An Indian-American neuroscientist from Brooklyn is among the latest male contestants on the popular reality TV show Bachelorette.

Pardeep Singh, whose Twitter handle is @Deepbrainstmuli and who is the host of DeepThoughtsPodcast, describes himself as ‘Made in Brooklyn’ announced his win Sept. 27, 2021.

“Surprise! I’m going to be on the Bachelorette! My excitement level is over 9,000 statistically significant (rose emoji)’s! Tune in Tuesday October 19th on ABC!!!” Singh tweeted accompanied by his picture.

The 30 year old neuroscientist is described by Bachelorette as “the perfect combo of looks and intelligence!”

In a note to Desi Talk, Singh said he was only the second person of Indian origin to make it on the show.

“I think its a historic  moment that represents progress for all Indians in New York and I hope you can spread the word about me and my hopes on the show,” he said.

The ABC reality show described Singh’s work and life.

“For work, he studies the brain to find cures for diseases like Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s; and though he spends his days buttoned up in a lab, when he has free time, he’s anything but serious. This self-proclaimed nerd who loves Comic-Con, video games and reading also has an undeniable Brooklyn edge about him. Pardeep is truly a unique catch who wants to find someone family oriented, affectionate, and who cares about making the world a better place just as much as he does. And if she can occasionally nerd out with him, GREAT!”

Among his habits, Singh ‘loves to sleep in on Saturdays…. Loves New Year’s because he loves new beginnings… (and) doesn’t enjoy sitting on park benches,’ the show says in his profile.

On his Instagram account, Singh recalls his family history. In a photo with his grandmother, he writes about how the ancestral family immigrated to Guyana when the British ruled over India.

“Her family was moved from India to the West Indies as indentured servants and was given 600 British pounds to “start a new life” in a foreign and unfamiliar land. When my grandmother moved to Brooklyn, she mothered 11 children, bought a home and stayed with one loving husband,” Singh says in a moving account. “She never once fussed about her circumstances, despite starting with nothing when she moved to the United States. I don’t know my family back in India, and I probably never will,” he says.

“These are the stories I think about whenever I get cynical about the state of our country. I always ask myself “am I doing enough” when I know so many others started with far less. Stay happy folks. Brighter times are ahead,” Singh says.

In another Instagram post, Singh recounts how the past year went and what the future holds.

“2021 has been full of surprises so far.. … Though 2020 ended with my grandfather passing, I promised that this year I’d emerge as a leader in my community, share my vulnerabilities, find love, and break boundaries in the sciences and politics.  eason 2 of @deep_thoughts_podcast is in the works and y’all are gonna be hype ???? about the other announcements coming soon.”
