Witzmann, now 31, played at 6-foot-7 and 320 pounds during his time in the NFL. He played one game for the Chiefs in 2020 before being released in May. He briefly landed on the Falcons' practice squad in September but then was let go. Witzmann appears to have cut much of his playing weight in the short time since.

"Bryan is not your stereotypical jock -- he's a foodie, religious, family-oriented, completely down to earth and all about finding himself a wife," his profile on "The Bachelorette" website says. "He considers himself to be quite the romantic, and thanks to all of the romcoms his older sisters made him watch growing up, Bryan is all about making big moves to show his affection. He loves to travel and hopes to find a partner who will join him as he dines his way across the globe. Bryan is a big believer in fate and feels that his being here to meet Michelle is serendipitous and that it's a match truly meant to be!"

Witzmann loves philosophy, has been to every continent but Antarctica and thinks orchids are majestic, according to his profile.
