had a place where they could trust that that money could go to a good cause and it was easy, then they would do it.”
