"The Bachelorette" finally returns to ABC on June 7 with Katie Thurston as the new leading lady. Viewers will remember Katie as a fan-favorite from Matt James' season of "The Bachelor."

When it was announced that she would be looking for love again during Season 17 of "The Bachelorette," fans rejoiced. It appears that Katie will have plenty of handsome men vying for her attention to kick off the brand new season, and one of those guys will be Hunter Montgomery.

The 34-year-old software strategist from Houston, Texas is sure to win over plenty of hearts as a single father of two children. According to his ABC bio, Hunter is a romantic at heart and has become known to his friends and family members as the guy who goes above and beyond in a relationship by writing love letters, creating mixtapes, and handing out flowers to the object of his affection.
