Emily Maynard’s Bachelorette Season 8 dudes all have one thing in common: muscles! The beefcake brigade continues with the rumored casting of Travis Pope. Like Doug Clerget and Ryan Bowers, Travis has the build of a meathead and the resume of a successful businessman.

Travis, 30, graduated from Mississippi State University in 2004, according to Reality Steve. Travis works as an account executive for The Clarion Ledger newspaper.

This isn’t his first attempt at a reality show — and this is where things get kinda word; Travis and his then-fiancée, Lauren Jones, pitched a TV series based on their professional and personal lives, entitled “Chasin Dreams With Lauren and Travis.”

Now, Travis will be chasin’ dreams with Emily Maynard! Wonder how Lauren feels about that… Especially seeing as how we know Travis made it all the way to Croatia!
