Who is Alex “Achilles” King?

In 'The Courtship,' Alex will be one of the suitors. Alex is a San Diego-based online fitness coach. Achilles was born in the Dominican Republic and had an early interest in poetry and songwriting, which allowed him to express himself. He grew up reading Shakespeare and became interested in the actual art of romance as a result. Achilles' mother, who had brought him and his brothers to America, died in 2021. He now feels psychologically, physically, and spiritually ready to find the one lady who can make his life complete after taking the time to grieve. Achilles is looking for a long-term relationship with someone who will enable him to be himself, from impromptu gondola boat excursions to deep and serious intellectual chats.

Being a fitness freak, Alex keeps posting fitness-related content on his social media. Recently he posts a picture with the caption, "I have come to believe that many of us have hidden secrets, which are both very telling and very important to tell. They are telling due to perhaps the central paradox of our condition. What we as humans hunger more then anything else, is to be known in our full humanness, and yet that is often what we also fear. It’s good to remind yourself from time to time of who you are. Otherwise we run the risk of losing track of who we truly are, Instead of the highly edited version which we put forth in hopes that the world will find more acceptable than the real thing. Do you agree?"
