Each season of The Bachelorette brings a new villain (or two…), and Becca Kufrin‘s is no different.

One of Kufrin’s most notable suitors from last week’s season premiere was Jordan Kimball, the 26-year-old professional male model whose epic one-liners (“The power is in the brows”) already have fans of the show comparing him to Krystal Nielson, the infamous villain from Arie Luyendyk Jr.‘s season.

“They should just take Krystal from Arie’s season and Jordan from this season and put them in a room together #bachelorette #instantlove,” one fan tweeted.

Another Bachelorette fan tweeted, “Watching the bachelorette to see who’s going to be this season’s Krystal.. Jordan you did not disappoint.”

And based off of this season teaser, it looks like Kimball’s fellow contestants think the model might not be there for “the right reasons.”

“Jordan is not here for Becca. Jordan is here to boost his modeling career,” one suitor said in a clip from his confessional.
