From weirdos to hunks, the gang's all here.

Back in college, I watched The Bachelor religiously. My roommates and I would talk about the contestants, pick our favorites, and guess how long each relationship would last. When I graduated, and went into the real world, I forgot about my pal Chris Harrison and his media empire. But right around the time Twitter became a thing, I rediscovered my lost love.

This is not a coincidence. If you are on Twitter Monday nights, your feed is most likely full of #TheBachelor, #TheBachelorette, or #BachelorInParadise content—depending on the time of year. Bachelor fans flock to Twitter to make jokes, comment on the contestants, or make fun of Chris Harrison when he promises for the millionth time that this is the “most shocking season ever.”

Bachelor Twitter is the best Twitter. It is, after all, where I met one of my closest friends, who later turned into my podcasting partner. (Our podcast is, of course, about The Bachelor.)

Social media plays a huge role in the show, and while it never ends up with the final rose, it is always in the hearts of the fans. Every season, I scour the Web to find the contestants on social media. What happens if one of them slips up and shares a spoiler? Do they have incriminating posts? It's a vital companion to an era wherein just watching a favorite TV series is not enough. With the new season premiering tonight, I've compiled this handy list of JoJo Fletcher’s bachelors—and where to find them on social media.


The Bachelorette/ABC

Alex Woytkim 

Alex is a laid-back marine who once saved a man from a burning car by ripping the door off. I like his chances. You can find him on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram.

The Bachelorette/ABC

Ali Zahiri

Ali is a bartender who is afraid of bugs and will do anything for love. You can find him on Twitter and Instagram.

The Bachelorette/ABC

Brandon Howell

According to Brandon's official ABC bio, he is a humble hipster with a great sense of humor. You can find him on Twitter and Facebook

The Bachelorette/ABC

Chad Johnson

Chad loves The Notebook and says his greatest achievement to date is being born handsome. Well, then. You can find him on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram

The Bachelorette/ABC

Chase McNary

Chase once went sky-diving on a date, so he should be pretty game for any date that JoJo plans. You can find him on Twitter and Facebook

The Bachelorette/ABC

Christian Bishop

Christian loves The Lord of the Rings, Star Wars, and The Matrix. His mom is his best friend. If it doesn't work out for him and JoJo, Christian, call me. You can find him Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram

The Bachelorette/ABC

Coley Knust

Coley once had a girl try to move in with him after a week of dating, so he is used to relationships moving fast. That will serve him well on The Bachelorette. You can find him on Instagram

The Bachelorette/ABC

Derek Peth

Derek is afraid of fluffy kittens. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯. You can find him on YouTube.

The Bachelorette/ABC

Daniel Maguire

Daniel is a male model who is not romantic. Not sure how that will work out for him with JoJo. You can find him on Facebook and Instagram

The Bachelorette/ABC

Evan Bass

Evan is an erectile dysfunction expert who doesn't like girls with chipped nail polish... You can find him on Facebook and Instagram.

The Bachelorette/ABC

Grant Kemp

Grant has saved a life and loved the original Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie. He does not like listening to girls talk about Harry Potter. I am torn about Grant. You can find him on Twitter and Instagram

The Bachelorette/ABC

Jake

Jake is a landscape architect who wishes he could fly so he didn't have to deal with L.A. traffic. I have searched everywhere for Jake on social media, but he seems to be laying low. 

The Bachelorette/ABC

James Fuertes

James left his job as a chiropractor to pursue his dream of owning a boxing gym. You can find him on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram

The Bachelorette/ABC

James S.

James S. (there are three dudes named "James" this season) is the contestant that I am most excited about. On his official bio, his job is "Bachelor Superfan." Me too, James! For a superfan, he is impossible to find on social media. How can you be a superfan if you don't tweet??

The Bachelorette/ABC

James Taylor

James Taylor is, what else, a singer. He loves cold beer and making girls smile. You can find him on Instagram

The Bachelorette/ABC

Jonathan Hamilton

Jonathan is a technical sales rep who doesn't like vegetables and thinks gluten allergies are not real. You can find him on Facebook and Instagram.

The Bachelorette/ABC

Jordan Rodgers

The wildest thing Jordan has ever done in the bedroom? "Try to hang a TV on the wall without directions or a stud finder." Clearly, he has a great sense of humor. Oh, and his is NFL star Aaron Rodgers's brother, so holidays at his house are guaranteed to be a good time. You can find him on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram

The Bachelorette/ABC

Luke Pell

Luke is a war veteran who will do anything for love and loves to get the party started. You can find him on Twitter

The Bachelorette/Twitter

Nick Benvenutti

Nick is an electrical engineer whose favorite magazine is Ducks Unlimited. You can find him on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram

The Bachelorette/ABC

Nick Sharp

Nick is an Eagle scout who likes The Sandlot and dislikes scary cheeses. Does blue cheese count as scary? Because I hate that stuff. You can find him on Instagram

The Bachelorette/ABC

Peter Medina

Peter was once a "sk8er boi" who wishes he could live in the Mesozoic era, so he could see dinosaurs. You can find him on Facebook and Instagram

The Bachelorette/ABC

Robby Hayes

Robby is a former competitive swimmer who loves dressing up for dates. You can find him on Twitter and Instagram

The Bachelorette/ABC

Sal DeJulio

Sal is an operations manager who egged a teacher's house when he was in high school. You can find him on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram

The Bachelorette/ABC

Vinny Ventiera

Vinny is a barber who doesn't have tattoos because he is afraid of his mom. He once had frosted tips like Justin Timberlake. You can find him on Twitter and Facebook.

The Bachelorette/ABC

Wells Adams

Wells is a radio DJ who has done a shark dive, but refuses to get a cat. You can find him on Twitter and Facebook.

The Bachelorette/ABC

Will Haduch

Will is a civil engineer who's favorite dance move is called “Bernie-ing.” It is loosely based on the '80s classic Weekend at Bernie’s. I hope he busts this move out this season. You can find him on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram


After taking a look at these guys on social media, I think I have my favorites. Will they get roses? If they don't, maybe we'll get some epic meltdowns on Twitter. A girl can dream.
