Well, that certainly means that Greg isn’t here this time to walk around; he is here to win Katie’s heart too! But, what makes this 27-year-old Marketing Sales Representative so charming?
In his profile on ABC’s official website, it is mentioned that Greg is a full package, who is handsome, vulnerable, kind, and very serious about settling down.
