No rose for WSUV grad on ‘The Bachelorette’

By , Columbian Features editor

It was “hello, goodbye” for Marcus Lathan, who has Clark County connections, on the 17th season of ABC’s “The Bachelorette.”

Lathan was among 30 men competing for the attentions of bachelorette Katie Thurston, a marketing manager from Renton. Thurston did not grace him with a rose in Monday’s season premier, however, so he’s out of the competition for her hand in marriage.

ABC’s website says Lathan, 30, lives in Portland. Lathan’s Facebook profile identifies him as a real-estate broker who works on both sides of the Columbia River. Brantley Christianson Real Estate’s Camas office lists him working there.

The Columbian’s archives indicate Lathan attended Mountain View High School, where he competed on the track and field team. He graduated from Washington State University Vancouver, according to his LinkedIn profile.

“Marcus is a sweet guy with a calming presence about him. He has built a very successful professional life investing in properties, but now he is ready to shift his focus and invest in himself,” according to Lathan’s “bachelor biography” on ABC’s website. “He loves to play board games – Monopoly being his all-time favorite – and finds great joy in taking in all that the Portland culinary scene has to offer.”
