Dotun Olubeko is still in the running for Charity Lawson's heart and her final rose on The Bachelorette's twentieth season.

Dotun is a 30-year-old integrative medicine specialist from Brooklyn, NY.


Charity gushed week after week on The Bachelorette about how her connection with Dotun was "unreal" and "indescribable" because they always managed to dive deep in their conversations and Dotun showed The Bachelorette star his soul, but Charity began to worry he was "too good to be true."

Charity questioned after their one-on-one date in New Orleans, "Is there something I should be doubting? Should I be doubting myself? But no, this is exactly what I prayed for and truly opened my heart up to receive."

During Dotun's hometown date, he told Charity that he was "definitely falling in love" with her, and Charity, in turn, said everything felt "right" with the bachelor.

"An engagement has never felt more real than it does right now. I'm ready for this movie to have a happy ending," Dotun told the cameras.

Charity boasted about how she and Dotun had a beautiful and magical love story developing, and Dotun said he felt like they were in a fairy tale during their Fantasy Suite date.

"[My head] is in line with where my heart is now, at this point. The scary part is that I'm not scared. The way that I care about you and the way I feel about you when I see you, and holding you, are such a clear sign to me. It's scary how easy it is to say that I'm genuinely in love with you," Dotun told Charity.

And Charity said she was "100 percent" feeling the same way for Dotun.

"I am 100 percent in love with you, and being able to say, 'I love you,' that is where I'm at. I don't want to hold that in, and I'm not going to hold it in anymore. And it feels so freakin' good to say!" Charity gushed in reply.

Until viewers find out what happens next between Charity and Dotun, let's get to know this bachelor a little better right now.

Below is a list of 10 facts Reality TV World has compiled about The Bachelorette Season 20 contestant Dotun Olubeko

Dotun is "the full package" and ready to find his person, says ABC

Dotun is tall, driven and ambitious. He's hoping his future wife has the same love for adventure and excitement for the little things like he does.

He describes himself as open-minded, full of love, and the best listener. Dotun has a zest for life and even once went on a spontaneous 45-day trip around Europe.

Dotun is looking for an "everlasting love" with someone.

The Bachelorette bachelor comes from a big Nigerian-American family

Dotun moved to the United States with his parents when he was only four-years-old.

Dotun even has a "Resident Alien" card to prove his entry into America, and the bachelor carries that card around with him all the time.

Dotun's family came to the U.S. thanks to a lottery that his "auntie" saw and called them about.

Dotun said his entry into America was therefore thanks to his auntie and "one phone call," which Charity thought was amazing.

"That experience shaped me because my parents, coming to this country, they struggled. They put a lot of effort in... so I could have a good life, and I cherish that," Dotun shared.

In June 2020, Dotun shared on Instagram, "To be a minority is wearing an away jersey you can never take off. I am a black man. Don't let the smiles fool you, I have been torn down because of it. But I will continue to deliberately build others regardless of your color."

"All too often we find it easier to criticize each other, instead of building each other up," he continued.

"With all the negativity going around let's do something positive. I don't think this post is going to change the world, but it will remind you that I am, always have been, and always will be black."


Dotun went to college in California with a passion for health and wellness

Dotun attended California State University, Chico from 2015-2018.

He then pursued his Master of Science from the University of Western States.

Dotun received his Master of Science in Human Nutrition and Functional Medicine as well as his Bachelor of Science in Nutrition and Food Sciences w/ focus in Sports Nutrition.

He was double minor in Health and Wellness and Health Promotion.

Dotun is the owner of DPT Fitness

Dotun, a former track star, has owned his own fitness studio since March 2020.

He is a former multi-sport collegiate athlete, NCAA All-American, and sponsored pro athlete.

While in school, Dotun also received the Outstanding Performance in the Classroom award.

Charity thought Dotun had the best body of all her The Bachelorette bachelors

On Live with Kelly and Mark, Charity was asked to dish out some superlatives for her The Bachelorette cast.

When asked to pick the guy with "the best body," Charity pointed to Dotun's picture. Charity admitted she assessed this during the dodgeball group date.

Dotun teaches nutrition and exercise techniques on his Instagram page, but he's been trying to bounce back from old sports injuries for a while.

Dotun has nearly 400,000 followers on Instagram and he teaches people how to get in shape and live a healthy lifestyle.

