After Crawley left the show with Dale Moss, Moynes stayed on to try his luck at love with Adams. While the former phlebotomist sent him packing before hometown dates, Thurston invited him to stay on when he appeared partway through season 17.
Before his Bachelor Nation journey, Moynes dedicated most of his life to the great outdoors. He describes himself as a wildlife enthusiast and studied “every kind of wildlife management program” while he was in college. After graduation, he began working as a wildlife program manager. He runs an Instagram account, @mowglimoynes, dedicated to “supporting conservation professionals, organizations and initiatives” and prides himself on volunteering to help a different endangered species every year.
