Ivan was beyond pleased when he saw that Tayshia was going to replace Clare Crawley as the new The Bachelorette star.

Ivan immediately picked up on Tayshia's positive energy and confidence, and he told Tayshia that she's "more [his] speed."

Tayshia told Ivan that she wants to build "an empire" with her life partner, and Ivan said he was exactly on the same page. Ivan is younger than a lot of the guys in the cast, but Tayshia complimented his "depth."

"Ivan is kind of like a dark horse. He is there and really subtle, but he also has a lot of power," Tayshia told the cameras, before Ivan fed Tayshia strawberries and kissed her while she was blindfolded.

Tayshia decided to give a group-date rose to Ivan, and it doesn't seem like he'll be going anywhere for awhile.

Until viewers can watch more of Tayshia and Ivan's love story unfold on The Bachelorette, let's learn a little bit more about this bachelor right now.

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