Tayshia has called Ivan "a dark horse" on The Bachelorette, and now he's only one of three men remaining on the quest to win Tayshia's heart and hopefully become her future husband.

Tayshia has said Ivan has all the qualities she's looking for in a partner, and she was taken with the bachelor's humble and kind personality. She also appreciated his warm and positive attitude and energy.

Tayshia told Ivan's loved ones during his "hometown" visit at The Bachelorette resort that she loved his subtle confidence and how he always made her feel safe and secure in their relationship. Only one girlfriend had ever met Ivan's family before, so introducing Tayshia to his family was a big deal for him.

Tayshia felt she could be herself around Ivan, who boasted about his natural and real connection with The Bachelorette star. Ivan admitted in a confessional he was "falling in love" with Tayshia.

Until viewers find out what happens next between Tayshia and Ivan, let's learn some things to know about The Bachelorette suitor right now.

Below is a list of eleven facts Reality TV World has compiled about Ivan Hall.

Ivan has one of the coolest-sounding careers The Bachelorette has seen

ABC says Ivan builds jets for the U.S. military, and it turns out Ivan is the senior software quality engineer at Lockheed Martin.

Ivan has held down this position in Dallas, TX, for a year-and-a-half, since April 2019. Prior to his current role, Ivan was a systems engineer at Northrop Grumman and Lockheed Martin.


The Bachelorette bachelor has moved around a bit

Ivan was born in Chicago, IL, but grew up in Plano, TX, with his younger brother. He tried to have fun and enjoy the single life in his mid-twenties and briefly lived in Florida.

But now that Ivan wants to settle down, he moved to Dallas, where he currently lives and works.


Chris Harrison has nothing but nice things to say about Ivan

The Bachelorette host Chris Harrison gushed about Ivan as a person when announcing The Bachelorette's sixteenth-season cast on Facebook this past summer.

"Ivan is a real dumb guy... Obviously joking. Ivan is a really smart guy -- quiet, soft-spoken, extremely likeable," Chris said.

"His nickname is 'Sweet Ivan,' come on! But do the nice guys ever finish first? Sometimes. Sometimes they do!"

Ivan has a very close relationship with his father

Ivan's father endured and survived two cancer battles in his life as well as a heart attack.

Ivan admits his biggest fear is his father dying young, which would prevent his dad from seeing the man Ivan is becoming.


Ivan's family has been through a lot

Ivan says he tried to set a good example for his younger brother growing up but then his little brother took a dark turn and got wrapped up in partying, drugs and drinking.

Ivan's brother actually spent four years in prison and his girlfriend welcomed a child shortly before he was incarcerated. Ivan's niece couldn't even touch her father behind bars for a long time, so Ivan says he had to step up and be a second father.

However, Ivan claims his relationship with his brother -- who got released from prison last year -- is still the best thing to ever happen to him and they remain best friends today.
