Who Is 'Bachelorette' Contestant Will?


Bachelor Nation has been blessed with back-to-back nights of action this week on The Bachelorette.

Going into Tuesday night's episode, there are only 12 guys left: Bryan, Dean, Eric, Peter, Adam, Matt, Alex, Josiah, Anthony, Kenny, Lee, and Will.

Will won the group date rose on Monday night's episode, which honestly kind of shocked everyone seeing as Rachel and Peter made out in the hot tub for most of the night.

Rachel really did seem genuinely impressed by Will's handball skills, though, so apparently she has a thing for athletes.


I guess it's time to get to know Will Gaskins. Besides being good at handball, here's what you need to know about the 28-year-old:

1. He Played Basketball In College

It's no wonder Will was so good at handball -- he played basketball at Ithaca College, where, according to his LinkedIn, he majored in politics.

2. He Lives In Miami

According to his Instagram, Will moved to Florida in 2015, but it looks like he still has lots of friends and family in New York.

3. He's From A Military Family

On his LinkedIn profile, Will writes,

4. He Can Cook

He often posts photos of his dinner to his Instagram page.

5. He's Got A Sense Of Humor

We first met Will when he exited the limo on night one as Steve Urkel. So we know he can make Rachel laugh, and we also know he's a true '90s kid at heart.

6. He's Team DeMario

After everything that happened with Bachelor in Paradise, Will couldn't keep quiet about the situation involving DeMario Jackson, who was also on this season of The Bachelorette, and Corinne Olympios. In a lengthy Instagram post, Will made it clear he stands behind his fellow contestant, writing,

Time will tell if Will can win over Rachel's heart, but at the very least, he seems to have enjoyed his time on the show and made friends with the other contestants.
