  • Casey Woods is a contestant on season 8 of ‘Bachelor in Paradise,’ and was part of the first group of arrivals on the beach.
  • He previously looked for love with Michelle Young on season 18 of ‘The Bachelorette.’
  • When he’s not on reality television, Casey works full-time while also pursuing his passion as a musician.

Casey Woods gave his rose to Brittany Galvin at the first rose ceremony on season 8 of Bachelor in Paradise. However, the two have not connected on a more romantic level in the time since then, and with the girls now holding the power, Casey is unsure whether he’ll receive a rose of his own this week. While Casey has formed a lot of good friendships on BIP, he hasn’t quite found the romantic connection he’s been looking for just yet.

Two girls already left the beach ahead of rose ceremony number two, so the number of men is highly outweighing the number of women remaining ahead of the Oct. 17 episode. We’ll have to wait and see if Casey is able to form a last minute connection in time. Learn more about the 37-year-old below.
