"The Bachelorette" Season 17 (Katie Thurston)

Marcus is a sweet guy with a calming presence about him. He has built a very successful professional life investing in properties, but now he is ready to shift his focus and invest in himself. Marcus is looking for someone who is smart, ambitious and tidy. He cannot be with someone who is happy sitting on their laurels all-day long, and he dreams of finding a partner who brings excitement and adventure to his world. He loves to play board games – Monopoly being his all-time favorite – and finds great joy in taking in all that the Portland culinary scene has to offer. When describing himself as a lover, Marcus says he is “amazing.” There’s no doubt that Marcus is ready for love and marriage, and we hope his confidence is enough to win Katie’s heart.
