The next Bachelor is Joey Graziadei, and he is from Pennsylvania. Here are 7 things we know about the leading man.

The most recent season of The Bachelorette, with leading woman Charity Lawson, wrapped up on August 21, 2023. Joey was, unfortunately, unlucky in love during Charity’s season, but he’s about to have his turn handing out roses.

During The Bachelorette season finale, Joey met Charity’s parents, and her mother, Vicki, even said she thought he may be the one. Joey was also confident in the relationship between him and Charity.

In the final rose ceremony, when the bachelors are either sent home or one gets the girl, Joey was ready to propose. He gave a very swoon-worthy speech and started to drop down to one knee when Charity stopped him. GASP! Charity tearfully expressed to Joey that she had fallen deeper in love with someone else. Always the gentleman, Joey gave her a hug and consoled her. As he was driving away in the limo, truly heartbroken, he said “I want love bad.”

Graziadei officially got announced as the next Bachelor for Season 28 of the reality series later during The Bachelorette finale. He was a season favorite, so many were hopeful he’d be the next Bachelor after not ending up with Lawson.

Fans were really rooting for Joey. During his time on The Bachelorette, he proved himself to be kind, genuine, and funny. Reactions to his Bachelor status have been mostly positive, with comments on the Instagram announcement saying things like, “first bachelor I’ve been truly excited about,” and “this will be a great season.”

In an interview on The Bachelorette season finale, Joey was asked what he is looking for in a partner. “Someone that’s just themself that I can truthfully be a partner with. Someone that challenges me, I want someone that I can challenge. I just someone I can do life with.”

Joey wore his heart on his sleeve and now it’s time for him to find his forever. If you’d like to know more about Graziadei, including his ties to our area, we have you covered.
