Ivan started out the season as a quietly-confident dark horse, but Tayshia slowly found herself smitten with the security he provided her as well as his intelligence, kindness, authenticity, and big heart.
"I feel like the luckiest guy in the world. I can't really imagine anybody really being close to the connection that I have with Tayshia at this point," Ivan gushed.
During his overnight Fantasy Suite date with Tayshia, Ivan told the Bachelorette, "The word 'love' just means so much to me... I don't want to just throw it out there. I love hard and I'll love them for the rest of their life or do anything for that person."
Ivan added, "I probably started falling in love with you a couple weeks ago, honestly. And it's more than that at this point... Tayshia, I am undoubtedly falling in love with you right now. I'm sorry I didn't tell you sooner, and I have kind of glossed over it in the past."
Tayshia confirmed that she was "falling for" Ivan as well and noted they had a breakthrough in that moment that would allow for them to take their relationship to the next level.
Tayshia said she could see herself with Ivan at the end of the show and pictured themselves "taking over the world" together.
Until viewers find out whether Ivan ends up with Tayshia in Tuesday night's The Bachelorette finale, let's learn some things about the suitor right now.
Below is a list of twelve facts Reality TV World has compiled about Ivan Hall.
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.
Ivan is inspired by his parents' love considering they've been married for 30 years
Ivan says he talks to his mother every day and she taught him how to be sweet and caring while his dad taught him how to be a man.
Ivan's father grew up on the south side of Chicago and his mother grew up in Manila, Philippines and moved to Chicago at age 16.
Ivan has thanked his parents for supporting him through sports and pushing him to get good grades. Ivan's parents also paid for his college education.
