According to Brendan’s Bachelorette profile, the 26-year-old is training to become a full-time firefighter one day because he hopes to make a difference in his community in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. Now, is Katie the perfect match for Brendan? His bio says he’s looking for someone who has a “sense of adventure and an open mind.”

Meanwhile, Brendan has remained in the background on Katie’s season of The Bachelorette. The contestant hasn’t received much screen time outside of drama with Hunter Montgomery. So many fans were wondering about Brendan’s connection with Katie when he made it through week 6. But hopefully, Bachelor Nation fans will see more from Brendan in episode 7 of The Bachelorette Season 17.

Bachelor Nation fans still don’t know much about Brendan and Blake’s friendship on The Bachelorette Season 17. But according to Wells Adams, the relationship was addressed when Blake showed up on the show during week 5. 

“The one thing they haven’t touched on is that Blake and Brendan … knew each other before the show,” Wells told E! News. “Blake suggested to Brendan to go on the show. And so when he shows up later, he’s like, ‘What’re you doing here? You told me to come here!’”
