You don't have to dig too deep through Twitter to find praise for The Bachelorette's Mike Johnson, a smiling contestant who listens attentively to Hannah Brown and calls out misbehaving men on their problematic acts. Season 15 of The Bachelorette has just barely reached its halfway point, but fans are already campaigning for Mike as Bachelor. It's about time for an African-American Bachelor, but before viewers think ahead to a entirely new Bachelor cycle, who is Mike on The Bachelorette?
The 31-year-old portfolio manager won over fans immediately with his intro in the Season 15 premiere. After comparing his love life to the titular message of Home Alone, Mike took cameras to visit his great-grandmother, the first woman he fell in love with. His grandma advised him to listen to Hannah, and Mike quipped, "OK, I've got big ears for a reason."
The easy joke foreshadowed how smoothly Mike slid into viewers' hearts throughout the rest of the premiere. He focused his one-on-one time on how Hannah was feeling, which is essentially how Mike has acted as the season continues. In addition to calling attention to concerning behavior from contestants Cam and Luke P., the Texas native has kept Hannah's well-being in mind.
It's still too early to predict whether Mike will walk away from The Bachelorette with a polished Bachelor edit, but until then, here's what you should know about him.
