Who Went Home on 'The Bachelor' This Week?Michael Kirchoff - ABC

Joey Graziadei's season of The Bachelor has officially ended (time flies when you're busy being handsome and playing tennis), and you already know ABC dropped stunning pics and questionable bios about his contestants when it all started. We've got first names, hometowns, and ages, too. If you want to have a PhD in Bachelorology (which is totally a real thing, look it up), get to know everyone by clicking ➡️!

As far as what Joey's looking for in a partner, he told the Bachelor Happy Hour podcast, “I am looking for my person. I know for me, especially as I’ve gotten older, there isn’t a type. It’s more about a personality and a type of person. I just need someone that’s willing to be open to taking on life with me. I want someone adventurous. I want someone that’s going to love every day and try to make the most of it. I don’t know what that looks like. I’m one of those people that believes I’ll know when I see it. I’m just really excited for the idea that I might actually find that person.”

One of these ladies is Joey's future fiancé, so happy scrolling!
