UPDATE: Although Mikey tried his best to show Des he's more than just a piece of (super attractive) meat, she wasn't buying what the Italian Stallion was selling, and he was eliminated in Season 9, Episode 5 in Germany. 

Desiree Hartsock
is about to embark on a televised love journey the likes of which we haven't seen since, um, the last season of The Bachelorette. This brunette bombshell hopes to find the love of her life amongst a harem of potential husbands, and we have our eye on Mike Tenerelli. Basically, we're watching him Eye of Mordor style — and yes, we just made a Lord of the Rings reference.

Mike (or "Mikey" as his friends call him) hails from Chicago, Illinois, and currently lives in the small town of Lombard, where he owns and operates a training center called CrossFit Alpha Dog. That's right, dude works on his fitness, and as you might expect his body is off the charts amazing! By the way, CrossFit Alpha Dog recommends that you do things called "burpees" and "ball slams" in your workout. Just saying.

Of course, 30-year-old Mike hasn't always been a professional hunk (oh, wait — yes he has). Before getting into CrossFit, he worked as the Vice President of his family's plumbing company, Caldwell Plumbing Co., which was founded by Mike's father, Nick Tenerelli, back in 1973. When the toilets back up in Bachelor Mansion, Mike will totally be on the case!
