The Truth About The Bachelorette's Tanner Guisness

Katie Thurston's season of The Bachelorette is already off to an unprecedented start. First, both Kaitlyn Bristowe and Tayshia Adams will return to the franchise as co-hosts to replace Chris Harrison. Plus, both Season 17 and 18 will be filmed back-to-back, featuring both Katie and The Bachelor runner-up Michelle Young as leading ladies. 

Details dropped in mid-March 2021 about the men (like rapper Riff Raff's younger brother and Bachelor Nation star Clay Harbor's cousin), who are expected to appear on Katie's season, which is set in New Mexico. Katie will certainly have her pick of eligible bachelors! Yet San Diego-based Tanner Guisness already seems like the perfect match for marketing manager Katie. Both are 30-something professionals from the West Coast (Katie lives in Seattle, WA), and seem to have a shared love of pets, fun, sex jokes, and crazy adventures.

Tanner Guisness founded a beer game company

The University of Colorado at Boulder alum has a degree in marketing — much like Bachelorette Katie Thurston — and belonged to Sigma Alpha Epsilon fraternity. 

Tanner keeps his love of drinking games alive as the founder and CEO of lifestyle brand Dyeislife. According to the company website, Tanner started the line while a junior in college in 2015 to "keep a record of my and my friends experiences playing beer die and snappa." Tanner states the brand's mission is to "spread the game from coast to coast, bring the best unfiltered/non-PC content to you for your viewing pleasure, and to keep Dyeislife in the hands of the people who made it great to begin with, all of you!" The platform boasts over 150,000 users

Per Tanner's Instagram, he also enjoys boating, dogs, and even skydiving. Tanner can even keep up with Katie's sex-positive jokes. Maybe he is the special someone for Katie after all!
