Kenny King is a contestant on The Bachelorette 2017 and he is going head to head with fellow cast member Lee Garrett. King and dubbed villain Garrett end up on the first two-on-one date of the season and Lindsay must either choose one or neither of them.
So, who is Kenny King? Kenny King’s real name is actually Kenny Layne and he is a professional wrestler. He is signed with Ring of Honor and he has actually been a ROH World Tag Team Champion. In addition to wrestling, King, who lives in Las Vegas, previously worked as a Chippendales dancer. He has also appeared on the reality competition show WWE Tough Enough, but he did not win. He has also appeared on several other shows, including a dating show called Baggage, a TV show called The Strip and a Nickelodeon program called My Brother and Me on an episode titled “Dee Dee’s Haircut”.
King is a single father, and according to his Instagram account, he’s back to spending time with his daughter since filming The Bachelorette. Check out a photo of the two of them below.
King has also been training and maintaining his fit physique since being on the show. Surely, he’ll be returning for the Men Tell All Special this season.
Tonight’s episode is just part 1 of a two-night Bachelorette event, which features two new, full episodes of the show. The ABC synopsis for tonight’s episode reads:
Kenny and Lee continue their compelling and impassioned confrontation during the spelling-bee group date after-party, but Rachel sends a message by what man she rewards the coveted group date rose. The oyster culture of Bluffton, South Carolina, provides Rachel and Jack Stone with a romantic backdrop for their one-on-one date that ends in a surprise. A distraught Bachelorette goes straight to her rose ceremony and while the past week has been tough for her, it has brought her clarity. The lucky remaining men will begin the international leg of their journey as they head off to picturesque Oslo, Norway.
Tune in tonight at 8 p.m. ET/PT and tomorrow night at the same time on ABC, for all-new episodes of The Bachelorette 2017.
