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 boasts brains and brawn

Ivan, who is interested in physical fitness and likes to stay in shape, studied Industrial Engineering and received his Bachelor of Science degree in 2015 from Texas Tech University.

Ivan also received his Six Sigma Greenbelt certification in 2015.


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!"

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'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.


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.
