Bachelorette’s Robby Hayes Signs Major Modeling Deal


Move over, Nick Viall.

There's a new Bachelor model in town and his name is Robby Hayes. The season 12 Bachelorette standout just signed a deal with Wilhelmina Denver, so that probably explains the recent bushy beard. 

The Bachelorette runner-up confirmed the news to Us Weekly and it seems like he's just as excited as we are.

"I've never been with a major agency such as Wilhelmina Denver," the hunky reality star tells the mag. "I've been signed with a couple smaller local agencies in my past, but this will be a big step in the right direction for me."

The reality star, who courted JoJo Fletcher's love on the most recent season of the ABC dating show, is said to snag product endorsements and hosting gigs from his new modeling contract. 

"The entire industry in Denver excites me," Robby said. "It's grown so much in recent years and the opportunity of not only great Colorado projects but national projects as well will be greatly beneficial for both Wilhelmina and my career moving forward."

But before Bachelor nation goes and assumes Robby moved from his hometown of Jacksonville, Florida to the Rocky Mountain Region just to be a model, the ex-competitive swimmer said the move was long in the plans before he struck up a deal with the renowned modeling agency.

"[It's] not the reason I moved, but definitely something I was hoping would come about knowing I was moving out here," he said.

However, Robby isn't the only hottie from the Bachelor franchise to hit the catwalk. Current Bachelor Nick is also a Wilhelmina model. The Bachelor fave signed with the agency in April 2015.

As for how Robby will do as a model? We'll let the pictures speak for themselves.
