UPDATE: Unfortunately, Nick's magic didn't wow Des and he was eliminated during the first episode.
Stop everything you're doing — Bachelorette Desiree Hartsock has a magician living in her man hive. Meet Nick Roy, a 26-year-old magician / tailor from Ridgefield, Connecticut who just got his "street performer’s license." Um, yes, yes a thousand times yes!
Apparently Nick does a lot of "metal bending" and can "make stuff float," which is sure to impress our girl Des. In fact, Nick seems pretty confident that ladies love men who can do magic.
"I do a gag in which I say, 'There’s no way I can know your phone number, right? Write it down on this piece of paper.' So they write it down, I put the paper in my pocket and move on to something else," Nick tells Time Out Chicago. "They’re like, 'Wait, what?!'"
Wow, hopefully Nick tries this move when he gets out of the limo and meets Des, because our minds = blown.
In other news Nick is a religious man, and rocks a giant cross on his right bicep. He's also extremely fit and healthy, eats "nuts, fruits, and carrots" on the regular (OMG, he's a squirrel), and spends his free-time reading Men's Health and Genii. Which is a magic magazine, obviously. How could you even ask?
We have a feeling Desiree and Nick will be a match made in sleight-of-hand heaven, especially because he doesn't like "high maintenance label whores" and is a family man! Nick describes himself as a Momma's Boy, and says he and his mom talk every day on the phone. "I love her the most, because she is the most loving and thoughtful person in my world," he muses. Yikes, get in line, Des!
Want to know if Nick makes it to Desiree's final four contenders? Well, tough. Because he doesn't.
