Tayshia noted Ivan has a "really subtle" personality with "a lot of power" at the same time, and she considers him a dark horse in The Bachelorette race.
While Tayshia says she's not typically drawn to shy men, Tayshia discovered Ivan has overcome a lot of adversity in his life, and she views him as being kind, courageous and impressive. In turn, Ivan believes Tayshia has a "beautiful soul."
Both Ivan and Tayshia are letting down their walls for each other and have bonded over being biracial and having similar upbringings, but could Ivan end up being The One for Tayshia? Will he be able to win her heart over the other suitors?
Until viewers can get to know Ivan better and watch more of his romance with Tayshia unfold on The Bachelorette, let's learn a little bit about this bachelor right now.
Below is a list of nine facts Reality TV World has compiled about Ivan Hall.
Ivan reveals his hobbies and interests
Ivan says he's "a white wine kind of guy" and seems to embrace his "Nice Guy" persona.
He is a recovered Croc enthusiast, loves high-end cars, and wants to run his own exotic car rental company one day.
"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!"
What is Ivan's biggest turn-on in a woman?
Ivan says intelligence is a huge aphrodisiac to him and nothing turns him on more than getting into a spirited debate with a woman he cares about.
A woman who can whip up some of his mother's Filipino cooking probably wouldn't hurt either!
Ivan has a very close relationship with his father
Ivan says his mother taught him to be sweet and caring yet his father taught him how to be a man.
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 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.
It takes a lot for Ivan to give his heart away
Ivan has revealed he only loved one girl in his life.
Ivan is hoping to find a partner who is beautiful, nurturing, smart and ambitious.
