Mike has a total psycho vibe about him. He looks like the type who could become a stalker . . .gee, maybe he and Rachel ARE the best match! She's kinda like the female version of Mike. Zounds.

Just Forting Around

It wouldn’t surprise me to hear he’s up late at night in an underground darkroom piecing together cryptic love letters from magazine cutouts. How did this guy end up on this show? Did NBC conduct an open call for burgeoning stalkers? My gut says he was deliberately cast by NBC (not a plant, but someone easily seduced) to help create the illusion that Rachel is somehow desirable. I wonder what type of questions they asked him when they were casting, you know the standard…how long does it take for you to fall in love? do you find uncontrollable eye-rolling an attractive quality in a woman? ever camped out on a woman’s front lawn with night vision goggles?
I don't (of course!) know Mike personally, but it just seems to me that he's one of these negative people - who always look for the worst in every situation... a pessimist... He doesn't seem to ever smile and doesn't seem to have a sense of humor... Lighten up, Mike... it's only Rachel, and (for now anyway) it's only $250,000!!
And once again Berries, we think alike. I agree, Mike is so morose and humorless, yet she is very attracted to him. Why? I don't even think he is all that good looking. In fact, of those left, I think he is the least attractive. Oh well, no accounting for taste.

The actor you're thinking of is David Boreanaz.

Who's got the Bacon?

Mike is just unrelentingly glum & creepy. Maybe he was homeschooled as a youngster? (No offense to any homeschoolers here, but our boy doesn't seem to have been socialized much).
He also reminds me of a young Willem Dafoe--HE never smiles, either. Can anyone else see it?
You're thinking of Jeremy Irons, or should I say, Simon Gruber, the terrorist from Die Hard with a Vengeance. I see the resemblance too...the creepy facial expressions, hideous frosted tips, innocent hostages...oh wait

I can't think of a more pretentious sport. Maybe he went to boarding school (likewise, no offense to boarding schoolers)? It seems like he was missing a healthy dose of social interaction (particularly with females), otherwise he wouldn't be so sprung on Rachel so quickly. Mike clearly does not know how to have fun. Then again, neither does Rachel (unless you count getting to first base in 90 seconds). Come to think of it, they're a perfect match.
