UPDATE: Brad McKinzie was eliminated on Season 9 Episode 4 when he failed to connect with Des in Atlantic City.
Nn-chh, nn-chh, nn-chh... Hear that sound? It’s the sound of DJ Brad McKinzie’s heart, beating in time to his love for Season 9 Bachelorette Desiree Hartsock. Yep, that’s right, ladies and gentleman. This hottie with the whitest teeth we’ve ever seen is vying for love on The Bachelorette, and he’s ac-counting on finding it! Oh haha, did we forget to mention that DJ Jazzy Brad is also an accountant? Because he is.
Chances are high this slashie from Colorado is making all the right moves (spoiler alert: probably not. Have you seen the show?) on his love journey, and we know why. For example, Brad gave some of the best answers overall to the ABC questionnaire. What’s his idea of the most romantic US city? Oh, That would be Seattle. Because “chances are high you will be dancing in the rain.” Uh. Next? Brad would also be a great companion to ladies of any age because, in his own words, he’s “basically obsessed with peanut butter.” Suh-woon.
But he’s not all just smooth lines and perfect snacks. He’s also a dad, guys. He and ex-girlfriend Brittnee have a darling son named Maddex, and we’re betting that his past relationship comes up when he and Des chat about love, life, and laughing.
While we bet the ladies love cool Brad, we’re a little bit concerned about homie’s self-confidence, in the smarts depart. “I love playing chess,” Brad says of his hobbies. “Really makes you think. However, I seem to be really bad.” So, let’s pretend his hobby is logic puzzles. This one goes like this: He likes things that require thought, but is terrible at those things. Therefore, analogies are tough.
Oh wait, our favorite answer this 27-year-old gave? When asked what he wishes ABC would have asked him, he wisely waxed, “I wish you would have asked me how I would approach a girl knowing 24 other men were trying to do the same thing.” Yes, yes, very interesting, Brad. And what would he have said?
“I think that's what makes the show so interesting because it's basically a fight for time and to be noticed. I don't have an answer for that. It would depend on the girl and what I thought would be most effective and memorable in my approach.” For example, in this case, giving vague answers that worry us.
