Who Is ‘The Bachelorette’s Uzoma ‘Eazy’ Nwachukwu? Meet the Former NFL Star

0

The Bachelorette officially premiered last night, introducing us to a whole new crop of hopeful suitors for Clare Crawley. There were plenty of memorable moments from the season premiere, including when one contestant showed up with a fake pregnancy belly (bringing us back to Clare’s own introduction on The Bachelor), when two men stirred up a fight over Instagram DMs, and when another contestant rolled up in a big plastic bubble.

Another notable moment from the night was when one of Clare’s potential fiancés made a grand entrance of his own. Dressed in a bright pink suit, Eazy made his intentions clear, jumping through a sign with the words “Your Future Husband” printed on it in big, bold letters.

While we didn’t get to see too much more of him in last night’s episode, he did get a coveted rose from Clare, so we’re about to get to know him a lot better. Here’s everything you need to know about Uzoma ‘Eazy’ Nwachukwu, the man who burst onto The Bachelorette scene last night:

He’s also described as “a hopeless romantic who loves being in a relationship,” saying that he’s “looking for a woman to be the other half of a power couple.” Some fun facts about Eazy are that he hates insects, dreams of owning the New York Yankees one day, and is a huge Grey’s Anatomy fan — he’s even seen every episode.
