Morrison tells Us Weekly that he found interest in the role after evaluating how Bachelor and Bachelorette couples change from season to season.

“When I was in Hairspray on Broadway, Trista and Ryan Sutter visited the production. It was right after their final episode aired, and they just seemed so down to earth, an incredible couple,” he recalled. “That was when, I assume, the show was fresh and truly about finding a connection with someone. But I think most people who go on these shows have to be a little lost and in search of some fulfillment. That’s the attitude and naïveté I brought into the character of Scottie.”
