Who is Rodney Mathews?
Mathews is a 29-year-old sales representative from Rancho Cucamonga, California. He is a former NFL player, who aspired to pursue a career in the field, but unfortunately, an injury ended his dream. Although his athlete days are in the past, Rodney still maintains his physique and is into intermittent fasting.
He is just as happy with his current profession, that of a sales rep. While he is happy with his professional life, he aims to one day share his happiness with someone as like-minded as him; someone who has a fresh perspective, and is able to share a deep and meaningful connection.
Rodney is a family man and is very close to his mother. He has been open about her being his rock of Gibraltar throughout. Growing up, she was a single mother, and worked multiple jobs to raise her children. Rodney occasionally takes to Instagram to share sweet messages and pictures with her.
Will Michelle hit it off with Rodney? Time shall tell us! Stay tuned for new episodes on ABC from Tuesday, October 19, at 8:00 pm, ET.
