I just went into it.” Craig Sjodin/ABC Amabile says he doesn’t necessarily have a type but is prepared to settle down with the right person. “I’m just looking to find someone,” he says. “I’m ready.” RELATED VIDEO: ‘Bachelor in Paradise’: First look at Wills, Joe the Grocer, and Tia in action As far as the massive attention he’s received in the last few weeks (hello, Joe the Grocer merchandise!), Amabile is charmingly humble. “It was a better reaction than I thought,” he says of the sudden fame. “I was preparing everybody like, ‘This is going to be really embarrassing.’ And it went pretty well.” And Amabile insists his life is “pretty much the same” since his pre-Bachelorette days, except for one thing: “I take a lot more pictures!” The Bachelorette: Men Tell All airs next Monday, followed by the season finale on Aug. 6, both at 8 p.m. ET on ABC.
