The 32-year-old hunk, who won the hearts of the American public after a brief stint on Desiree Hartsock's season on The Bachelorette, was revealed Monday to be the latest man chosen by the popular series to embark on his search for true love while the world watches.

Galavis was rumored to be a top pick for season 18 following Hartsock's Men Tell All episode, wherein the single dad made a surprisingly exceptional impression on the crowd despite his lack of screen time on The Bachelorette.
