Usually, the contestants who don’t get the first impression rose on Bachelorette are sent home. But not Kirk Bryant. Despite failing to impress both of the ladies on the 19th installment of the popular dating show, Kirk stayed for a while.
So, who is he? Keep reading this Kirk Bryant Bio to learn all about him.
Kirk Bryant On Bachelorette
Stepping up the game, The Bachelorette season 19 included two bachelorettes — Gabby Windey and Rachel Recchia — who agreed to share the spotlight while also keeping their friendship above everything else.
This was the first time the dating franchise ever had two female participants. So, to keep things even, the pursuers’ size was also increased to 32 men. And there appeared our star, Kirk Bryant.
For those who don’t know, Gabby and Rachel were the runner-ups from Clayton Echard’s season of The Bachelor.
Vying for the heart of the bachelorettes, Kirk stepped out of the limo with a cheesy motivational speech — similar to that of a coach’s speech to his team. Certainly, this wasn’t motivational to the leads at all and they giggled the whole time. But despite not being able to impress the leads and get that first impression rose, Kirk got a few more chances in the next few eps, which he blew it off again.
On the other hand, Koy and Corbin, who didn’t receive a rose either, left the show on day 1.
So, if not Kirk, who made it to the bachelorettes’ final four? Well, Justin, Erich, Jason, and Johnny were Gabby’s top 4, while Aven, Tyler, Tino, and Zach made it to Rachel’s final four.
Also, in case you missed the earlier episodes, James rejected Rachel’s rose saying, “I’m sorry. “I’m here for Gabby,” while Tino received Rachel’s first rose and Mario got his first rose from Gabby.
Joining Kirk in a quest for love this season were his co-stars — Alec Garza, Aven Jones, Brandan Hall, Chris Austin, Colin Farrill, Erich Schwer, Ethan Kang, Hayden Markowitz, Jacob Rapini, James Clarke, Jason Alabaster, Joey Young, John Anderson, Johnny DePhillipo, Jordan Helman, Justin Budfuloski, Justin Young, Logan Palmer, Matt Labagh, Mario Vassall, and more.
