Daisy Kent took the longest to fall in love with Joey Graziadei, but now she appears to be all in and fighting for his final rose on The Bachelor's 28th season.

Daisy is a 25-year-old account executive from Becker, Minnesota.


Joey was "blown away" and captivated by Daisy when they first met, and their feelings continued to grow for each other throughout The Bachelor season.

After Joey received the stamp of approval from Daisy's family during hometown dates, Joey said he felt "whole" in Daisy's presence, and Daisy said never felt so sure about a man in her entire life.

The pair then expressed their love to one another during their overnight Fantasy Suite date.

According to a preview of The Bachelor finale, Joey admits that Daisy understood him to his core and loved him for who he is, but he couldn't deny how strong of a physical connection he had with Kelsey.

Until The Bachelor viewers can find out whom Joey picked as his winner and whether he's happily engaged on the finale airing on Monday, March 25 at 8PM ET/PT on ABC, let's get to know this bachelorette a little better right now.

Below is a list of 14 facts Reality TV World has compiled about The Bachelor bachelorette Daisy Kent.

Daisy grew up on a Christmas tree farm in Minnesota

Daisy says her childhood was like a storybook growing up on a Christmas tree farm.

Daisy comes from a big, loving family. She is the middle of five kids, all of whom she's very close to, and her parents have been married for over 30 years.

Daisy's parents have a relationship that provides a blueprint for the kind of love Daisy wants to find for herself.

Daisy said she's ready for a man who will put her first and be there for her no matter what. She'd like a partner who is loyal, adventurous and family oriented.

Daisy worked her way up in a company called Jungo for well over three years

Jungo is a mortgage software company. She began working for Jungo in September 2020 as a customer relationship specialist.

Daisy continued to get promoted as a Tier 1 Specialist in May 2021, as a Strategic Account Manager in January 2022, and then as an Account Executive in April 2023.

Prior to joining this company, she held down a job as a marketing assistant and content creator for The Social Tale.

Daisy used to picture herself as an anchor on the news

Daisy went to San Diego State University from 2017 to 2021, and she made the Dean's List in 2017 and 2018. She studied Communications, Digital and Social Media.

Daisy initially wanted to be in broadcasting and report the news, but then she started losing her hearing and realized it wasn't what she wanted to do anymore.


Daisy was part of a sorority during her college years

"I actually wasn't going to rush, and then my freshman-year roommate convinced me to," Daisy recalled of her time at San Diego State in a recent TikTok video.

"I was like, 'Okay, I'll go through with the process.' And then the first day, I almost dropped out of recruitment, but I ended up doing it."

Daisy also traveled abroad during her college years and took classes in Barcelona, Spain, in 2020.

Daisy is still "insanely close" to her entire group of college girlfriends.

The Bachelor bachelorette lost her hearing as a teenager

When Daisy was 11-years-old, she started experiencing "stroke-like seizures," and she often got very sick. At age 17, she woke up and couldn't hear her father talking to her.

Daisy eventually could barely walk a block, and so she moved in with her parents and eventually discovered she had been suffering from Lyme Disease.

Daisy opened up about her hearing loss via TikTok, on which she has amassed over 40,000 followers.

"I don't know 100 percent why I lost my hearing, but the theory is that I have Lyme disease and that caused Meniere's disease, which got rid of most of my hearing," Daisy shared in August 2023.

"You can test me for anything and everything, and I'm perfectly healthy -- it's just that I'm losing my hearing."

Hearing aids apparently didn't help Daisy when she began experiencing drastic hearing loss.

"Losing my hearing felt so isolating, and it really impacted my self-esteem... I went from being a social butterfly to someone who did not like being in groups or around other people at all," Daisy admitted.

The Bachelor bachelorette nearly lost her faith during her health crisis

Daisy revealed via social media that she had felt "the loneliest pain" she ever experienced when she was losing her hearing.

"I was told once that God was doing something special with me and that there was no doubt that one day my ears would pop and I would hear," Daisy said.

"I pictured myself in a glass box since I was 15 and I'm pounding on the walls screaming and terrified. People are looking in at me and they can't hear me. I can't hear them. I am alone with one of the most dangerous things -- my thoughts."

Daisy shared how it's easy to recall that "feeling of confusion" and how she was "quite frankly pissed off" at God as a teenager.

"I didn't understand how if God was real, why He would take away something I loved most," Daisy admitted.

But the bachelorette chose to look on the bright side, revealing, "Losing my hearing helped me see my ability to connect with people. It unlocked the ability to feel more, love more."

Daisy thought she had once lost herself and who she wanted to be, but she assured her followers that's not the case.

"I didn't lose her, I was just a girl who was kind to everyone but herself. Losing my hearing taught me how to fall back in love with myself," Daisy wrote.

Daisy got a cochlear implant in 2023 that she rocks as a fashion statement

Daisy sought treatment for Lyme Disease in Germany, and she ended up being in the hospital for 30 days. During her treatment, Daisy lost a lot of weight and a lot of her hair, but it made her healthy again.

However, Daisy's hearing continued to get worse, and so she decided to have a cochlear implant in March 2023. The device activated the following month, and Daisy said the successful surgery made her feel more confident, involved and happy.

