These men are single and ready to mingle! 

ABC’s The Bachelorette returned this week starring Clare Crawley’s quest to find love. Don’t worry—we won’t spoil the first episode, but let’s get to know a little more about two D.C.-area eligible bachelors that are featured on the latest season of The Bachelorette.

A post shared by Jeremy Higgins (@jeremy__higgins) on

Jeremy is 40 years old and is the TD Bank Vice President. He is the oldest contestant to ever make an appearance on The Bachelorette. He expressed that he’s ready to settle down, but women in D.C. are full of type-A personalities that he’s not very compatible with. He also mentioned that he’s had two serious relationships in the past where he had his heart broken. He’s still open to finding love and is looking for bold women “who aren’t afraid to challenge him when the opportunity presents itself.” In his free time, he volunteers and mentors children with disabilities. Here are some other fun facts about Jeremy: 

  • He taught himself how to skate and learned to paint during quarantine 
  • He’s not a fan of Instagram models 
  • “Witty banter” is his love language 
  • Halloween is his favorite holiday because he loves haunted attractions 

Jason Foster from Arlington, VA

Jason is 31 years old and a former pro football lineman for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. He currently works as an account manager in the area of IT staffing and solutions. Jason had a lot of fun during his NFL career, but he’s ready to settle down and have a serious relationship. In his free time, Jason loves kayaking on the Potomac River or visiting monuments in the area. He’s looking for a woman with “a great sense of humor and an amazing laugh.” He also wants a woman who can put him in his place when need be. Here are some fun facts about Jason:

  • He’s a huge animal and dog lover 
  • He loves dancing the "Electric Slide" 
  • He likes drinking his coffee in bed
