Here’s our Top 11 Bachelors!!
Brad Cecchi (28), Chef de Cuisine at Grange Restaurant
This guy is awesome! Passionate about food, wine and beer… but not pretentious! Isn’t that something? Brad is always fun to be around, up for anything, and seriously one of the best people I know. Limited time offer, while supplies last.
Eric Dietz (29), Legislative Director for Assemblymember Allan Mansoor
While most men are content to just muddle through life, occasionally veering off the well-beaten path of “mediocre education, loveless marriage, ungrateful kids, depressing retirement, death,” Eric James Dietz lives life to its fullest. Not satisfied with just blazing a trail through California’s harsh political climate, he has to constantly challenge himself to bigger and better things. Disarming would-be thieves, attempting to harness the energy of 100% clean and renewal biofuels, fighting grizzly bears, painting the perfect sunset, discovering a truly delicious low-calorie beer, mastering flamenco — he will not be sated. Ladies, he also *loves* babies. Just adores them.
Steve Eliason, 42, Interior Designer, House Crashers
He has never been married and is a great guy. He would be the perfect guy for a lucky girl! He is an avid Seahawk fan. Owns his own home and a very hard worker. He is a kid at heart and has a great sense of humor. He is great with kids.
Eric Frazer (33), Insurance Broker
Eric is a great guy who is successful, sweet and fun. He enjoys snowboarding, wakeboarding, working out and more, and deserves a nice girl who shares his values, spirit and fun.
Nate Jones (23), Groove Crew Member, Sacramento River Cats; Ticket Sales Executive, Sacramento Mountain Lions
When Nate is not busting a move on the diamond at Raley Field, he can be spotted on the grid at one of his favorite local watering holes. Nate enjoys supporting his alma matter, Indiana University, hitting the links, and playing beach volleyball. Nate’s got rhythm, style, and a great sense of humor.
Carlos Quant (26), Associate Finance Budget Analyst at the California Department of Finance
Carlos is trustworthy, reliable, honest and very bright. He enjoys spending time with his family and his close friends, is not much of a drinker or partier, and is very driven to accomplishing his goals. I know that he would treat any girl who appreciate his great qualities incredibly well.
Ryan Schnabel (36), Medical Device Sales
As cliché as it sounds Ryan is just an overall great guy. Ryan owns a home in Sacramento where he shares it with the two current loves of his life. His dog and cat (try not to hold the whole “cat guy” thing against him. I think he inherited it from an ex). Ryan is the eternal athlete. He played baseball competitively his whole life and still does to this day. Not only is he athletic but he is extremely dedicated to a healthy lifestyle. Ryan loves the outdoors and remains extremely active. My most favorite quality about Ryan is that he is an amazing friend. He has a big heart and cares deeply about his family and friends. Most importantly (in my book) he has a great personality and the uncanny ability to laugh at himself. He’s confident, but not cocky. Super hot, but doesn’t know it (well maybe a little). Most definitely Sacramento’s most eligible bachelor.
Chris Sheehy (30), Account Manager, Siemens Industry
Chris is THE catch. He’s handsome, kind, hilarious, intelligent, works hard, trains hard, and gives back. He is currently training for the AR50 (American River 50 miles endurance run) and working to raise money for Special Operations Warrior Foundation. His next race will be the Western States 100. Even though he trains often, he still finds time to hang out with his sister and visit his nieces and nephews… He never forgets a birthday, he’s always there to lend a hand or offer some advice. He is a loyal friend and all around awesome person. He is not looking for a woman to take care of him but someone to share life with and be a partner to. He’s not the kind of guy looking for a maid or a mother, he even knows how to do his own laundry! He is my best friend and there is nobody better. Trust me, you won’t be disappointed.
Alexander Sigua (26), Public Relations Manager for the Sacramento Kings
Alexander Sigua, for Girls on the Grid 2011 Most Eligible Bachelor. He is a total catch. He is smart, witty and undeniably funny but most importantly he has the biggest heart. He always puts the people he loves before himself. When I was 13 the only thing I wanted most in the world was to go to an N’Sync concert. Seeing as how I was only 13 and could not drive myself my brother, who was 17 at the time, drove me to Arco Arena and sat with me and my best friend during the entire concert. That was the last place he wanted to be but he was there because that’s the kind of guy he is, completely selfless. Behind his charm and good looks he is a great guy and he is the best candidate that I could ever imagine for Girls on the Grid’s Most Eligible Bachelor!
Darren Spicer (24), Solar Legacy Account Manager, Paramount Energy Solutions
Darren Spicer is a resident of midtown, but he was born and raised in Oregon. Darren has mixed his small town upbringing in conjunction with the more urban lifestyle of Sacramento. Darren’s been up and down the west coast and loves to spend time outdoors. He is sweet and easy-going, but he’s also a professional with a great career and is totally passionate about his job. He loves his family and has a great relationship with his mom. (It’s important!) While continually trying to learn more improve his abilities, Darren is increasing his knowledge in his career field and any young lady would be lucky to catch him at this time! Finding a decent single man in Sacramento wouldn’t be hard if more guys were like Darren.
My friend Darren is one of the nicest guys I have ever met. Not only is he kind, he is understanding and a loyal friend. Every time I see Darren he is laughing and having fun. He is such an easy guy to get along with. He is also easy to talk to. He has a great family relationship and a great job. I think any girl would be lucky to date Darren. In fact I wish there were more guys like Darren in this world.
Gary Stock (37), Nurse Anesthetist
The reason I’m nominating him is because he is Awe-some! He’s the kind of guy that is truly looking for that right girl, loves kids, and can’t wait to have a family. He’s a wonderful friend to people and is very generous. He has a great job and is super smart. He’s laid back…not one of those high-maintenance, pretty boys…and loves photography, traveling, and going hiking, backpacking, and skiing. Most weekends in the summer you can find him BBQing out front of his house, hanging with the neighbors & having a few beers. He also bought a house about two years ago that he’s restoring, which is pretty darn cool. To top it all off, he’s hilarious. He’s truly a wonderful, kind, and caring person who is a catch.
