Twenty-nine-year-old Garrett Yrigoyen stars on this upcoming season of The Bachelorette and it sounds like he will be at least one guy to keep an eye on.

So what do we know thus far:

1: He’s a Pisces. He was born February 24, 1989 Garrett Vincent Yrigoyen and grew up in Manteca, CA–now lives in Reno, Nevada.


2: He attended th University of Nevada where he played baseball.

  1. Not hispanic, not latino….Basque instead…his looks and likes …basque. See: Hirigoyen. Hirigoyen is a surname. According to, the name is of Basque origin, with the highest global occurrence in the French province of Aquitaine in the southwest of that country. Several variants are known, including “Yrigoyen.”

  2. Garrett’s surname Yrigoyen could be Argentine as his name is a subway station in Buenos Aires. That would make him hispanic european descent. Does anyone know about his background? I am disappointed with Becca being an independent woman accepting his likes. He has to profoundly believe his choices because it was more than one. Talk and little apologies are cheap. I think he exploited Becca’s father’s death, endearing himself, by comparing himself to him. If he indeed is part Argentine, I would hope that he would read, learn and listen before expounding judgement. Do not judge lest you be judged. Blake had depth and wasn’t as superficial as Garrett. I hope she knows what she’s doing.

  3. Would like to get opinion from his ex about Garret. It’s important to know the other side to make the proper judgement; otherwise there is an open doubt.
    If I was Becka before I sign the papers I would hire a private detective to clear my doubts.
    I personally don’t like surprises.
