Bachelorette Becca Kufrin sent seven guys packing on the premiere of her season of the ABC reality show, but one short timer is standing out as a favorite that fans want to see on Bachelor in Paradise. After Joe Amabile was passed over for a rose at The Bachelorette's opening night rose ceremony, fans flocked to social media to demand justice for the hunky Chicago grocery store owner.
In his opening night preview package, Joe from Chicago stood out as more of an everyman than the glossy football players and models that populated Becca's boyfriend pool. But Joe was so nervous that he blew his introduction to Becca during his limo meet and greet at Bachelor Mansion.
"I'm Joe and I forgot everything I was going to say to you," Amabile told Kufrin after walking up to her from the limo. A flustered Joe seemingly muttered an expletive as he walked away from Becca, which set the stage for his demise on the ABC reality show.
During the premiere night cocktail party, Joe used his alone time with The Bachelorette to tell her he used to peddle watermelons in grocery stores. His fate was further sealed when Becca told him it was "cute" that he owned a grocery store. Of course, it probably didn't help that Joe used this unfortunate tagline: "I deal in produce, but one thing I haven't produced yet is love." Ugh.
