Who is Thomas Jacobs? 'The Bachelorette' fans say real estate broker will stir up DRAMA
Katie Thurston's season of 'The Bachelorette' premiered on June 7 and the audiences already seem to have singled out their favorites and the villains from the lineup of 35 men who showed up. But there's one man who falls in both categories after the premiere night episode. Thomas Jacobs from Poway, California, stepped out of the limousine looking much better than he did in his introductory photo on ABC's website. This left the audience fawning on him as well as Thurston who let out a little squeak as he walked inside the mansion after meeting her on the driveway.
Jacobs started off as a fan favorite but later on in the episode, he made a couple of comments that didn't go down well with some of the suitors as well as the fans watching from home. He was immediately dubbed an "a**hole" for his low-key arrogant attitude. Before we give away spoilers about his journey with Thurston, here's what you need to know about him.
Who is Thomas Jacobs?
Jacobs is a 28-year-old real estate broker from California and his bio states that he is looking for "true companionship" on the show. His dream woman is "beautiful, athletic, mature and ready to be his partner in life". Jacobs loves to cook as his love language is food and he expresses his affection by bringing loved ones their favorite dish. His beloved city is San Diego and one of his favorite ways to show someone around is through a thoroughly planned tour of the best burritos, burgers and brunch the city has to offer.
Jacobs did make an impression on the audiences with his overall appearance but he also received a lot of flak from Bachelor Nation for giving off a vibe that he might stir up drama during the season. "I hope I'm wrong, but I feel like Thomas is gonna end up being an asshole #TheBachelorette," tweeted a fan. "Thomas is gonna be a PROBLEM I can feel it #TheBachelorette," wrote another fan. "Thomas is 1000% going to be a douche this season and i can’t wait to watch it play out #TheBachelorette," tweeted another. "Is it just me or does Thomas give off the exact same vibes as the villain fiance from titanic? #TheBachelorette," read another tweet.

Reality Steve revealed Thomas Jacobs is the 'villain'
Reality Steve always has all the dope about 'The Bachelor' franchise and its many spinoffs and the blogger has revealed just how long Jacobs will last in the season. "Basically, he’s the guy that ruffles some feathers early on with the other guys. I believe he gets an early rose, thus making him look like an early favorite, that quickly wears out his welcome with some of the others and Thomas ends up getting eliminated in like episode 3 or 4," the blogger revealed. Let us know your thoughts about Jacobs in the comments below.
'The Bachelorette' airs Mondays at 8 pm ET on ABC.
