Chicago guy strips down to his tats on ‘The Bachelorette’

SHARE Chicago guy strips down to his tats on ‘The Bachelorette’

Three Chicago area guys will be competing for a potential fiancee on “The Bachelorette,” and one of them’s already getting ink for his ink.

Law school grad Josh Seiter is seen peeling off his necktie and then sliding a woman’s fingers over his heavily tattooed pecs in the trailer for the reality show’s new season, which starts Monday.

Those moves are nothing new for Reiter, who moonlights as an exotic dancer with the Chicago troupe Dreamboys.

And he’s also something of a reality TV pro, having appeared last year on the E! series “Escape Club” under his dancer stage name Andrew Dean.

It’s yet to be seen whether Seiter’s attempt at seduction pays off, but it turned off at least one observer, a preview watcher at Grantland.com who wrote, “Whoever this is, he is my least favorite bro. There is no chance I like this dude.”

But how could anyone not like a dude who says his biggest date fear is, “She will have bad breath?”

Of course, “The Bachelorette” wouldn’t be “The Bachelorette” without a gimmick. This summer, the men get to choose their conquest, casting votes for either Britt Nilsson or Kaitlyn Bristowe from the Chris Soules “Bachelor” season earlier this year.

Besides Seiter, another suitor bringing pride to the Chicago area is Naperville fitness trainer Justin Reich, 28. ABC teases that Reich brings helium balloons to make a squeaky-voiced introduction to the two women.

And Chicago architectural engineer Clint Arlis, 27, tells the “Bachelorette” producers that if he could change lives for one day, he’d like to be “Chuck Norris, for obvious reasons.”
