For all the Bachelorette fans out there, you know who Ivan is! He almost made it to the end of season 16, fell a little short but won the hearts of many. The Chicago-born and Texas-bred Aeronautical Engineer bonded with Bachelorette Tayshia Adams over being bi-racial as he is Filipino and Black. They shared conversations about both being minorities, the Black Lives Matter movement, and family values.
Ivan graduated from Texas Tech University in 2015, where he received a Bachelor of Science in Industrial Engineering. He has worked for Lockheed Martin and Northrup Grumman, helping build jets for the U.S. Military. But one day, he hopes to turn his love for high-end cars into a revenue stream by opening up an exotic car rental business.
He is a big family man and talks to his mom every day. We heard his mom is a great cook and her Filipino dishes are his favorite!
Ivan is the first Blasian contest in The Bachelorette and is proud to represent and showcase his roots. We are excited to see him on this season of the Bachelor in Paradise and can't wait to see if love is waiting for him at the beach!
