Fans came to love Juan Pablo during the ninth season of The Bachelorette. The 32-year-old former Venezuelan soccer stud and single dad has a 4-year-old daughter, Camila, from a previous relationship.

"In the history of this show, no guy has made a greater impact with less screen time than our soccer-playing single dad," Harrison said of the Bachelor-to-be during the "Men Tell All" special earlier this season. "He's the fan favorite we barely got to know!"

When asked about what he's looking for as the Bachelor, the birthday boy said, "That mom for [my daughter] Camila and someone I can spend many years [with] together."
