Iggy is a 30-year-old businessman from Chicago, IL, who hasn't receive a one-on-one date with Rachel yet.
However, Iggy has made a name for himself on The Bachelorette by being "protective" of Rachel and informing her when he believes guys are being disingenuous or lack qualities she is looking for in a partner or future husband.
