Occupation: Rehab counselor, musician
Hometown: Austin, Texas
Michael Nance is a long-locked, soft-spoken rehab counselor from Austin, Texas. He’s one of the 25 guys competing for Emily Maynard’s heart on The Bachelorette Season 8, and judging from his various social media profiles, he’s not only a sweetheart — he’s also a talented musician with an avid fan base. In 2010, Michael managed to get his entire album funded on Kickstarter.
Michael attended Texas A&M University (to see a photo of what he looked like in college, click here), graduating in 2009 with a degree in biomedical science. When he’s not recording soulful jams, Michael’s working as a rehab counselor at MAP Accountability Services, an organization assisting addicts in the difficult recovery process. Back in August 2011, Michael tweeted this photo of his efforts at work, adding the hashtag: #imakeworkasfunaspossible.
