Katie Thurston's season of 'The Bachelorette' has officially begun and while the first episodes usually get too boring after a while since it's just introductions for the major part, there were some interesting moments as well. One of them was Thurston being very open and in control of what she wants and what she likes. She didn't play it safe and told it like it is, which felt like a breath of fresh air from what we've seen before. Thurston is a fitting successor to Clare Crawley and Tayshia Adams who were unabashedly themselves during the past season and went for what they wanted without fear of judgment. 

Coming back to Thurston, the sex-positive Bachelorette did put on a show for the prudes on night one. She signed up to date 35 men on national television and during the premiere night, she reiterated the fact that her journey is definitely going to end with an engagement. She was here to find her person and did make a couple of connections on night one. One such person was Justin Glaze from Baltimore, Maryland who also was the first man Thurston smooched. Here's what to know about him.

Who is Justin Glaze on Katie Thurston's season of 'The Bachelorette'?

First things first, this 26-year-old investment sales professional is the first man Thurston shared an extremely passionate kiss with and he also ends up being a part of the Top 4 this season. From the sneak peek of this season that played at the end of the premiere episode, they both appeared to be seated in a decorated carriage and we are placing our bets that it is the closing shot of this season, the one after their engagement. Our guess could be right or otherwise, what matters at this point is that there's a lot of chemistry between the two and it'd be interesting to see how the journey unfolds for the two of them.

Thurston comes from a broken family, her parents were divorced when she was still a kid and was raised by her mother. Glaze's parents on the other hand have been together for thirty years and their successful relationship is what he wishes to emulate but he just hasn't found "the one", reveals his bio. Glaze has everything going for him and he knows it to be the case. He is attractive, has a great job, and he also makes time painting to be in touch with his artistic side.

Glaze is a romantic and forming a strong intimate connection both emotionally and physically is important for him. About his ideal woman, Glaze's bio reveals he is looking for someone who is "passionate about fitness but also loves to enjoy a day barbecuing and a good bottle of Sauvignon Blanc." His definition of "the one" that he is seeking is "someone who is equally beautiful on the inside and out, trustworthy and committed to the idea of teamwork in a relationship." Let us know your thoughts about him as Katie Thurston's possible final pick in the comments below. 


'The Bachelorette' airs on Mondays at 8 pm ET on ABC.
