James Fuertes from "The Bachelorette 2016" is one of the bachelors vying for the affection of JoJo Fletcher in Season 12 of the ABC reality dating series. He is a 34-year-old boxing club owner from Nashville, Tennessee. He attended Liberty University. He has tattoos on his right shoulder, left bicep, and his back. He is getting them removed by laser.

Here is an interview with James Fuertes ("Bachelorette"):

Would you describe yourself as "the party-starter," "the wingman" or "the laid back one"? Somewhere between the wingman and the laid back one.

What are your three best attributes? My drive/desire to succeed, ability to make strangers feel welcome at my place of work, positive attitude.

All-time favorite movies: "A River Runs Through It," "Gladiator," "Les Miserables."

What's the most embarrassing style you've rocked? Buzz cut with big bangs up front — ridiculous.

What does being married mean to you? Life-long commitment. I see it as a huge, huge deal. Too many divorces are happening. I would love to have the marriage my parents have.

Do you follow a specific diet? Yes, carb cycling.

What is the most outrageous thing you have ever done? Left the safety of chiropractic to pursue my fitness and acting dreams.

Who is the person you love most in the world and why? My sister's kids — sometimes I feel like my heart could burst around them.

What is your all-time favorite book and why? Besides the Bible (since that seems cliché!), I liked "The Circle" series by Ted Dekker, or "Wizard's First Rule." Both create such vivid battle scenes you can almost smell the environment.
