Country boy Adam Moyer won the affections of Southern belle Devin Grissom to emerge as the winner of the first season of the CMT reality series Sweet Home Alabama. The results were revealed Thursday night (Sept. 1) during the season finale.
After agonizing over her decision, Grissom chose Moyer for his strong values and big heart. Since the beginning of the season, Moyer, a horse trainer from Tennessee, was a fan favorite because of his endearing one-liners. He also earned respect of Grissom and viewers when he chose not to "kiss and tell" about their first date.
Runner-up Tribble Reese proved to be a strong contender and fan favorite early in the series, but Grissom ultimately followed her heart.
Although hurt by Grissom's decision, Reese has decided to give love another chance, signing on to be the new bachelor on the second season of Sweet Home Alabama, scheduled to premiere Oct. 20 on CMT. This time, he will be faced with the tough decision of city versus country in the search for Ms. Right, choosing between girls from all across the nation who are heading to Alabama to help mend his broken heart.
Raised near Birmingham, Ala., Reese was recruited by Clemson University where he was a quarterback and earned a degree in marketing. After college, he played quarterback in the arena league for the Carolina Speed of Charlotte, N.C. Reese was voted a 2008 "Most Eligible Bachelor" in South Carolina for Cosmopolitan magazine and was voted Jezebel magazine's "Most Beautiful" in 2010. He's currently pursuing his MBA and a career in mobile application development while living in Atlanta.
