David Ridley, 38, the homeowner who was dubbed “Waco’s most eligible bachelor” on the popular HGTV show “Fixer Upper” is eligible no more.
Ridley got engaged over the weekend to a school teacher in Alabama.
“It’s a total God thing,” Ridley said when reached by phone.
Ridley was the only single homebuyer ever to appear on “Fixer Upper.”
His episode, which involved renovating a 1969 ranch-style home, debuted as the most-watched of the popular series, and garnered some of the biggest TV ratings in the history of the cable network.
The bachelor has show-stopping good looks and prior to moving to Waco, modeled professionally in New York City, once gracing the bags and walls of Abercrombie & Fitch and landing modeling gigs alongside supermodel Kate Moss in Vogue magazine.
The focus landed Ridley an instant social media following of nearly 8,000 people and the bachelor became the subject of articles in publications such as "Country Living" and online stories for "The Today Show."
