Almost every season of a Bachelor Nation show includes a couple of men with the same name, giving fans memorable monikers like Tyler C. that stick beyond the show. This season, Justin Young doesn’t just share a name with a Bachelor In Paradise contestant; he also shares a face with one. His twin, Joey Young, is also hoping to find love. In an effort to be less confused this season, here’s everything you need to know about Justin Young.

Based on Justin’s Instagram, he and his brother seem inseparable, doing everything from high school, to college, to The Bachelorette — and now Bachelor In Paradise — together. Fans can hope that at least their types aren’t the same so the twins don’t end up going after the same woman. Justin’s ABC bio might have given fans a little hint about the twins’ dynamic on the show, though, by defining Joey’s profession as “Twin” and Justin’s as “The Other Twin.” This slightly shady move could point to which twin goes further on the show, or it could just be ABC’s attempt at humor.

Although very little is known about how the season will play out, one thing’s for certain: The show is clearly going to make twin jokes as long as both guys are on the show.

Justin Young’s Bachelor Nation Journey

Justin and Joey arrived in the Bachelor Nation pantheon on Gabby and Rachel’s season of The Bachelorette. However, Season 19 of the dating show didn’t go so well for them, as both Bachelorettes decided to send both twins home on Night 1.

But the twins are getting a chance to redeem themselves on Bachelor In Paradise. They arrived together on the Nov. 1 episode in hopes of sticking it out a bit longer on the beach than they did at the Bachelor Mansion.

Justin Young’s Job

There is no publicly available information about Justin’s job, but he did just graduate from Quinnipiac University in 2021, so he might be looking for work or hoping to keep his job and his time on The Bachelorette separate.

Justin Young’s Family & Hometown

Justin grew up in Brookfield, Connecticut, stayed in the state for college, and now lives in New York City with Joey.

Justin Young’s Age

Justin and Joey have stirred up some comments online because of their age — they’re 24, among the youngest of the season’s contestants.

Justin Young’s Instagram

Like Joey, Justin’s Instagram is essentially a highlight reel of all the clubbing and partying the twins get up to in Miami, New York, and New Jersey. Story highlights show Justin has even been clubbing with his lowkey doppelgänger, Shawn Mendes.

Being a party animal has certainly never excluded anyone from having a good run on Bachelor In Paradise, so Justin and his twin may be just the dose of fun this season needs.
