If you're here, you'll know that the 2020 season of The Bachelorette (opens in new tab), much like everything else in 2020, did not go to plan. Clare Crawley, the original Bachelorette, left her own season to be with one of her contestants, the extremely handsome Dale Moss (opens in new tab). That's when Tayshia Adams, (opens in new tab) a fan favorite from previous seasons of The Bachelor and Bachelor In Paradise, stepped in to take over from Crawley. When she left, Crawley was down to 16 men—you can see her full cast list here (opens in new tab)—and producers added four more men for Adams specifically. This list is the 20 men that are competing for Adams' heart, down from the original 42 that producers cast for this season, and the 31 that ultimately appeared on Crawley's season. Whew. Are you ready?
Smith, from Indianapolis, IN, is a fitness coach at Deuce Gym (opens in new tab). He's actually one of the bachelors who was brought on later to Crawley's season, part of recasting that was done for Crawley once the coronavirus pandemic hit. His Instagram is here (opens in new tab). You can learn even more about him here (opens in new tab).
Jordan is 37, from Atlanta, GA, and was one of the coronavirus recasting members. He is, apparently, another one to watch (opens in new tab) for Adams' season—more info at that link, but fans have some theories. His Instagram is here (opens in new tab).
Moynes is 29 and from Hamilton, Ontario, Canada. He was part of the original cast (i.e., his name was announced in February) who made it through recasting. He does have Instagram (opens in new tab).
Nick is from Walnut Creek, CA, and is apparently a tech consultant. He was a part of the recasting for Crawley. His Instagram is here (opens in new tab).
Jackson is 26 and from Scottsdale, AZ (hometown listed as San Diego, CA). He graduated from Arizona State University and is—get this—a spin instructor (opens in new tab). I love it!! He was part of the original cast who made it through recasting. His Instagram is here (opens in new tab).

Look at that 'stache! Erb is from Long Beach, CA (home now listed as Tulsa, OK), and is 25. He has a twin, and is a traveling nurse. His Instagram is here (opens in new tab). He was a member of the original cast who made it past recasting but wasn't a part of Crawley's original cast—meaning he was brought on when Adams came.

Robertson, 30, is from La Jolla, CA. He lives in San Diego, per his Instagram (opens in new tab). He was a part of the recast but didn't make it on Crawley's season—so he was brought on for Adams specifically. He might be important, if spoilers are any indication (opens in new tab)!
