What is ‘The Bachelorette’ contestant John Henry’s job?

John truly does stand out from the other contenders since his career involves a lot of time in the water.

Per John's ABC profile, the Virginia Beach native is extremely passionate about his work as an underwater welder in Wilmington, N.C. In fact, he frequently shares snapshots of his work under the sea on his Instagram feed.

In an Oct. 26, 2022, pinned Instagram post, John can be seen in full diving gear.

“Dive all day, school all night. One day it’ll all pay off. #bluecollar #projectmanagement #weldporn,” John captioned the post.

Aside from John’s love of the water, other fun facts about him may spark Charity's interest. For starters, he loves pumpkin-spiced lattes, he has only watched 20 movies in his life, and he's more partial to ornamental grasses than florals, per his bio.

Not to mention, John’s Instagram feed shows that he has a deep affinity for fishing, hunting, and a love for animals.

So, will John and Charity have a happily ever after? Only time will tell. But since they both have Southern roots and a love for adventure, they have common ground to build on.
