Season 13 of The Bachelorette is about Rachel Lindsay's journey to love. And, since she was a fan favorite, I'm not at all surprised that she has a whopping 31 men vying to take that journey with her. One of these Bachelorette contestants is Kenneth aka Diggy, and you'll want to get to know him.
So far, 31-year-old Diggy has figured out that first impressions are best way to get into Rachel's (and the viewers') good graces. Based on his social media and ABC bio, Diggy seems to take "honesty is the best policy" to an entirely new level. When asked about his most embarrassing moment, Diggy responded with, "When I was stranded on a toilet for hours in 5th grade." There's a story there.
The bio continues with another strange tale. When asked about a "fun one night stand story," Diggy said, "I spent all day with this girl and she ended up coming home with me and we had sex. She then received a text saying her brother was missing, so I played asleep so I didn't have to help!" Well... OK.
If those stories have you wanting to know more about Diggy, you can read more below.
He's From Chicago
According to Diggy Moreland's LinkedIn profile, he is a senior inventory analyst for Groupon in Chicago. He seems to have made a home for himself in the area, by sharing his #TrainChicago photos and his love for the Chicago Bulls on Instagram.
Diggy is also one of four Chicago suitors on this season, which was highlighted in a Chicago Tribune write-up on the Chicago locals competing on The Bachelorette.
He Has A Sense Of Humor
Perhaps Diggy's strategy is to show off his sense of humor in order to win Rachel Lindsay's heart. His Instagram is full of hilarious gems from the sweet and silly Mother's Day posts to traveling around LA in a onesie.
In this recent post for Mother's Day, Diggy wrote, "For those that rocked with me last year, you remembered that on Mother's Day I posted a picture of my mom, and indicated that she owed me $10. UPDATE: Moms has still not paid me the $10 that she owes me plus interest and penalties. I will be giving you to the end of the day to pay the amount owed or I will be turning this case over to a debt collection agency to take matters to the next step. XoXO"
It seems Diggy has a way with one-liners too because his LinkedIn profile describes his job at Groupon as, "I analyze cities and hold them hostage. Give me all your disposable income!!"
He Loves Sneakers
If the many pictures of sneakers on his Instagram page don't give away Diggy's love for sneakers, then check his LinkedIn profile where it states that he worked for Nike for eight months as a business analyst.
He Loves Dogs
Diggy may love taking pictures of his sneakers, but he also loves taking pictures of his dog, Meela. His appreciate for dogs doesn't stop at Meela. Diggy has celebrated puppy day at the office or shared with his followers when he is trying to decide if Meela needs a new friend.
Diggy may put his silliest face forward, but it seems he also cares about his community as well. His Instagram may be covered with his sneaker obsession, but Diggy seems open to sharing with the rest of the world.
In this post from September 2015, Diggy wrote, "Surprised my favorite homeless person with a few pairs of new sneakers this morning! He said: 'Timing was right. Got a date on Saturday. By the way you know McDonald's is gonna have all day breakfast??' Happy Friday my dude. 😂😂 #nike#sneakers#makeadifference#ShoesSoFresh"
Of course, no one can guess how Diggy's luck will turn out when he competes for Rachel's heart, but so far, Kenneth "Diggy" Moreland is creating a solid foundation as the silly and sweet contestant. Just hopefully he's grown out of his "sleeping to get out of helping people" strategy.
