'The Bachelorette': Clint Eastwood's grandson Lowell 'LT' Murray IV is on Season 18
With Season 18 of 'The Bachelorette' off to a dramatic start, the premiere was all about making the right impression, to receive the all-important rose. Michelle Young's men definitely got creative -- from mini fire trucks to the real deal and even school buses, everyone tried something peculiar to stand out.
But not everyone who made a good first impression landed up with a rose. There was Ryan Fox with his infamous playbook that got him kicked out of the show and even JoMarri Gable, who had the gun show on display with his sleeveless suit didn't manage to make a mark. But then, there was also LT who made quite an impression on Michelle, seeing that he made his entrance in a tux, but swapped his pants for a speedo. He caught her attention and even scored a rose that night.

She later put Murray up for adoption. LT even spoke to Radar about his family situation. "They met when she was in her thirties. [Laurie’s] mother never told him she was pregnant or spoke to him again." he explained. Since then, Eastwood has spent time with the Murrays, leading to a great relationship between them. "All I would say is that he’s been a great father to my mom, and always great to me and my family whenever we see him." LT added.
