Forget about first date jitters. Issaquah resident John Crivello, 32, was the first to drop to one knee and propose during the sixth season premiere of ABC’s “The Bachelorette” on Monday night.
The lucky girl? Ali Fedotowsky, 25, who is looking for her own love after being on the previous season of “The Bachelor.”
Crivello grew up in Mukilteo and is in hotel business development, according to a bio posted on the show’s website. The bio says his favorite holiday is Christmas, and the three items he’d bring to a desert island are a surfboard, water desalination kit and a hunting knife.
While bachelorette Fedotowsky couldn’t say yes to his proposal, there’s bound to be more romance in store as the season progresses and contestants travel around the world in order to win her heart. With his taste in ultimate dates — either a bottle of wine at a mountain lodge or a day sipping Mai Tai’s on a tropical beach — he’s bound to wind up acing a few points in this quest for love.
Look for Crivello on ‘The Bachelorette” — 8 p.m. Mondays on KOMO 4 — or find him on Facebook.
