Competing on 'The Bachelorette' is no easy feat. While there are no physical challenges, the emotional obstacle courses are plenty to make up for it. After all, it is not easy to compete with a hoard of men for the affection of one woman. But for a person like Michelle Young, it looks like 30 men are willing to try their chances.

Matt James might not have been the one for Michelle, but that has not stopped her from finding her happiness. Now, with her season, it's time to see if any of Michelle's men have what it takes to be the man of her dreams. And among these suitors is Jamie Skaar. Here's what we know about him.

Who is Jamie Skaar?

Jamie Skaar, or Jamie, as he is known on Season 18 of 'The Bachelorette', is a 32-year-old Biotech CEO from San Diego. As per his LinkedIn, Jamie has studied at the University of Washington, where he earned a Bachelor's Degree in Cognitive Psychology and Psycholinguistics. Prior to that, he attended Richmond, The American International University in London, where he studied International Business. He is the founder and Ceo of SanctuAire, which is an "indoor optimization system that mimics nature's purification process". 


What does his ABC bio say?

As per his ABC bio, "Jamie is a catch. He is a world traveler with a taste for all things and is the type of guy who will show up at the airport and let the ticketing agent decide his destination. Yes, he actually did that and had an amazing week in Uruguay! He has a great job, is extremely smart and has a healthy idea of exactly what he needs in a wife. Jamie is looking for someone to be his partner in this never-ending adventure called life. She should be independent, driven and always ready to head out for dinner at the newest local hot spot. For Jamie, life is about valuing cultural experiences and making memories, so hopefully, Michelle is up for the ride!"

Turns out, Jamie isn't kidding when it comes to his love for travel, seeing that his bio also mentions that he traveled to Ecuador just to try their chocolate. Unlike Michelle, who loves a good game of Basketball, Jamie's favourite game is chess. And for someone who claims to have never watched an epiosde of reality TV in his life, he is now all set to star in one himself!
