GENEVIEVE PARISI, AARON CLANCY
What nationality is Aaron Clancy?
Bachelor in Paradise star Aaron is of American nationality. He lives in San Diego, California, and proudly has a Trinidadian flag on display at his home which is often seen in the background of his Instagram stories.
His parents raised him in the the Los Angeles suburb of Walnut, alongside his older brother and younger brother. The middle child, Aaron, attended Mt. San Antonio College before transferring to UC San Diego as a college student.
He went on to work as an account executive for Health IQ, a California company that hired him back in 2019. Currently, Aaron lives with his best friend and BIP buddy James Bonsall, who he met during Katie’s season of The Bachelorette.
The Bachelor in Paradise star’s race
Aaron has South Asian roots from his mother, Susan Clancy’s side, and white American ethnicity from his father. His mom is Indo-Trinidadian, which the Bachelor in Paradise star has mentioned on social media before.
Born on September 7, 1994 to mom Susan – who is from Trinidad, Tobago – and dad Robert, Aaron has become incredibly well-travelled by visiting places like Dominican Republic and Hawaii since he joined BIP.
Aaron also confirmed his father is also of German-Irish descent in a Q&A, revealing: “It’s all kind of a melting pot of genetics.” His s mother Susan has worked as a sales representative since October 2001.
Aaron’s romance with Genevieve
Aaron, who turned up during week two, has been forming a romance with Genevieve on BIP season 8. He told her that he missed her after the singles were forced to spend time apart, and didn’t date or kiss anyone else.
He asked her on a double date with James and Shanae Ankney. Genevieve admitted to knowing him in a “platonic” way — saying in a confessional if Aaron was into her, “he’s never made it known.”
Actually, the two met before the beach, at a bar. Aaron confirmed on Bachelor Nation’s Click Bait podcast that they met “randomly” before Clayton Echard’s season aired but said their interaction was “super, super surface-level.”
