This is the FB post that Shawn left this past Friday 3/6 before his going away party to inform every one of his friends he’s leaving to do something VERY important, but can’t say anything. Even though he did his damndest to make sure he hinted as much as he could as to what it was:

Played baseball and graduated from the University of Arkansas in 2004 leading them to the College World Series that year with a dramatic two-out, grand slam in the 9th inning that year in a Regional game vs Wichita St. Here’s the grainy video of that HR:
He was drafted into the St. Louis Cardinals organization in 2004 but then gave up baseball a 3 years later to pursue a career in music.

Might as well say yes to the adventure of life when it comes knocking on your door.

And here are two of his many performances you can find online:
At last, but certainly not least in today’s grouping, is someone a lot of you should be familiar with. If you don’t remember, let me remind you. This is Nikki Ferrell’s ex-boyfriend…
7. Ryan McDill: 28, Kansas City, Missouri. Owns an auto recycling business in Kansas City, Missouri. Graduated University of Missouri in 2010 with a degree in Communications. Dated Nikki from 2012-2013. Had good foresight when he told Star magazine that Juan Pablo would end up dumping her. Then again, he also told Life & Style magazine that he thought Nikki was the one who got away and they’d end up together again. Oops.
Facebook: Ryan McDill (turned off as of 3/9)
And of course, lets not forget the ones that I posted here back when I told you who Nikki’s ex was…(this was Nikki pre-boob job of course)
8. Ben Higgins: 25, originally from Warsaw, Indiana currently living in Denver, CO. Works as a business analyst for Talisys. Graduated from Indiana University in 2012 with a B.S. in Business Administration. The girl you see him in a few of the pictures is his ex-girlfriend Shaelin Adams. They couldn’t have taken cheesier photos if they tried. He was on the boxing group date for the first date of the season. Bears a crazy resemblance to Peter Brady as well.
9. Clint Arlis: 27, Chicago, Ill. Graduated University of Illinois in 2010 with a dual masters in architecture and civil engineering. Was a wrestler while there but studied architecture. Currently works as a project engineer at Lend Lease in Chicago, an international construction management and development firm.
He was on the sumo wrestling date on Thursday 3/19 seen here:
Also, he was one of the lucky ones to get to wrestle the sumo dude probably 200 lbs heavier than him. It didn’t go so well:
10. JJ Lane III: 30, Denver, CO. Currently the Co-Founder and CEO of 360 Service Companies. Graduated Cum Laude with a BSBA in Finance from the University of Denver in 2009. Did investment banking in New York after graduating college before returning to Denver. Is divorced and has a daughter named Gemma who is 3. Huge hockey fan which should bode well for him since Kaitlyn’s ex’s have been hockey players.
He was on the sumo wrestling date Thursday 3/19 seen here:
He was also lucky enough to wrestle a sumo guy and get his ass kicked in the process:
11. Shawn Booth: 28, Nashville, TN. Originally from Windsor Locks, CT. Graduated Keene State College in New Hampshire in 2008 where he played soccer. This is his sister Meghann’s FB page and Instagram (booth10) account. Moved from Connecticut to Nashville a year ago to do consultant work for insurance companies, but as you’ll see, has since resigned from that job and when he returns from filming, he’ll go back into teaching group fitness classes. Also friends with Ron Worrell from Andi’s season, as you can see on his Instagram a few pictures of them together.
Here were pictures of Shawn on the sumo wrestling date at Universal CityWalk:
Kaitlyn liked him so much, she let him give her a piggyback ride once the date was over:
This was an email he sent out to co-workers telling them he’s resigning to go on the show. It was posted on the Twitter account of @kaylaa_nichols at the beginning of March, but has since been deleted. Woops Kaylaa. Be a little more careful next time.
And then another guy that liked taking a picture of himself at the airport right before leaving to go on the show:
12. Josh Seiter: 27, Chicago, Ill. Graduated the University of Illinois in 2009 with a B.A. in Sociology. Then went on to study law at the Chicago-Kent College of Law. He may look familiar to you if you like really trashy reality TV. He appeared on the E! show “Escape Club” that aired in 2013 where a bunch of singles were cast to potentially win a year long, fully paid for vacation. However, he went under the name Andrew Dean and he’s a male stripper that stripped his way through law school. When he was on that show, TMZ reported he was once on a website for male gigolo’s. Quality contestant. He shot his intro video at the male revue he currently works at in Chicago. Plenty of stuff to Google about him if you want to see his previous “work.”
13. Tony Harris: 35, St. Louis, Missouri. Currently works as a personal trainer/physical therapist. Graduated from SIU-Carbondale where he got a license as a paramedic, among other things. Very zen-centric. Into meditation, healing, etc. As you can see by pictures, got a black eye walking his dog close to leaving for the show. Works at the Healing Arts Center and also involved with Performance and Pain Relief in St. Louis. An interesting character to say the least.

Tony even took it step further than some of the other guys who take pictures right before taking off and flying out for the show. He took a picture of him and the car service that picked him up once he got to LA…
And then once he got in the car, he took this video: https://instagram.com/p/0B0ZOtRPv5/?taken-by=101freefly
Pretty confident guy saying he’d see everyone in 9 weeks in his comment on that video.

Here he was on the boxing group date (pics provided by Splash News):
And of course, yet another guy that leaves a message on his Facebook workout page March 9th insinuating he’s gonna be gone for a little bit. These guys really can’t keep quiet, can they?

Has a sister, Shannon, mom Nancy, and dad Frederick. Talk about a guy missing from the internet. Since the boxing date I’ve been trying to find pictures of the guy and there’s none other than those old acting pictures. He’s a ghost.

19. Justin Reich: 27, Naperville, Illinois. SurfSet Fitness instrutor and Boot Camp instructor at NEXT Yoga and also a personal trainer. Gee, another one of these. I’d never be able to tell by his pictures at all. Has a son Aurelius (Aury) with Autumn Pippenberg. Ex-girlfriend is super duper fitness model Francine Slobodnik. I’d say he has a type, no?
