When you've heard about Garrett Yrigoyen from The Bachelorette, you probably heard that he got major backlash for "liking" racist posts on Instagram. You probably also heard that he received Becca Kufrin's first-impression rose. And you may have heard that he's suspected to go far on the ABC show. With so much buzzing about the 29-year-old, we decided to do some digging to find out more about the greatly talked-about contestant . . . including what really happened with his ex-wife.
1. He lives in Reno, NV.
Garrett is originally from the small town of Manteca, CA, but he now resides in Nevada.
2. He's a medical sales rep.
The former third baseman earned his degree from the University of Nevada.
3. He has a brother, Jeffrey.
And as you would expect, he's really good looking. Jeffrey is an EMS helicopter pilot and lives in San Diego.
4. He's a real outdoorsman.
From fishing to hiking to snowshoeing, this guy isn't afraid of an outdoor adventure.
5. He was married for six months.
Garrett explained to Becca on his one-on-one date that he fell in love right after college. The two were dating for a year and a half when they got engaged, and then got married a year after that. When Becca asked for details on his divorce with Kayla Cunningham, Garrett offered a simple, "one thing led to another and we got divorced." But according the divorce papers acquired by Radar Online, the couple "state they are incompatible for marriage" and "there is no possibility of reconciliation." They were married on Sept. 19, 2015 in Newcastle, CA and divorced just six months later.
