Ryan Chenevert is in the running for "Bachelor Of The Year."
Chenevert is Louisiana's representative in a national contest run by Cosmopolitan Magazine.
He says a friend from school nominated him, and he never thought he had a chance to be picked.
Ryan works for a judge's office in Gonzalez, and said the judge was one of the first people to congratulate him.
He says he is normally shy, so flying to New York for his photo shoot was a pretty surreal experience.voting started this week, and runs until october 18th, which is two weeks from tomorrow.
You can go to Cosmo's website to vote.
This is the 8th year of the contest, and Ryan said he wants to be the first man from Louisiana to win.
