Shawn Bullard from "Match Made in Heaven" stars in the WE tv reality dating competition series as the bachelor looking for love among 24 women vying for his affections.

As a native of Philadelphia, Shawn Bullard is proud to be a 34-year-old owner of a successful real estate development company in the metropolitan area of the city for almost a decade. The self-proclaimed "millionaire who does one million things" is a serial entrepreneur who owns several businesses in addition to his real estate development company, including a hair salon and restaurant in the city. He has been recognized by several notable organizations for his achievements as a real estate developer and investor. In 2009, the Fox Business of School announced Shawn as the winner of the distinguished "Be Your Own Boss" Bowl, making him the first African-American to win this honor.

Through all of his success, Shawn has remained humble because it did not come easy. As one of two brothers growing up in one of the toughest towns in America, Shawn had to overcome many trials and tribulations in order to stay on course. Shawn's mother, Maggie Bullard, played a significant role in his determination and drive. This drive would inspire Shawn to walk on to the Temple University football team, which resulted in a full scholarship for football. Shawn thrived in both academics and athletics while at Temple University. He credits football for his confidence, tenacity and hustle especially after losing his father to cancer when he was 22 years old. Not only did he start for the football team, he was also an All-American in track and field. His mother, Maggie, could not have been more proud the day he graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Sport and Recreation Management with a minor in Tourism and Hospitality. Although Shawn was ready to enter the business world, his performance as a star football player at Temple led to a three-year run in the NFL. After his stint at the NFL, Shawn dedicated himself to manifesting his dream of owning a thriving business that would one day be family owned.

Shawn would accomplish his dream with a thriving real estate development company and his mother, Maggie managing it in the position of controller. Maggie also acts as the controller in Shawn's romantic life quite often because of all he is juggling. As an eligible bachelor, Shawn is a globetrotter who enjoys partaking in the finer things in life and a diverse array of women but also keeping balance with a healthy lifestyle. This former professional athlete makes fitness a priority whether working out at the gym or demonstrating his black belt skills in Tae Kwon Do. Most importantly, Maggie instilled in him the importance of giving back to his community. Shawn greatly enjoys mentoring the youth in Philadelphia, especially those in the inner city. Although his life is quite fulfilling, the only thing missing is Shawn's leading lady with whom he can share his success.
