Greg Grippo is a contestant on the current season of ABC’s “The Bachelorette.” Not only did Grippo receive the First Impression rose, but it’s also been widely speculated that he gets the very first one-on-one date with Katie Thurston.
Grippo is an early favorite on the season. Not only did he catch Thurston’s eye — and he even tugged at her heart strings when he gave her a pasta necklace made by his niece on night one — but the internet seems to have fallen in love with him, too.
“Officially putting in my next application for the bachelor if it’s Greg,” one Instagram user commented on one of his recent posts.
“Greg we all have a crush on you,” added another.
“Greg is the full package. He’s handsome, kind, vulnerable and serious about wanting to settle down. Greg considers himself a hopeless romantic, and a perfect first date would be something active like riding bikes, dancing or going to a concert. Greg wants to travel the world with his wife before having kids, of which he says he wants to have at least six! Greg is also extremely close with his family,” his bio on ABC’s website reads, in part.
Grippo will more than likely be on television for a few more weeks. For spoilers on just how far he goes on Thurston’s season of “The Bachelorette,” click here.
