Loyal Bachelor Nation viewers will remember learning in the first episode of JoJo Fletcher’s season of “The Bachelorette” that contestant Alex Woytkiw has a twin brother, Adam. Even though Adam did not compete on the show with Alex, Talk Nerdy With Us still wanted to talk with Adam about Alex’s time on the show, what life has been like for both of them since the show ended, and what he nerds out about.
Viewers of “The Bachelorette” did not get to know you like they got to know Alex. So what is one thing that people would be surprised to know about you?
I’ve been married for almost three years. It freaks people out seeing such a young couple. (laughs)
You, like Alex, also served our country, correct? What branch of service were you in? What made you want to join that branch?
I served in the United States Marine Corps for five years. I joined the military because I always felt that serving was a great way to give back to our country.
Unlike Alex, you have found the love of your life, Sarah. How did you guys meet?
We met through a mutual friend at a hole in the wall sushi spot.
When I talked to Alex, he told me that your wife was the one who initially put him up to “The Bachelorette.” How did you feel about him going on the show?
The whole process went by so fast that I didn’t really have a chance to realize what was happening.
What was it like seeing your brother on television and seeing his personal, romantic relationship with JoJo develop?
It was really interesting to see him put himself out there for the world to see. He never does that usually.
What has it been like dealing with Alex’s new found “celebrity”? Or is he still the same guy that he was before he went on the show?
Not much has changed since the show. He still acts as ridiculous as ever (laughs). Aside from all of the random girls saying hi during dinner, everything has pretty much stayed the same.
Since Alex made it pretty far on the show, I’m sure that you have been mistaken out in public for him. Describe those “fan” encounters for me.
Guys and girls will walk up to me and ask for photos. I try to explain to them that I’m not Alex, but it typically doesn’t bother them. It’s so easy just to take a picture and go with the flow that I’m sure by now that I’m in half the pictures Alex is tagged in. (laughs)
Our website is called Talk Nerdy With Us, so what brings out your inner nerd? What do you “nerd out” over?
I usually nerd out hard during movies. I’ll do research on topics while a movie or TV show is airing and try to poke holes in the concept or background information. My wife hates that I can’t just sit down and let a movie play without playing on my phone.
