Warning: Spoilers for The Bachelorette season 16 ahead. Bachelor Nation members may be wondering: Who is Brendan Morais from The Bachelorette season 16, a.k.a. the contestant that’s already won over the hearts of fans across the world. Ahead, is what we know about him.

Who is Brendan Morais?

Brendan, a 30-year-old from Milford, Massachusetts, is a “sensitive soul,” according to his Bachelorette bio. In his bio, he reveals that his father died at a young age, which why he wants to become a dad of his own children so much. Brendan has also moved around a lot. After moving to Los Angeles from his hometown in Massachusetts, he wrote that he moved back to Massachusetts to be closer to his family. Other tidbits: His nickname among his friends is BMoney and he loves a turtleneck.

What is Brendan Morais’ job?

In his Instagram bio, Brendan lists his job as a Commercial Roofer. He explained that he moved back to Massachusetts from Los Angeles to work work at his family roofing business. He also can juggle (it’s unclear if he’s done that professionally) and he’s also a coach for his high school’s basketball team. But it seems like Brendan makes most of his money from modeling. He’s represented by NEMG Model & Talent Management and Maggie Agency. Thanks to his agencies, we also know a lot of details we probably shouldn’t about Brendan, like that his shoe size is 12 and that he wears a 40L suit. Along with modeling (he’s worked for brands like New Balance and Life Is Good), Brendan is also an actor. His Instagram bio lists him as an “artist” though. According to his IMDB, Brendan has three on-screen credits from 2017: short films Chances and Ace of Spades, and feature film Get Rich Free. (Watch the trailer for that here.) Brendan has also done commercials, like this one he posted on Instagram where he played a groom. Convincing! He’s also done commercials for brands like Jeep, FAGE Greek yogurt, Joseph A. Bank and Truly Hard Seltzer.

What happened to Brendan Morais on The Bachelorette?

Ahead are The Bachelorette season 16 spoilers about what happened to Brendan on Clare Crawley and Tayshia Adams’ season.

He Quits in the Final Four

Brendan was a blip on Clare’s radar (she even joke that she thought she eliminated him), but that all changed when Tayshia became The Bachelorette. Reality Steve reported in October 2020 that Brendan makes it to Tayshia’s final four alongside Zac, Ben and Ivan. According to Reality Steve, Brendan quits The Bachelorette in the final four or the final three, which causes Tayshia to become “distraught.” The trailer for Tayshia’s season shows her crying a lot, which is caused by her breakup with Brendan. Per Reality Steve, Brendan finalized his divorce from his ex-wife a year before The Bachelorette. Though he and Tayshia both bonded over being divorced, his separation seems to be what led him to quit the show, as he wasn’t ready yet to jump into a new serious relationship. Reality Steve also reported that Brendan was the only one from Tayshia’s final four who didn’t have his family at Hometown Dates.

He Was Tayshia’s First Pick

Though Brendan quits The Bachelorette before the finale, Reality Steve reports that he was Tayshia’s first pick. In the end, Tayshia chose Zac as her winner. Reality Steve, who revealed that Tayshia and Zac are not engaged, also reported that he’s been told they’re not going to last. All of this leads fans to believe that Tayshia could chase after Brendan, like she did after her breakup with John Paul Jones on Bachelor in Paradise season 6.