"Being a little girl who couldn't stop singing & playing piano, I never imagined I would lose my hearing. Slowly losing conversations, music, part of who I am has been the most challenging thing I've experienced & has broke my heart in ways I didn't think possible," Daisy told her near 20,000 followers on Instagram in an April 2023 post.

Daisy, who boasts over 40,000 followers on TikTok, continued, "A cochlear implant gives me the chance to love all of this again. It's not an easy journey, but I'm learning it's one that is changing my life every moment my brain takes in a new sound!"

She added, "I'm thankful to the people who have inspired me by showing that being different is beautiful & powerful."

"Forever grateful for my supportive surgeon, friends & family who continuously uplift me every step of the way. TO A WHOLE NEW ADVENTURE & finding the beauty in all the unexpected things," she concluded.


Daisy wrote a children's book and founded a nonprofit organization

Daisy wrote the book Daisy Doo: All the Sounds She Knew, helping children discover "the beauty of" her "favorite sounds" thanks to a cochlear implant.

She also founded Hear Your Heart in April 2021.

Hear Your Heart is a nonprofit organization created to help support children who have autoimmune disorders or hearing loss. The organization helps to provide kids with medical assistance and funds for future education as well as brings awareness to mental health.

Support from Bachelor Nation means a lot to Daisy

After Daisy and Joey's date aired, Daisy wrote via Instagram, "I want to thank you all for being so kind and receptive of my story. The support I've been receiving has completely blown me away."

"My story is my personal experience & no path is the same, but I hope one person felt a little less alone, a little more understood, a little more seen," she continued.

Daisy continued, "I want to thank @bachelorabc @bachelornation @abcnetwork for allowing me to share part of my story in the best way possible. I will always be thankful for that day and the support I felt from the girls in the house, Joey, the producers, the people behind the cameras, mics, and everyone involved."

Daisy said sharing her story was "one of the most uplifting days" of her life, and she added, "[It] changed my confidence in a way I can't explain."

"I encourage you as this season unfolds to show love and uplift every woman who shares her story," she went on in her post.

"I can't wait for you to hear parts of the other ladies stories as they have changed my perspective in the best ways. It's all about the love & how we express that love to others. xx."

Daisy reveals relationship advice

The best relationship advice Daisy ever received is to be kind to yourself.

Daisy's #relationshipgoals couple is Taylor Swift and Travis Kelce. And her celebrity crush is Justin Bieber.

A fan-favorite The Bachelor alum slid into Daisy's DMs

The most famous person who ever slid into Daisy's DMs and followed her on social media was Ben Higgins.

Ben starred on Season 20 of The Bachelor, but he's now married to a woman outside of Bachelor Nation, Jess Clarke.

While Daisy didn't slide into Joey's DMs, she did Google him before appearing on The Bachelor's 28th season.

Daisy has fired back at trolls criticizing the sound of her voice

Daisy stood up for herself on Instagram after a hater claimed she has "vocal fry" that's hard to listen to when she talks to Joey on the show.

Daisy recently shared the following comment she had received from a troll: "How can yall listen to that vocal fry? [Crying-laughing emojis.]"

Daisy wrote alongside her post, "Going on #thebachelor was hard for me bc I knew not everyone would react to me with kindness & understanding."

"My voice is not something I can always tell & these comments do hurt because I am human," she continued. "Overall, they remind me how proud I should be for doing something & sharing a vulnerable part of me."

Daisy has apparently received other nasty messages, mainly from people with fake user names and/or pictures, and so she's asked fans to be kind, especially because she shouldn't have to explain herself.

"I do have a cochlear implant, which is how I hear," Daisy said on February 20. "And I can't always hear exactly what my voice is sounding like. I can't always tell if I'm being loud or if I'm being quiet, or if I have a vocal fry or if I don't."

She added, "It is sad because losing my hearing and getting a cochlear implant is something that really affected my confidence... Everyone was so supportive of me, and it's just unfortunate that people online have to comment stuff like this that make me [get] in my head about the way that I talk and speak."

Daisy shares her guilty pleasures and biggest pet peeves

Daisy's guilty pleasures are foot massages, eating eggs with balsamic, and watching Harry Potter movies.

The bachelorette's biggest pet peeve is being stuck on a plane after it lands, before it enters the gate.

Daisy admits watching The Bachelor on TV has been "extremely hard"

Just before the Fantasy Suites episode aired, Daisy took to TikTok and reflected on how watching The Bachelor has been "amazing" but also "extremely hard" for her.

"This process has been very interesting because you go through it, and you live it, and it's very, very real," Daisy, 25, said in a video uploaded on Monday, March 11.

"And now it's like you go through it again watching it back, but it's a little bit more tricky because you're doing it with the expectations and the comments coming in from everybody else. You have everyone's opinions, everyone's predictions."

Daisy noted how there's "a lot of outside noise" coming at her all the time.

"Being a viewer, and even myself, it's super cool watching it back because you get to see these women with all of these incredible stories, and you can feel like you relate to them or you find a connection in some kind of way," Daisy said.

Daisy went on to point out, "Has this whole entire experience for me has been absolutely amazing? Yes. But has it also been extremely hard? Absolutely."
