After being booted off by Bachelorette Desiree Hartsock after the Hometown Dates, contestant Zak Waddell seemed completely heartbroken. Here he’d taken Des into his home, had his sister sing to her, even given her a ring, and now she says she’s just not that into it? Love stinks.

Not surprisingly, though, Zak has rebounded with a vengeance. The Texas-based drilling engineer recently shared a photo of him with his new catch. She’s a little on the short side, got big, beautiful eyes, and probably smells a bit in the sun. Sound fishy? It should after seeing what exactly Zak landed.

“Always kiss with your eyes closed...#kissing #fishing,” he wrote alongside a pic of him puckering up to the catch of the day. Oh to trade places with that fish.

Beyond our own designs on Zak’s heart, it’s reassuring he hasn’t found anyone new quite yet seeing as he’s one of the top contenders for the next Bachelor (that is if the rumors about Juan Pablo prove false).

Even if he doesn’t get the gig, this outdoorsy hunk shouldn’t have any trouble reeling in someone new to love. You know what they say? There are plenty more fish in the sea.
