He’s the guy you couldn’t help but fall in love with on JoJo’s season of ‘The Bachelorette.’ Luke Pell is one of the front-runners to become the next Bachelor, so we’re rounded up 5 keys things you NEED to know about him!
1. He’s a war veteran.
Luke served in the military for 5 years. He was a U.S. Army officer and member of the 101st Airborne in Afghanistan. He spent his time as a “platoon leader, fire direction officer, fire support officer and finally as a battalion operations officer,” according to his LinkedIn profile. He left active duty as a Captain in 2012.
2. He can sing, too!
Is there anything Luke can’t do? When he’s not making everyone swoon on The Bachelorette, he’s singing! Luke’s in a band that recently performed at South By Southwest. He’s got two singles out on iTunes — “Tungsten Steel” and “Fall of Me.”
3. Apparently he’s a “party-starter.”
When asked if he would describe himself as “the party-starter,” “the wingman” or “the laid back one,” Luke said he’s the party-starter! He also says his three best attributes are competence, patience, empathy for others.
4. He’s admitted that he’s still in love with JoJo.
JoJo eliminated Luke right after the hometown dates, and it was one of the most devastating breakups of the season. Even though JoJo broke his heart, Luke still has feelings for her. “I still love her,” Luke told Chris Harrison on The Men Tell All. Don’t you just love how honest he is?
5. Luke is totally open to being the next Bachelor.
Luke would have no problem opening his heart again. He even teased to Chris that he was “ready to fall in love again.” After The Men Tell All special, Luke admitted that being the next Bachelor was a “possibility.” He told E! News, “I definitely would not pass on it!”
