Continue reading below to find out more about the man who made his impact on Thurston and ended up in the final lineup. While we might not know if he is the one who Thurston gave the final rose, but here's what we do know about Grippo which might surely make you smile a little wider because yes, this man is truly one of the best this season.
Who is Greg Grippo on 'The Bachelorette'?
Greg Grippo is a 27-year-old Marketing Sales Representative from Edison, New Jersey. His ABC bio describes him as "handsome, kind, vulnerable." Thurston made it clear in the trailer that she's looking for a husband and Grippo too is "serious about wanting to settle down." All of this clearly indicates that the two of them were a match waiting to happen and we are truly excited for Thurston at this point and cannot wait to see where their journey leads them.
Greg is a hopeless romantic but for his first date, he believes in doing outdoorsy stuff rather than the cliched dinner dates or a walk by the beach. Riding bikes, dancing, or going to a concert is his idea of fun instead. Greg does want a marriage, kids, and all the works eventually but before that, he's hellbent on traveling the world with his wife. Grippo has grown up watching his parents being successful in their relationship and he wants the same for himself. "Greg wants to find someone he can grow old with and treat like a queen, so the Bachelorette may just be swept off her feet!" his bio reads.
Here's some fun trivia about Grippo. He is super comfortable with his masculinity and does not feel ashamed or afraid to admit that he cries during movies. He might be the one with a calm demeanor but slow drivers really do test his patience. He is a basketball enthusiast and wishes to see Lebron James play in person someday. Grippo's Instagram page reveals he is a dog parent. He is also super comfortable with children and the majority of pictures on his timeline feature kids, his family, and friends.
'The Bachelorette' Season 17 will premiere on Monday, June 7 at 8 pm ET on ABC.
