Meet Tessa Tookes, Bachelor 26 Contestant
Tessa is a People Team Specialist currently based in New York. The bio in her profile on ABC’s website says that she “is such a romantic that she is often accused of being cinematic”. ABC website also adds, “when asked how she feels about love, she says ‘there’s a moment to be extra and romance is IT!'”.
Tessa sees vulnerability as an attractive feature and loves men who are not scared of being vulnerable. She is looking for a man who is “kind, inclusive, and always pushing themselves to be better”. Lastly, she also wants to find someone who loves music as much as she does.
Tessa’s favorite hobby is bowling. And she is a huge Stevie Nick fan. Funnily, she is scared of red fruits like apples, grapes, raisins, etc.
Now to move to her journey in the Bachelor. According to Reality Steve, Tessa does not reach the final three in Clayton Echard’s Bachelor season. Reality Steve predicted that it would be Gabby Windey, Rachel Recchia, and Susie Evans who will make the final three of this season of The Bachelor.
Of course, Reality Steve has been wrong in the past. But even if he is right and Tessa does not make it to the final three, you can “tune in for a vibe”.
