Joey, a 28-year-old tennis pro from Collegeville, Pennsylvania, has shared a strong connection with Lex since the premiere. In episode 3, Lexi impressed Joey during a talent show when she declared that she was the best kisser in the world and proved it to him by giving him a long kiss on stage. She also praised him for being so kind-hearted and sincere when asked what Joey’s most attractive quality was to her. Lexi won the talent show because, as Joey said, she got out of her comfort zone during it.
During Bachelor season 28 episode 4, Joey chose Lex for a one-on-one date in Malta. She opened up to him about her experience with endometriosis and explained that she might not be able to have children. She told Joey that she felt called to be a mother and this was very difficult for her. She also said that her ex-boyfriend broke up with her because of it. Joey thanked Lex for sharing something so personal with him and he told her that it didn’t make him want to run away. Joey gave her a date, but did he end up proposing to her?
The 20 Best Reality TV Shows Right Now
Ongoing strikes in the entertainment industry are affecting television, which is why many are turning to reality TV. What are the best shows right now?
Who is Lexi Young?
Lexi is a 30 year old digital strategist currently living in Atlanta, Georgia. According to him ABC bio, he graduated from his MIT summer MBA program in the top 1%. During his childhood, he moved more than 15 times. He loves playing poker and can’t live without his self-tanning mousse. Lex has a life goal to run a marathon.
During Bachelor season 28 premiere, Lexi told Joey that she was from Toronto, Canada. He told her that he was only on the show because he was a bachelor. In her premiere package, Lexi revealed that she has always wanted to be a mother, but in the last couple of years he started having health problems that seemed to come out of nowhere.
Lexi then shared that she has a condition (endometriosis) that may result in her not being able to have children. He said it was “heartbreaking” and it made him feel “self-conscious about dating.” However, Lexi shared that she has gotten to a place where she knows what she wants and she is ready to find her person. He felt “very excited” to meet Joey.
Did Lexi and Joey get engaged?
By Reality Steve, Lexi eventually eliminated herself Bachelor season 28, so she and Joey didn’t get engaged. After meeting in Malta, Lexi attended a group date the following week in Marbella, Spain. The following week, Joey and the other 10 women traveled to Montreal, Canada, during which Lexi was part of another group date. After this date, Lexi went off on her own. Reality Steve said, “Apparently their marriage and children’s timelines didn’t line up, so he left. I’m not sure whose timeline is which. I just heard that this has to do with their timelines not getting tangled up.”
Lexi and Joey seem to have a strong connection so far, so it’s surprising Lexi didn’t make it further Bachelor season 28. She is a brilliant, brave and beautiful woman. However, if Reality Steve is right, it’s possible that Joey and Lexi were simply in different places in their lives and thus weren’t completely compatible. I hope Lexi and Joey both find the love they are looking for.
Bachelor season 28 airs Mondays at 8pm ET on ABC.
