What a year 2020 has been and we are only halfway through. Everything kinda came to a stop just as Pilot Pete's season of "The Bachelor" on ABC came to an end and Clare Crawley's season of "The Bachelorette" was about to begin.

As we anticipated Clare's journey to find love, we learned that a man from Brooklyn Park, Minnesota would be competing. His name is Josh Elledge and he is 31 years old.

Reality Steve did a breakdown of all the contestants that were supposed to be on the show and we learned that Josh Account Exec at Apex Systems. Attended Gustavus Adolphus College and played hockey there while getting a Bachelors degree in Biology in 2011. Before his Instagram went private on March 1st, pictures could be seen of Josh in Vikings gear, traveling a lot, and has a dog.

When production was called off for Clare's season, it was unsure if Josh E. would be coming back when it resumed, and it is now confirmed that he is! Everyone cross your fingers and hope that Josh can use his Minnesota manly charm to make Clare fall in love with him at the resort they are filming the whole season at.

We are all rooting for you Josh, bring home that final rose!
