The Lifetime movie The Bachelor Next Door is about a newly engaged couple, Alex (Haylie Duff) and Gavin (Steven Bruns) and their new neighbor Donnie. While peeking out her window, Alex notices Donnie “yelling and punching the wall like a crazy person.” And sure enough, Donnie starts to stalk Alex. Donnie says he’s not stalking her, and then he tries to explain that he’s helping her.
Donnie is portrayed by Michael Welch. He’s known for his roles on Z Nation (Mack Thompson), The Riches (Ike), Joan of Arcadia (Luke Girardi), and Jesse (Gabe), and in the 2008 Twilight movie (Matt Newton), among many others. Fun fact about Welch: He made his acting debut in a 1998 episode of Frasier as Young Niles. The Bachelor Next Door premiere on Lifetime on Friday, October 20 at 8pm.
Day 1 to Week 3- Well, we’re halfway through & so far we’re on a decent path, but it could be better. I was really focused those first two weeks and felt myself sliding last week. But once again, you people saved me by your mere presence. So thank you. This is normally where I would trail off and have to start over but you’re not gonna let me do that! This time, I build on my progress. I’ll check in next week. Onward!
