Despite the fact, yes fact, that Alex Woytkiw is the total package on Bachelor in Paradise, viewers can't stop bringing up his height. If you need a refresher, Alex faced off against "villain" Chad Johnson in an epic two-on-one date during JoJo Fletcher's season of The Bachelorette.
Now, the former Marine is back on BiP and the height jokes keep coming. Even Amanda Stanton made a subtle dig at Alex, 27, on the show — but we love him even more because of his sense of humor. He revealed he was a fan of the meme that went viral calling him a "former child" last year.
"As the guy who has the background in the military that I have and the experience, if someone were to try and make fun of me and call my occupation a ‘former child’ and be seriously trying to make fun of me, I would say it’s pathetic," he told Talk Nerdy With Us. "I looked at that meme, and I got a kick out of it. I was hoping that whoever developed it, made it with that intention and not to be hurtful."
According to his ABC bio, he's 5'7" tall so now that we've gotten that out of the way we can move on to more important things. Here's everything you need to know about Alex:
He's a twin.
Alex has a twin brother named Adam — and it was Adam's wife who signed him up for The Bachelorette "My sister-in-law put me up to it and thought that I should give it a good old college try," he said. "She put me up to it, and I went because why not?"
He loves dogs.
On BiP, Alex couldn't stop talking about his dream of owning a Dutch shepherd. However, he is currently the proud uncle of a beautiful silver lab named Havoc.
He's great with kids.
"I can't wait to have kids one day," he captioned this photo on Instagram. Excuse us because our ovaries just exploded.
He's a real-life hero.
Along with serving in the military, we seriously think that Alex is an undercover superhero. When asked to name the most outrageous thing he has ever done he said, "Ripped the door off a totaled, burning car and pulled the unconscious driver out to safety." NBD.
He has serious plans for the future.
When it comes to five-year plans, Alex has got one down pat, seeing himself "with a master's degree running my own business, partnered up with my twin."
