UPDATE: Despite his best efforts, Jonathan was cut from the team on the Season 9 premiere episode, which aired May 27.
Desiree Hartsock is about to embark on a romantic televised love journey the likes of which we haven't seen since last season of The Bachelorette, and each of her contestants is dreamier than the next!
However, most of these dashing gents can step to the left, because we have our eye on Jonathan, a 26-year-old attorney from Hickory, North Carolina! Sure, Jonathan might not be a professional model like some of Desiree's heartthrobs, but dude stands at 6'1'' and wears a size 11 shoe. You know what they say, the bigger the feet, the bigger the... heart. Or something.
This Phi Delta Phi alum is a southern boy through and through, and his favorite bands are none other than Garth Brooks, Kings of Leon, and The Avett Brothers. Basically, if you're wearing a cowboy hat and spurs, Jonathan wants in on your action.
Jonathan seems like a perfect match for Desiree, and he even lists "adventure, laugh, and makeout" as his three favorite things to do on a date! Um, why do we have a feeling he'll be a natural on The Bachelorette?
However, Jonathan has some questionable deal breakers when it comes to dating. He refuses to get it on with ladies over 6' or under 5', and doesn't like family dinners, but the good news? We're pretty sure Desiree isn't a giant, and her family dinners are the most entertaining thing ever! Mostly thanks to the unique conversational skills of her charming brother, Nathaniel.
Do you think Jonathan will win Desiree's heart? Well, if you said yes, you're wrong.
