‘The Bachelorette’ 2022 features twin brothers as contestants

Fans may notice that two of the men have the same last name, are the same age, and come from the same hometown of Brookfield, Connecticut. Justin and Joey Young are twin brothers and the youngest men on the show this season. At only 24-years-old, fans immediately began to voice their opinion on their age. 

One Twitter user wrote, “Sure they are cute but I can’t imagine them being 24 and holding up maturity-wise against a 34-year-old man who is well-established in life and ready for marriage!”

Another person felt similarly, “I mean no offense here, 24-year-olds, as I was [young] once too… It’s so young to think you know what you want in this world at that age and even if you do it will change.”

However, Justin and Joey aren’t the first set of twins to appear within The Bachelor franchise. Emily and Haley Ferguson were also twins and appeared on Ben Higgins’ season.
