BACHELORETTE star Michael Allio is nothing if not a catch.
But beneath the success story lies a tragic story.
Who is Michael Allio and how old is he?
At 36-years-old, Allio is one of the oldest contestants on the show.
He's also a single father to a son, James, who was born in 2016.
On his LinkedIn page, he describes himself as an "experienced entrepreneur with a passion for start-up businesses, developing novel products and services, making lasting connections and serving the greater good."
But beneath all this do-good lies a terrible and tragic story.
What is the tragedy that befell Michael Allio?
As we mentioned, Allio is a single father to a son.
But the reason he's a single father is because he's also a widower.
His wife, Laura — who is the mother of his son — died of breast cancer in 2019. She was only 33 years old.
In her honor, Allio founded what was one of the biggest successes of his professional career.
What does Michael Allio do for a living?
Allio runs an all-volunteer project called the L4 Project, whose main purpose is to help other charities.
And it's all thanks to his late wife, Laura.
