Joey Graziadei’s search for love began on Season 20 of The Bachelorette, where he vied for the heart of Charity Lawson.
The handsome hunk stole viewers’ hearts with his sincerity about wanting to find a wife and settle down.
At one point, it seemed Charity would be the woman of his dreams, as Joey made it to the final two alongside Dotun Olubeko.
Ultimately, that journey ended in heartbreak for Joey, as Charity chose Dotun, and the couple is now engaged.
However, it wasn’t all bad news because, during the finale, host Jesse Palmer announced that Joey would be the next Bachelor, much to the delight of viewers.
Now, an exciting new journey begins for Joey, who’s determined to find lasting love with someone.
In Season 28, he’ll have a chance to find just his wife, with an unprecedented amount of extraordinary women competing for his heart.
There will be 32 women meeting Joey during the premiere – the most to ever arrive at the mansion in one night, and from what we’ve seen in the teaser, the season will include a rollercoaster of love and heartbreak.
