Reality Steve spoiler blogger Steve Carbone reported on Friday that Connor, 30, will be one of the bachelors on The Bachelorette's nineteenth season, although the singer wasn't listed in ABC's initial cast announcement that revealed 35 potential suitors last week.
Connor was a 29-year-old math teacher from Nashville, TN, when he appeared on The Bachelorette's seventeenth season in early 2021. He memorably showed up in a cat costume on Night 1.
Katie seemed quite fond of Connor from the start, but she sent him packing upon realizing there wasn't much physical or sexual chemistry between them. Katie essentially didn't feel much in their kiss and so she put Connor into the friend zone, unintentionally.
Rumors began to swirl Connor is a bad kisser because of Katie's reaction, but a woman named Tara in the audience wanted to prove people wrong by kissing Connor at The Bachelorette: The Men Tell All taping, which also featured Connor singing a song called "Bromance."
Connor fell hard and fast for Maurissa Gunn, but she dumped Connor once Riley Christian arrived on the beach in Mexico and wooed her with a special one-on-one date.
Connor therefore left the show without a partner and was later spotted in Nashville with his BIP co-star Victoria Paul; however, he never confirmed romance speculation and appears to still be single today.
Connor will be one of the many The Bachelor and The Bachelorette alums involved in "The Bachelor: Live on Stage "tour this year.
"Wait why does he look like he's auditioning to be the newest member of the backstreet boys??" Connor joked on Instagram in February before revealing his April tour stops.
"Prepare for a night of laughs, dates, games, and of course a little bit of music!!"
