Thursday Morning Man: Ross Jirgl!
Came across this guy’s Instagram yesterday and all I can say is, “What. A. Hunk.”
He’s Ross Jirgl and he works for the Stanford University football program as a sports performance coach.
But he became best-known for crashing ABC’s The Bachelor last year.
He found out from a mutual friend that his ex-girlfriend of seven years, Becca Kufrin, was on the show. He had tracked down contact information for the show’s producers, who ultimately were receptive to his story and his visit. Jirgl showed up on set in Peru to try to win Kufrin back before it was too late and she was potentially engaged.
She wasn’t interested but the gesture made Jirgl a bit of a celebrity and won him thousands of Instagram followers.
