David: The Bachelorette’s NJB
The Bachelorette is a popular show among all age groups. People love watching it to see all types of drama and to see if the lucky guy or girl will end up with someone special in the end.
One-on-one dates and group dates are where the audience and fans of the show get to see who the bachelor or bachelorette has the most connections with. It’s also where they get to see who they absolutely should not end up with.
This season, Jewish girls had someone special to root for, and that was bachelorette Becca Kufrin’s potential match, David. Yes, the guy who showed up in a chicken suit.
David is a NJB (nice Jewish boy) who was in Alpha Epsilon Pi in college. Anyone who was in Greek life knows AEPi is where the majority of Jewish boys end up, so naturally David became someone that all the Jewish girls swooned over this season.
David, unfortunately, did not get one of the coveted roses at the rose ceremony and was sent home. But while Becca may not have have seen a future with him, that doesn’t mean all hope is lost for this Jewish guy to have his chance at stomping the glass. After stealing the hearts of many of the girls who watched the show this season and proving himself to be an overall really nice guy, who in my opinion, was underrated, I’m sure there is a lucky nice Jewish girl waiting out there for him. I certainly wouldn’t say no to a bagel and shmear and a night on the town.
With his huge popularity, David could even be up for the spot as the next bachelor. Together, we’ll have to watch to see what’s in store for David, but until then, fans like me will continue to watch the show. Even with the lack of Jewish charm, fateful viewers can’t wait to see who Becca chooses in the end.
