Who is Bachelorette contestant Josh Murray?

Josh Murray is a 29-year-old contestant from Atlanta, Georgia competing for Bachelorette Andi Dorfman’s heart on Season 10 of the hit show.

So who is Bachelorette contestant Josh Murray?

Josh was born Josh Allan Murray August 12, 1984 making him a Leo. We know he has a pretty famous brother named Aaron Murray, a quarter-back for the University of Georgia. And we know Andi’s dad Hy LOVES UGA football so that is a serious plus.

He is extraordinarily close to his family of five. In fact he moved to Athens Georgia to follow brother Aaron’s football career. He also moved back to Tampa Florida in 2007 to be with his family. I suspect it had to do with his mother Lauren’s battle with brain cancer.

We also know that Josh is pretty smart because the strapping 6′-2″,  200 lb baseball player graduated Cum Laude from Tampa Jesuit in Tampa, Florida in 2002 and that in 2010 he earned Athletic Director’s Honor Roll distinction for spring semester. He provides Financial Services for Capstone Financial.

(This is already looking MUCH better for Andi–remember Juan Pablo was unemployed and living with his mom and dad.)

We know that Josh is spiritual and Jesuit Catholic, although his mother is Jewish. He went to a Jesuit High School in Tampa Florida and sister Stephanie recently posted a photo with the family after getting baptized.

We know that he has a gorgeous mom named Lauren (Shiro is her maiden name and her father is Ted) and a pretty good looking family in general!

Josh’ parents have lived in Tampa Florida since moving from Miami 24 years ago when Dennis accepted an engineering job. Dennis, like Josh was a baseball star and was also drafted and played minor league baseball when he was young.

Lauren, confirmed his involvement in the show with the Athens Banner-Herald.

“He left Sunday (for California) and had to give up all forms of communication,” Lauren Murray said.

Josh was nominated by two family members from Philadelphia that always teased him about not having a girlfriend.

“He thought it was a joke when (ABC) called him,” Lauren Murray said.

Lauren claims the “limo arrivals” will be filmed Wednesday night, with the first rose episode happening in the early morning hours Thursday.

And we know that Josh LOVES his momma. He recently sent this tweet:
