According to Chasen’s Bachelorette profile on ABC’s website, the reality star is the “ultimate romantic” and he’s ready to meet his future wife. The bio described Chasen’s dream girl as the “perfect combination of beauty and brains.” But ultimately, he just wants to make his partner feel special. 

“He says there is no better feeling than seeing your partner smile and knowing the reason is because of you,” the profile reads. 

The Bachelorette profile also states that Chasen is an IT account executive. Chasen’s Instagram bio also reveals he’s a model for No Ties Management. Meanwhile, the 31-year-old’s feed highlights his love for Goldendoodles

When Chasen met Crawley in The Bachelorette Season 16 premiere, he instantly caught everyone’s attention. The new reality star came in dressed as a knight. He also earned the group date rose in the second week. Even so, Chasen hasn’t earned much screentime. Now, it looks like producers have chosen to highlight the reality star — but are they for the right reasons?

Per ABC’s press release for The Bachelorette Season 16 Episode 6, an “unlikely duo” will call out Chasen during the group date after-party, and the drama will continue into the rose ceremony cocktail party. The two contestants will question Chasen’s intentions, alleging he is there for the wrong reasons. Adams will also get involved, as she’ll confront Chasen to see his perspective of the situation. But of course, this drama will cut into time with the other men. 

Meanwhile, the recent Bachelorette trailer suggests Ed Waisbrot may be one of the men who accuse Chasen. At the start of the preview, Chasen calls Tayshia a “smoke show.” The men seemingly disapprove of the comment. And in a confessional, Ed calls someone a “fraud” and “phony.” Then Chasen confronts Ed.

“This sh*t needs to stop,” Chasen says in the promo. “I’m not taking any more, dude. I’m bringing my inner Wolverine out. It’s gonna get bloody.”

As Chasen’s Bachelorette profile states, his nickname is “Wolverine” because he “recovers and heals quickly.” Now, will things between Chasen and Ed actually get heated? Bachelor Nation fans will just have to wait and see. But in a post on Instagram, Chasen hinted that the moment was an overreaction.

“Anybody else want me to call them a smokeshow?” Chasen wrote, adding hashtags like “#teamchasen,” “#whosthisguyed,” and “#overreactionofthecentury.” 

Then in an Instagram post of his own, Ed wrote, “Sometimes you have to fight your battles with your words when you’re a 36 year old grown ass man child with injuries.”

The Bachelorette Season 16 Episode 6 will be released Tuesday, Nov. 17, at 8 p.m. ET on ABC.