"Really powerful things" were missing in Dotun's prior relationships

"I always felt like I was the one being learned from, but I want to learn from other people," Dotun explains.

On The Bachelorette, Dotun told Charity that he thought he could learn from her, and he called Charity his "ideal woman" based on everything she brings to the table.

In fact, Dotun was close to turning down his spot on The Bachelorette -- until he discovered Charity was going to be the lead of Season 20.


Dotun has fears of singing and heights

Dotun has a fear of singing in public because he thinks his singing voice is horrific, and he's also afraid of heights.

Despite his fear of heights, Dotun and Charity went bungee jumping on their first one-on-one date in Washington.

"We looked at each other the whole time. I personally refused to look down otherwise I would've thrown up or fainted. Dotun has an incredible calming energy about him that made me feel so protected and at ease in that moment despite how terrified I was," Charity gushed of the adventurous date to Entertainment Weekly.

"We were in the wilderness, surrounded by beautiful scenery, and this was a date to challenge myself and step out of my comfort zone. Because of how Dotun made me feel, I knew he would be the perfect one to conquer my biggest fear with. I didn't even know at the time he also was afraid of heights, so I'm glad we got to do that together!"

In addition, Dotun has a fear of failure. He says every time he really wanted or went for something, he wouldn't get it or would fall flat on his face.

Charity feels Dotun has "extreme" emotional depth

Dotun was the first person in The Bachelor franchise to ever receive back-to-back 1-on-1 dates.

Charity said she wanted to keep seeing Dotun because he has "extreme emotional depth" to him.

"When I'm with him, there are a lot of things we talk about and that I haven't necessarily shared with a lot of the other people," Charity said on the July 27 episode of the "Bachelor Happy Hour" podcast.

"So I think, for me, that was almost stimulating in the sense that it left me wanting or craving for more... With Dotun, it was like, 'Yeah! Why not? Let's continue our connection.'"

Charity therefore said that once she traveled from Washington to New Orleans, she wanted to keep the momentum going with Dotun.

Although Charity's date with Dotun left the other guys jealous and feeling a tad overlooked, Charity apparently has no regrets about the decision.

"With Dotun, there's something special and it was a special time that we had, that we got to spend in New Orleans together," Charity shared.

"And so, yeah, I'm not regretful for giving him two one-on-ones back-to-back."

Dotun believes his The Bachelorette casting was "fate"

Dotun believes that "fate" led him to Charity on The Bachelorette this season.

"Honestly, I got on [The Bachelorette] only two weeks before filming started," Dotun revealed during a recent appearance on the "Bachelor Happy Hour" podcast, which is co-hosted by Bachelor in Paradise spouses Joe Amabile and Serena Pitt.

"It was a really short time period, apparently one of the shortest, I've been told. It was just happenstance where someone dropped out and someone thought of me to fill that role."

Dotun said one of Charity's original bachelors -- who had been nominated for the show -- dropped out for work or for personal reasons, and so his roommate thought Dotun would make a great replacement. (Dotun's roommate apparently has a connection with The Bachelorette's production or casting department).

But Dotun said he was pretty "certain" he wasn't going to join the cast because of how quickly things were moving.

"And financially -- for work and my career -- it just felt like it wasn't the right timing," Dotun shared.

"But once I saw Charity at The Women Tell All, I was like, 'Okay, I think something is telling me to go.'"

Dotun said that watching Charity on the Tell All for Zach Shallcross' The Bachelor season was the "deciding factor" for him.

"It felt like my soul was speaking, like, 'Hey, you should go for this,'" he added.

Dotun said while he's a logical person, there is a side of him that "believes in fate and bigger things."

He concluded, "I try to let that be a driving force for some of my decisions. I still try to be thoughtful, but I definitely let [fate] influence me."

Dotun believes love isn't always enough

"Best dating advice I've ever received? Love is not always enough," Dotun spilled during the July 21 episode of the "Bachelor Happy Hour" podcast.

The podcast's co-hosts Serena Pitt and Joe Amabile wondered if Dotun's advice was a hint about how his relationship with Charity played out.

When asked to tease the end of The Bachelorette's 20th season, all Dotun said was, "I genuinely just feel like this is such a good group of guys, and I just want y'all to tune in."
