Who is DC's Most Eligible Bachelor? DCSL gives their final rose

Who is DC's Most Eligible Bachelor? DCSL gives their final rose

Tuesday night was the finale of another dramatic season of ABC's, the Bachelorette. 

But DC Sports Live could not let Hannah B. have all the fun. 

A group of ten eligible DC and Baltimore athletes were the "contestants" on this version of the show. 

DCSL Most Eligible Bachelor
Tom Wilson Jakub Vrana
Juan Soto Carter Kieboom
Troy Apke Bryce Love
Troy Brown Jr. Rui Hachimura
Adley Rutchman Trey Mancini

From there, the group was taken down to eight. Capitals right winger, Tom Wilson and Orioles right fielder, Trey Mancini were the first to be voted off.

A Twitter poll was created and two clear winners emerged, Nationals Juan Soto and Capitals Jakub Vrana.

On night one of our own version of the two-night finale, Redskins safety Troy Apke was given the first impression rose, advancing him to the finals.

And then there were three.

It was a tight race and each young man could have been the right choice.

But Troy Apke put himself over the top with a video submission campaigning why he should be chosen.

He said he would watch the sunset with you, toss a football around and he has a german shepherd. 

Apke was the clear winner, his enthusiasm proved that. He was offered the final rose... fingers crossed he accepts the honor.
