The Bachelorette bachelor, Robby Hayes, is putting his good looks to good use after getting some exposure on JoJo Fletcher's season last year.

Hayes has signed a modeling contract with the agency Wilhelmina Denver, Us Weekly reported.

"I've never been with a major agency such as Wilhelmina Denver," Hayes, 28, told Us of the opportunity. "I've been signed with a couple smaller local agencies in my past, but this will be a big step in the right direction for me."

Before officially signing the deal, Hayes moved from his hometown of Jacksonville, FL, to Denver, CO. He also grew out a fairly lengthy beard, which he was probably asked to do considering he'll be representing the Rocky Mountain region.

"The entire industry in Denver excites me," Hayes revealed.

"It's grown so much in recent years and the opportunity of not only great Colorado projects but national projects as well will be greatly beneficial for both Wilhelmina and my career moving forward."

Hayes insisted Wilhelmina Denver was "not the reason" he moved to a different state, but the potential of finding modeling representation was "definitely something I was hoping would come about knowing I was moving out here."

Wilhelmina will reportedly work to book Hayes for hosting gigs and product endorsements.

Hayes is currently roommates with fellow The Bachelorette suitor Chase McNary in Denver. The guys have managed to get some press recently after leaking their text-message conversation during The Bachelor's Season 21 premiere. McNary also publicly discussed Corinne Olympios on pal Vinny Ventiera's podcast.

Hayes finished as Fletcher's runner-up on The Bachelorette when she chose Jordan Rodgers instead at the final Rose Ceremony of Season 12. McNary was eliminated by the show's star right in the middle of their overnight Fantasy Suite date.

Fletcher and Rodgers' relationship appears to still be going strong, although the engaged pair has yet to set a wedding date.
