Luke Pell is said to be one of the bachelors on ABC’s The Bachelorette 2016 season with JoJo Fletcher that is set to air this spring. It sounds as if fans will definitely be buzzing about Luke this spring as early spoilers tease that he may be one to watch. What do viewers need to know about Pell?
As Reality Steve’s spoilers detail, Luke Pell went to West Point and studied sociology and systems engineering. While there, he was involved in some Christian organizations, and he played football. He graduated in 2007 and then served as an Army officer for five years.

The Bachelorette contestant’s LinkedIn page reveals that during his military service, Luke was a platoon leader, a fire direction officer, a fire support officer, and a battalion operations officer. He served in Afghanistan for some time and spent time at several bases, including at Fort Campbell in Kentucky, Fort Bliss in Tennessee, and in El Paso, Texas. Pell left the military in 2012 as a Captain. After his military service, Pell worked for Chesapeake Energy in the oil industry for two years.
Pell’s website details that he is currently focused on building a singing career. He shares that he had been writing songs for years, and as he built a fan base, he started to also work on transitioning his commitment to music from a hobby to a career.
Luke put together a band in 2014, and his debut album, William Lucas Pell, was slated to be released in June 2015. According to GigMasters, this contestant keeps fairly busy with gigs, usually in Texas, and occasionally in the Nashville, Tennessee area as well. It looks like he does a bit of modeling too, but his focus is definitely on his music at this point.

Luke was born in Texas, and despite his military service and some connections in Nashville, it seems he is still based in the Lone Star state. As Bachelorette fans would surely be all too happy to point out, Fletcher is also from Texas. Does this give Pell an advantage this spring? Reality Steve’s spoilers have teased that there may well be some sparks between JoJo and Luke, but everybody will have to tune in to see how long he lasts.
Based on past Twitter posts, it seems that Luke likes to golf and hunt, and he apparently leans conservative when it comes to politics. He certainly seems to be a country boy through and through, and viewers will be anxious to see how well he clicks with JoJo. Some spoiler fans are already speculating that if he doesn’t earn Fletcher’s final rose, he could perhaps be a front-runner to be the next Bachelor lead as he certainly has a compelling backstory.
Spoiler previews have shown Luke riding a horse that was apparently altered just slightly to look like a unicorn as he heads up to the mansion to meet Fletcher. Fans will remember that she wore a unicorn head during her introduction to Ben Higgins during his Bachelor run. Will Fletcher give him props for this unusual entrance?
It is shaping up to be a wild ride this spring on ABC’s The Bachelorette 2016 season, and spoilers tease that Luke Pell may be one to watch as JoJo Fletcher searches for love. The new season debuts on Monday, May 23, and fans cannot wait to get started.
