Lee, a 30-year-old singer and songwriter from Nashville, TN, was definitely a troublemaker on Season 13 of The Bachelorette, but he owned his behavior and loved every second of making other guys squirm.
Lee found ways to stir the pot and poke fun at his competition, especially Kenny Layne, but he was sweet and seemingly sincere during his conversations with Rachel. During a two-on-one date with Kenny, however, Rachel determined Lee had to go home because she trusted Kenny more.
