Who’s the man behind the mask? None other than Brooks Forester of Bachelorette Season 9. Brooks recently joined Twitter and has yet to enter the elite club of certified accounts (love interest Desiree Hartsock’s already passed the blue checkmark test).

Don’t worry though. Fellow Bachelorette Season 9 contestant Mike Garofola was on the case to make sure @brooksforester was who he said.

After Brooks tweeted a photo of himself behind a plastic nose and glasses, Mike confirmed the identity of the Salt Lake City sales rep/model. Well, kind of confirmed it.

“I’m so proud of you for having the courage to post your post-op surgery photo. Love the new nose,” said Mike, who’s in the running for this season’s resident joker. The New Yorker is always up for a good time, especially if it’s caught on camera. After all, he’s no stranger to finding love on TV.

We’re so glad Mike was only teasing Brooks. We’d hate if anything happened to his beautiful face and we have a hunch Des wouldn’t be very happy, either.

Expect more lively banter between the two contestants as the season gets going. We’re hoping for at least a few more stunts.
