Is 'The Bachelorette's Nayte Olukoya The Perfect Specimen?

Ahead of Michelle's Bachelorette premiere on Tuesday, I did what any normal fan would do... I read each Bachelorette contestant bio thoroughly so I knew what I was in for. I have seen the spoilers, the tweets, and the Bachelor rumors, but what I hadn't seen was a bio that seemed so lovingly obsessed with one man... that was until I read about Nayte Olukoya on ABC.

Now,'s contestant bios are supposed to be a neutral playing field where we can learn about the men vying for Michelle's heart, warts and all. I wanna know about their strengths (the tight-knit family that wears matching pajamas for Christmas) and their weaknesses (afraid of loving again after being left at the altar). I want to know they love chocolate and are afraid of seagulls. That they have a third nipple and a soft side for the old man from Up. That's usually what you get, at least. But not Nayte. Here's what we're working with when it comes to Nayte:

When you walk into a room, it's hard not to notice Nayte. He has a smile that sparkles like the stars, he is always the life of the party; and to boot, he is a 6-foot, eight-inch Adonis of a man. Nayte doesn't have trouble meeting women, but as he edges closer to 30, he's more focused on finding a long-lasting relationship that will go the distance. His dream woman is outgoing, spontaneous and has enough swagger of her own to keep up with him. He's looking for a connection filled with heat and for someone who will be just as passionate about him as he is about her. Nayte is looking for a teammate for life and is confident that Michelle may just be the one he's been waiting for.

A smile that sparkles like the stars. Enormous. The life of the party. An Adonis of a man. Women love him, but he wants something serious. He's got swagger and wants someone with her own. He wants passion and he wants a partner. He wants Michelle.

And to give you an idea of just how much of a juxtaposition Nayte's bio is from bios past, check out this line from Ed's bio during Clare/Tayshia's season, which I don't think anyone read as a positive thing: "Ed is looking to find a woman who has natural beauty without looking overly fake."

When it comes to the red flag emoji meme going around last week, Nayte seemingly has zero of them. The only things not painting him as a perfect specimen, according to ABC, are these fun facts below his bio. And that's really just because Edible Arrangement famously sucks.

- Nayte dreams of visiting the Taj Mahal.
- Nayte can't dance to save his life.
- Nayte likes Edible Arrangements.

Now we just wait to see if Nayte can live up to not only Michelle's expectations for a partner, but ABC's expectations based on this bio.
