UPDATE: Despite earning a First Impression Rose during the premiere, Nick was cut the very next episode. At least you'll always have that first win, Nick!

Bachelorette Desiree Hartsock is about the embark on a beautiful love journey in the hopes of finding her soul mate (read: someone to mate with), and we have our eye on contestant Nick Mucci.

This 27-year-old hunk was born in Charlotte, North Carolina, but grew up in Rochester, New York. Word is, he’s been a leading man since way back — he was president of Sigma Tau Psi Fraternity at SUNY Geneseo. So, yeah, we expect him to spend his waking hours wandering around Bachelor Mansion doing keg stands and wearing a toga.

Nick currently works as an investment consultant for Vanguard and his dad is the CEO of a Fortune 500 company (Des' pupils just morphed into dollar signs), but his ultimate dream? To be a sports broadcaster. "My job would be to analyze football games and I’d have the best seat in the house," Nick mused during his ABC interview.

Despite the fact that Nick is busy being a businessman, he's all about finding true love. This lonely soul just wants to lock down a gal who he can be best friends with, and he's thrilled that Des is on the same page. "It’s nice to know the Bachelorette is looking for love too," Nick says. "So many times you find someone but realize you aren’t looking for the same thing."

In other news, it doesn't look like Nick is too much of a bad-boy, so don't worry — he won't break Des' heart! This dude has approximately zero tattoos (though fingers crossed that he'll get Des' face tramp-stamped on his back), his favorite author is John Grisham, and his favorite drink is "beer or red wine."

Hmmm, why do we have a feeling he'll be right at home in Bachelor Mansion?
